I work at IBM... I wonder if there's a new team being formed that I can sign up to join on W3...

Edit: Also, is that IBM's campus or Apple's? It reminds me of IBM's RTP campus.

Seems like it's the other way around to me.

Apple needs IBM to get into the enterprise market, to further grow iPad and iPhone sales, and provide Cloud solutions and services.

Next months news....

Front page macrumours.

Apple says Siri has requested a transgender op. Says she doesn't feel she is a lady (bill burr voice).

Apple says the op will go ahead as it respects all LGBT. Siri will under go a period of adjustment and preparation and from now on would like to be called Watson.


....

And on forums users report Siri I mean Watson actually knows what the **** your talking about.

Two arrogant companies working together. Won't last long. They will be at each others throats within 6 months. FAIL

I thought he came to apple from compaq.

Edit: we're both right. He spent 12 years at IBM before a short stint at compaq before apple.

Don't spoil the joke

Anyway Siri was designed to be a lady. The designer was going to name his daughter that but they had a boy.

"..kindred spirits.." HAAAAAAAA LMAO! This move seems so un-apple to me. Steve Jobs was a control freek and Apple has the money to go it alone. WTH would they partner, not to mention with IBM????

For those wondering if IBM is still relevant, they're #23 on the Fortune 500 (with annual sales of ~$100B) which is higher than Microsoft or Google, and their market cap is $190B. It's amazing to me how many people think relevance in tech is selling shiny gadgets.

Good bye Google!
I'm no fan of googles business model and don't use any of their services except search but they do provide excellent services to customers and are researching some very cool projects that are good for mankind. Wishing them to go out of business is ridiculous. Also, how exactly do you want to see apple and Microsoft go into business together when they are direct competitors?

oh no not Big Blue again ...

wait you mean the incremental updates

and the bait and switch stock maneuvers

aren't enough to bump profit and shareholder value ?

no one in enterprise cares about iWatches or Consumer Toys

those that do already are saturated with iProducts

bad move after bad move after bad move
