AlwaysOn: Benioff Keynote

Salesforce's Marc Benioff (after determining that 60% of the audience used Yahoo!, Gmail, etc. for their personal email but still Outlook, etc. at work), on Exchange Server, Lotus Notes, and other commonly used enterprise email platforms: "It's the worst piece of technology in the whole industry!"
