    Until the iPhone supports enterprise wireless encryption/authentication protocols such as 802.1X and WPA Enterprise any business software written for it is useless.

    Except the moment the sales people that use "business software" leave their enterprise they end up using wifi at starbucks and howard johnson's road inn kinda blows that theory out of the water.

    This is big.

    Last week the SDK spelled the end of Palm.

    This week, this and more moves like this by apple will start RIM's decline.

    That's what VPN is for.

    Anyway my point was more towards not being able to access the wireless network at the office. Having to do all your business tasks over EDGE would be just too painful.

    The iPhone has just begun...

    This is a the first of its kind and there are many more to come. It seems as though they released it before it was complete. just to build a reputation in the phone business.

    I just used an iPhone on a cross-country trip. There is poor access west of Williams, AZ.

    It was "reasonable" 98% of the time.

    If I had a device with 4x the display size of an iPhone such as an Apple Tablet Not Nano, and with copy and paste capability, and a third pane of keyboard with symbology, and buttons to go forward and backward characters while editing, I could have replaced my Powerbook.

    If it had 802.16 Wimax (or IBM's new microwave protocol) and access to such a network with 80% the coverage of ATT's awesome EDGE (built for CIA/NSA), then I could have received, marked up, and resent attachments to my co-workers with aplumb too.

    EDGE is ever present in this country (and others). It is slightly faster than dial-up on its best days.

    I expect an office like suite on an iPhone like device (with larger/dual displays) next year. It has the capability to replace traditional "personal computers".

    Wimax is broadband on the run.

    That's not what this means. It means Salesforce wants their application to run on popular platforms. The CNN quote is asserting too much meaning in a comment from Apple that they can't get comment from Salesforce on.

    No doubt this is good for iPhone, and I hope we see more of this, but at this point I see it as a sign that Saleforce is acting defensively against any potential competitor by being widely cross platform-- not that those customers are planning to defect.
    Always enjoy your posts, Rocketman.

    Let's wait and see how this 700 MHz auction goes. I'm pretty excited about it.

    When will that auction be over?
    And where can we be updated on news of that and when it will end?
