Many developers wouldn't dream of developing in Delphi with iOS or Android in mind, but with cross-platform compilers, companies sitting on years of solid code may suddenly find themselves with a second wind.
Michael Lee, ZDNet, 2 May 2013
Many developers have come across Pascal early on in their careers, usually introduced as an old language to learn on. It's not surprising then that many consider Delphi, which can be considered a descendent of an object-oriented version of Pascal, to be similarly as old and possibly outdated.

Michael Lee, ZDNet Australia, 18 October 2012
Network devices are able to produce significant amounts of information, which could potentially be used to help defend against an attack in real-time and as it happens, but while analysts have only really been using the information to create statistics and pretty graphs, the concept of using the data to create tactical, self-defending networks is now beginning to emerge. In an interview with ZDNet, SafeNet VP and Chief Technical Officer Russell Dietz said that, while networks of this sort are not yet here today, the technology to implement is just around the corner.

Hamish Barwick, CSO, 17 October 2012
