Quite interesting, expect for the ad between EVERY SINGLE PAGE.

I though it was poorly executed and there were several errors and subjective judgements throughout.

Just goes to show you how foreign Mac is in the Workplace.
These are baby steps, but steps in the right direction. The article more or less admitted that their experts are self-taught and may not necessarily know how to do this the right way.
It's nice to see that some shops are now open to the idea, but they are still creative content places (in this case advertising). When you see a Bank go Mac, that's when you have true corporate acceptance.

Look guys, hate to break it to you but there were no Macs on the Enterprise. Just that annoying She-nerd computer that sounded a lot like Gene Rodenberry's wife.

One big problem in getting Macs accepted into the workplace is that the Mac platform lacks the million existing idiotic little B2B "solutions" that Windows has.
Executives have spent years saying "We *need* feature X. You can't manage an enterprise desktop without feature Y." So they created this industry of business b2b software with very specific solutions to address the self-inflicted FUD of luddite PHBs.
In many cases they were right, but times have changed, and hardware and operating systems and just about *everything* in IT has changed dramatically all around, for the better.
Explaining this to that executive though seems self defeating; telling them they don't need Feature X or Feature Y and they hear: INFERIOR PRODUCT. :eek:
