100% true even in the most progressive IT departments.
It’s the blog that I check first and the only one where I have the T-shirt! It’s been an interesting ten years. I started reading before I understood what he was talking about.
I think that Gruber’s writing has had too much influence on me. When I started reading I didn’t own a single Apple product or admit to liking 2001 too much!
OK so we all agree that this is the future of corporate computing. It’s what the users want and the good employees want this flexibility. Do we know of anyone that is actually implementing this today rather than just openning up Outlook to iPads?
As an interesting aside; the corporate move to HTML was initially sold to allow a move this sort of flexibility. The move to HTML is now almost complete and there is no no excuse. Wonder what reason they’ll find at HQ to push this down the road?
Are Apps that much more valuable HTML 5?
I think that only Apple has realized that the App Store is so valuable because it’s not full of the rubbish that fills a Google results page.
Will Google understand this?
Seriously bad news. The unlimited plan was great for photographers.
I think that I’ll look for another service or way of doing this when my renewal is up.
This is lovely.
You’re supposed to believe that financial analysts have a better understanding of a market and a company than everyone else.
The BEST prediction was out by 100%.
This is now a 7 billion dollar product for Apple. 7 BILLION!
825.1 million – Internet users in Asia.
475.1 million – Internet users in Europe.
266.2 million – Internet users in North America.
The USA is now a small outpost of the internet!
“Whatever the collection of reasons, the iPad seems to be the first Apple product that corporate IT shops are looking at with their blinders off and the Macalope didn’t expect that.”
I think that this fundamentally misunderstands whats happening on the ground. In the mid-90s I remember PCs arriving in offices, purchased on the stationary budget and network cards for PCs on expenses.
Employees are buying and using iPads. IT departments are hating it, it’s just that they don’t have the choice.
