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:
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. Any stolen iPhone must have the ability to
be whiped clean by a remote administrator. The la... (more)
Roll Up! Roll Up! Make your guess for the Apple event!!
Yes, it is that time, the night before an Apple event, where we all take a
good guess as what will come tomorrow. What do you think? If you troll
through the rampant speculation (and it is speculation as noone really knows)
then there are some common threads.
So, just to show you I am a gambling man here are my thoughts for tomorrow:
Steve Jobs will present - should I sound like a fanboy and say that this is
all we need? There will be a Beatles announcement - it would be stupid not to
have one New iPod Touch with faster proc... (more)
Today's the day. New stuff from Apple. Of course, as soon as we know what the
new stuff is, I will blogging about it. We can argue whether we like it or
not. But, before all that Apple has done something interesting: the prices on
existing iPods have been lowered. Here are the prices as of just a few hours
8 GB iPod touch reduced to $189 from $229 ($40 off) 32 GB iPod touch reduced
to $279 from $399 ($120 off) 16 GB iPod nano reduced to $149 from $199 ($50
off) 120 GB iPod classic reduced to $229 from $249 ($20 off)

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)
HTML 5 is making some things easier to use. The first is the DOCTYPE. Located
at the top of a Web page before the opening BODY tag, the DOCTYPE describes
the syntax for the page. The roots for the DOCTYPE lie in SGML. Bearing this
in mind, all DOCTYPES for HTML 4 and XHTML require a DTD (Document Type
Definition) to describe the content. This is all gone in HTML 5. Now, all you
have to do to declare that you are using HTML 5 as your DOCTYPE is add the
following to the root of your Web page:
That's it. Easy, huh?
