iPhone best for business


As reported on cnbc.com, JD Powers have awarded the iPhone the prize as the best for business. Link here: http://www.cnbc.com/id/27575986

Read it once, then read it a 2nd time and look for the word "security". Don't see it? Me neither. Amazing!

It's merely question of time before the bad news hits the press about someone losing an iPhone that had critical personally identifiable information on it, with no way of wiping it, recovering the data or doing anything but waiting for bohica to hit. IMNSHO, that's when it's really going to hit the fan.

and thanks to my colleague, Chris de Herrera for passing these 2 links through to me on why the iPhone isn't going to be 'business ready' any time soon:

Reports are that these items are still not fixed.
