  • 12. IBM Global Technology ServicesFamous last words "When anyone asks me how I can best describe my experience in nearly 40 years at sea, I merely say: uneventful. Of course, there have been winter gales and storms and fog and the like. But in all my experience, I have never been in any accident ... or any sort worth speaking about. I have seen but one vessel in distress in all my years at sea. I never saw a wreck and never have been wrecked nor was I ever in any predicament that threatened to end in disaster of any sort." Edward J. Smith, 1907 Captain, RMS Titanic © 2011 IBM Corporation
