Apple and IBM Announce Partnership To Bring iOS + Cloud Services To Enterprises

Wovel Re:Sweet (126 comments)

That is likely because Apple addressed it more than 5 years ago. The enterprise App store does precisely that and you have been able to restrict Apple App store installation for about the same amount of time....

Apple and IBM Announce Partnership To Bring iOS + Cloud Services To Enterprises

Wovel Re:Sweet (126 comments)

Your talking about people that were let go? Why on earth do you care if they have to be mailed in if no one is using them (at least for a time)? I agree the management tool should be able to do it, but you made it sound like you had some reason for active users to be sending in their devices. You clearly do not.

Apple and IBM Announce Partnership To Bring iOS + Cloud Services To Enterprises

Wovel Re:Sweet (126 comments)

What are you talking about? That is not a requirement of iOS7 or any other version. You can now and always have been able to turn of find my iPhone from the device. Apple has some problems for enterprise support, but yours is not one of them...

Google To Take On Apple's CarPlay

Wovel Re:Consumer = LOSE (126 comments)

Entirely possible BMW did not stick to the standard. If they did it would work. My 5s works on a pioneer deck with the 30 pin connector that is 10 or 12 years old.

Google To Take On Apple's CarPlay

Wovel Re:apple and google are missing the point. (126 comments)

WTF is with all this generation naming crap. It is silly. When all we could come up with was Generation X we should have stopped.Now we have Millenials. WTF is a Millenial? The age range (according to Wikipedia) is people around 13 to 35 (Other sites place the range as 22-32 which seems a lot more reasonable). How does that mean anything? They have nothing at all in common. The GP post referred to Millennial and Generation Y as two different things. Everywhere else says they are the same thing. Which is it?

I somehow ended up in X. I have kids in Y, Z and whatever comes next. I was 6 when Y started and I did not have any kids until I was 22. Kids born when I was 6 have little in common with my son. People making all these presumptions about people based on these silly generation labels is ridiculous.

Just because the goofy GP can't pay his bills and prefers public transportation is an anecdote not a trend.

Wovel Re:Microconsole? (147 comments)

Seems much improved in 8. Been playing with it for a while and the more consistent fonts make the flat interface much better.The ios 8 beta feels much more polished than ios 7.1.1

Apple WWDC 2014: Tim Cook Unveils Yosemite

Wovel Re:Compareatively unspectacular, but not bad. (411 comments)

Only if you have it run as an app instead of in the browser. I am not sure why they elected to make the sandboxed browser less powerful. The only thing less clear is why you think that has anything at all to do with Apple contributing to FOSS.....

Wovel Re:And one more thing - NOT (411 comments)

Actually the desktop interface is using some similar style but is clearly moving away from the phone interface. No mention of that launchpad at all.

Apple WWDC 2014: Tim Cook Unveils Yosemite

Wovel Re:I think I'm something of a psychic (411 comments)

It probably is for iOS users since it allows direct access to the app filespace without copying. If services can do that via extensions (maybe they can, hard to say), then that advantage won't last long. iCloud Drive is cheaper than DropBox and 3.99 a month for 200GB is pretty good.

There, now they don't have to.

Wovel Re:Off-topic Maybe (411 comments)

This is silly. I am running iOS 8 beta on an iPad 2 and it has not crippled anything. We have 2 iPhone 4 devices here both running 7 without issue. Your friends are cooky.

Where is the 4 on sale? 8 runs on the 4s which is still on sale. I believe the 4s is the oldest model sold anywhere on this planet. Perhaps you checked Jupiter?

Wovel Re:Off-topic Maybe (411 comments)

It is not the number one platform for developers. At best it is 3rd after Windows (desktop) and iOS. Marketshare is not all it's cracked up to be. There is still very little money in Android developing.

Wovel Re:Tired of one year release cycle (411 comments)

Why do you care? They aren't charging by release. If this were Microsoft where they charged by the release you would have a point. If this were Gogogle, where the new release had almost no chance of running on your current device, you might also have a point. This is Apple and therefore you have no point.
