20 Great Technology Quotes To Inspire, Amaze, And Amuse

The advancement of technology generally evokes a range of emotions in people from all walks of life.  Some view technology as a great evil that slowly diminishes our humanity, while others view it as a way to bring the world closer together and to help solve some of our greatest challenges.  Regardless of your view, almost everyone has a favorite quote or two about the impact that technology has on our lives.  These are my 20 favorites.

Internet vs. Traditional Car Buying

  1. Call, email or text the dealership of your choice, ask for the internet sales manager and describe what you’re looking for. If the car is in stock, you’ll have a quote within a few minutes at a price that is more competitive than you’d get by walking into the dealership. At worst, you’ll have a reply email in an hour, but at least you can go about your business.
  2. Find the car you want on Edmunds and enter in your contact information where it’s indicated. You’ll receive discounted prices upfront, followed by a call from a salesperson.
  3. Find the car you want on a dealership website and enter your contact information. An internet salesperson will be in touch shortly after to send you the price quote.

A side note about the frequency of salesperson calls and emails you may receive if you shop via the internet: We know the calls
