The iPhone is Apple’s solution to the Enterprise,

Even though most every one agrees when it comes to Apple and Enterprise, the iPhone is helping Apple reach into Enterprise. Apple had only had 1% in Oct. 2006 and jumped to 4.5 just 9 months later. It is no coincidence that the iPhone was announced in Jan. 2007 and started shipping that summer.

This is significant because Enterprise adoption of Mac’s had been at a stand still.

The surprising findings come in a report Forrester Research released today. The long-winded title: “Corporate Desktop Operating System Trends, Q4 2007 Through Q2 2008: Windows Vista Deployments Are Finally Ramping Up, While Mac Continues Its Slow March on the Enterprise.” The analyst firm monthly surveyed more than 50,000 enterprise end users from 2,500 organizations to compile the operating system trends.

Washington Post blog about the new iPhone cause’s strange comments

There are some truely angry and strange comments on this blog about not only Apple but Capitalism, Corporate greed, liberals, Prius…

Some of the comments are about having pity for the shallow people that have to HAVE the newest product that Apple and the Evil Corporate world are shoving down our throats.
Some are about people not lining up for social good but standing in line for phone that cost’s $200 and that you should spend that money on doing good for society.
Some are about giving away all of your possession and never buying anything frivolous.

How did a simple blog about the iPhone turn into a political and social discussion that angers so many people?

Don’t Run Out To Buy An iPhone Today

ALL I PHONE USERS, GET A LIFE. F THE I PHONE. YOU BRAINLESS SHEEPS. ITS JUST A STUPID PHONE. WAITING IN LINE TO GET RAPED BY APPLE AGAIN. DIDN’T YOU LEARN THE FIRST TIME APPLE CAME ON YOUR FACE AND CALLED IT RAIN.
Hilarious. All these people casting their holier-than-thou judgment on folks who are excited about a cool gadget. I assume you people have sold all every unnecessary item in your life and given all the money to charity? I’m sure that you’ve never, ever gotten excited about some inanimate object in your life before? I suppose you eat rice for dinner every night because consuming anything extravagant would be an insult to all of the starving people in the world? How about you just accept that we all have different wants and needs and that your way of living isn’t necessarily the only way of living?
