  • GMail on iOS
  • IBM and the cost of Macs
    • Initial Article on cost savings
    • IBM sees Macs costing less to operate than PCs
    • yes, the IBM research is mostly thought the lens of tech support costs, but for the consumer I see that equate to ease of use, more reliability, and longer life span. If IBM sees 5% of Mac users needing support but 40% of PC that translates to a more reliable and enjoyable home computing experince. And if companie slike IBM are addig macOS and iOS devices to their workforce, having students use Macs and iOS devices further prepares them for the future.


Thank you to those who attended!
