Douglas R. Oberhelman

Christian Lous Lange

It's not publicly known, but antivirus companies co-operate all the time. On the surface, antivirus vendors are direct competitors.

John Boyd Orr
I'm not someone who enjoys long talks, long rehearsals. I'm very technical: I tell my actors, you come in, you sit down, you pick up a coffee, you look here, you say the line. We try it with the cameras rolling, and if it doesn't work, we adjust it until it does. It's very simple.
