  • Is Apple gearing up to enter the enterprise?

    Posted June 11, 2009 - 8:26 pm

    After years of ignoring the needs of the enterprise, Apple seems to be making a concerted push into the business world.

Okay, so CEO Steve Jobs was still on medical leave, leaving the headlining to an untucked Phil Schiller, Apple's senior vice president of marketing and long-time Jobs foil. But there was a pretty good info download on the upcoming Snow Leopard operating system alone to keep me interested.
