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.

Mac Virus’

I am familiar, of course, with the theory that Macs have such a small market share, ergo, virus writers don’t bother with them. But I don’t think that’s right. Fact of the matter is, me and my fellow Mac users are so damn cocky about being virus proof, that virus writers by all rights should be working overtime just to take us down a peg. C’mon, I know you coders out there are just beside yourself in frustration that you can’t zap that smarmy Justin Long with some kind of crippling CPU tumour. You’re just dying to yell “Virus-free this, fucko!” as you send the command that will give you the power to make him cluck like a chicken while PC stands there staring with his mouth open! -)
