If these 9,300 people are seeing an iPhone for the first time ('literally'  not millions, just 9,300), then Ford hires ignorant idiots who have no idea of the world around them (Well, they did use SYNC on their cars;-).   5% (the ratio of Ford employees getting iPhones) of the F500 companies is just over 1 million.  Again, if this TOP 5% of corporate earners haven't been exposed to the apple ecosystem, Apple has been selling to the wrong market. The BIG WIN is not...
It isn't.  I used the number in an earlier thread to note to some people that have a concept that the IBM-Apple agreement will unleash the flood gates of new phone sales.  It won't.   This in fact shows that such conversions are so minor to Apple that corps aren't worth pursuing as a HW issue.  The big win (or loss if you were hoping to have your boss pay for your phone) is that IBM brings a iOS BYOD competency that allows big companies to switch from BES (it wasn't the...
"Life is pain, princess. . . anyone who says differently is selling something."
By someone, you mean you.  And you represent 0.1% of mac buying public.  Not a market Apple has to service and maintain mac viability.
 I'm not forgetting, I think you're losing perspective of scale in today's market, and the true goal of BYOD.BTW, your numbers aren't based on fact.   There are not 10000 companies in the world the average size of ford.If there were, you just factored in a corporate employee base of 1.8Billion.  That's fantasy Fact: the Fortune 500 employs 24Million people.  that means 48,000 employees on average.  So ON AVERAGE, you need to take your number down by a factor of 4.   If you...
why do you see this 'serious' market share gain?  No really... why? Do you see a massive pent up demand for PC users wanting to use their XVGA 19" monitors, black ugly keyboards and 3 button mice with a new Mini... F500 Enterprise's won't buy a Mini - No competitive bidding.  Small businesses... maybe... but only those that see some headless reuse...  otherwise, the iMac is a better solution for them. Home consumers don't want a mini... they hated all the cables in the...
  wow.  10,000 phones, over 2 years.  15 iPhones a day.   major impact on the bottom line. /s it says more about blackberry than it does about apple.  This is the part about the IBM deal people don't understand.  It's not a big deal for selling hardware... it's a huge deal to sell iOS as an end delivery platform (vs. say, HTML5).  That's the big win as it makes Apple Sticky to the Enterprise.
all in all, this is the first step in building a 'ala carte' internet delivery system.   First work out the delivery and staging bugs.   Cable is paying for the content now, and has regional/municipal exclusivity rights for people living in those locales.  As those contracts are renegotiated, the need for having a cable contract to view what is currently on cable channels will be reduced, and you'll pay with your AppleID on a per view basis (likely a rental/season pass...
Actually, you're stealing your friends identity.
no.  because the other conditions that are happening in real time [the 3 cars pinning you in, stuff in the road, hydroplaning water] override any light software.   And your solution only works if ALL cars are talking to the central server (typically, until a majority of something is centrally controlled, the uncontrolled cause more issues because they are unpredictable) I think the best solution is crowdsourcing the 'flow' of traffic around you.  It's what your brain is...
