Well, I decided to check IBM's small market server products and guess what? They're transitioning the x86 servers them to Lenovo. So much for IBM supplying SMB servers configured with OSXServer. System Z servers are not small servers so IBM has given up on everything except large-scale computing servers, software, and specialized applications. "The Lenovo acquisition will include System x racks and towers, x86 BladeCenter and x86 Flex System blade servers and integrated...
Yes, laptops can do more than a tablet but tablet software is increasing in capabilities, even for audio engineers. I won't put where I used to work but many of the 6-8K employees I used to work with over 30+ years are now seeing iPads and iPhones as an important tool in their work. These people include scientists, engineers, and a wide variety of support personnel. They do much more than simply enter data and text, they interact with it. They continue to use desktops and...
Missed this feature. I can't remember if iCloud services is part of the Yosemite server beta (if it is, don't say, I'll just check my installation). I know Apple won't feature an enterprise server again but maybe IBM could produce an Apple-certified server running OSXServer and market it for a reasonable price for small businesses and schools. Everyone doesn't need an IBM BlueGene installation.
dated article from http://thenextweb.com/microsoft/2011/06/08/is-icloud-running-on-microsoft-amazon-cloud-services/ saying they're using both. This article talks about an application called Charles that shows traffic from both. Anyone want to try it and see what they find? It wouldn't surprise me if Apple uses more than one vendor but my original comment still holds, does the IBM & Apple commitment mean Apple would change to an IBM-hosted iCloud? If so, would this benefit...
I have a question: Who's cloud services is Apple currently using? I read it might be Microsoft's Azure cloud services. With Apple's cloud infrastructure on its way to become very large, having a cloud service provider like IBM (HW and SW) might be better in the long run than messing around with PC servers running Azure. IBM is known and used world wide and has a very capable service staff.    Anybody have actual data that says who Apple is using for both hardware and...
Lorin, you're limiting yourself. Either you grew up in a tiny cubicle doing nothing but data entry or you have a limited understanding of what other people do. Gone are the days of a stationary employee (except in certain business sweatshops). Employees need to be mobile, not tied to a big keyboard and monitor, so they can perform their work wherever it needs to be performed. Even a travel agent and a stockbroker has times where walking around helps them do their job...
If you check out Kronos' list of trademarks you'll see things like Kronos 4500 and a variety of Workgroup whatever trademarked. How can the uspto allow names that don't mean anything or are generic in nature?
Wall Street believes the lies and half-truths Samsung comes out with way too much. Where are the truth in advertising folks challenging samsung's garbage? They only attack Apple and are sucked in by samsung's lies.
If, and I don't put any faith in what Kuo says, all iPhones are delayed until next year, then Walmart, Target, Costco, and all the other iPhones vendors who significantly dropped their prices to clear inventory in anticipation of new iPhones won't have any to sell. I could see a couple of these companies making a huge blunder but not all of them. I'm sure these vendors had to get some amount of understanding from Apple that lowering the prices wouldn't leave them high and...
The Nest uses a proximity sensor to know when you're near it so it can automatically adjust its settings. Having iBeacons placed around the house goes one better since it would know where people are throughout a house and be able to handle lighting, environmental controls, as well as home security. This might be overkill but I could see it being used in this manner to control a wide variety of devices. The iBeacon works with an iPhone so everyone would have to carry...
