Securing and Delivering Business Data on the iPhone

No one can doubt the success of Apple's iPhone, as it's now sold in over 70 countries and to date has well over 13 million units in use. I have been keeping a close watch and I'm sure that each one of us can say that they have seen one in use by a friend, neighbor and even a passerby in the street. It is my opinion that the success story has happened not just because the iPhone is a great device, but it is the all-around user experience that it creates which makes it so compelling! With the iPhone more than earning its place in the consumer market, it is now being adopted by corporations. So the next time you see the hottest device around, it may be in the hands of colleagues or competitors, giving them the edge over you! This adoption is being driven by such factors as the multitude of general applications available via Apple's iTunes AppStore. But let's ask ourse... (more)

UK Launch of iPhone3G S Goes Well

This morning I got to the Apple Store in London's Regents Street at 07:10am, to be greeted with a line of over 50 iPhone addicts already eager & waiting. As the clock ticked steadily towards 0745am more joined the throng in high spirits, making the line go around the corner. OK the line was not as long as the last few times, but still reasonable. Soon after, I was joined by Press & Camera crews all ready to record the launch story. Then at  0750am the doors were opened to applause & cheers from the waiting Genius & Store staff and the line streamed in. About 10 minutes later the first happy iPhone 3G S owner emerged...
