Will Corporate America Embrace the iPhone? Apple is a “change” company. Look at their track record: Mac II, iMac, iPod and now the iPhone. What has not changed, however, is the view of Apple a company that delivers only consumer based products. Apple simply is not perceived as an Enterprise company. Apple is working to change this perception. It is a slow process but something came along to change the pace: the iPhone. Enterprise Tools coming to the iPhone Apple is looking to “wow” the professional market. For this to be successful, Apple meet certain base criteria. For instance, many enterprises need support for Microsoft Exchange; there must be strong support for industry VPN solutions, you have to be able to control who can view and who can not view content on an iPhone.

WebGL Is Now in FireFox Nightly Builds

Last week I wrote about WebKit including WebGL as part of the development code base. Today, FireFox code base also contains WebGL. WebGL is a technology that allows you to build 3D environments within the CANVAS element. How cool is that? Having a working code base is the first step towards the technology becoming part of the released code. For the record, WebKit is the foundation for Apple's Safari (both desktop and mobile), Google's Chrome and Android browsers and the Pam Pre WebOS. Here is a link to Mozilla Blog that talks about their implementation of WebGL. http://blog.vla... (more)

Is AT&T Apple's Achilles Heel?

There is no secret that I love my iPhone. I really do - I written several articles about how cool it is. So why am I thinking of getting rid of it. The answer: AT&T. Bit-O history here. I was one of the first few idiots who purchased iPhone 1.0 the same week it came out. Yes, I shelled out $600. I thought it was a good deal as I was writing about the phone and could (in my head, not so much my wife's) justify the cost. I also had to purchase the $85/mth plan from AT&T. So, now it is over two years later and I still have the same phone and I am still paying $85/mth. And I want to ... (more)

What Do You Want To See in Silverlight 4?

It used to be so easy to slam Microsoft. There are the 800lb gorilla with all the money that have done some shady business deals - but that is very much in the past. Today Microsoft keeps doing things that make it hard not to like them. They are going Open Source and being transparent and even making mistakes (Vista, anyone?) and the 800lb almost appears humble. Or maybe I need to stop drinking the cool aid. With that said, there is a very cool tool that MSFT is using to determine what will be in the next version of Silverlight. Called the "Silverlight Feature Suggestion" site, y... (more)
