90's Linux called, it wants its repository back. Apple only introduced the age old repo-model into proprietary software. That is not innovative, that is about friggin time.

There is nothing magical about apps. The vast majority are fairly useless toys. The few that are productivity apps, are useful in a mobile setting, but a far cry from the features a full fledged application carries.

The App store has nothing to do with BYOD. If you can do your job on the tiny screen and with the relatively toy-esque apps on your iPhone, your job doesn't amount to much.

Anyone notice that the author of this piece is Ron Miller ? He does, of course, already know about Linux repositories...

based on my own experience with customers i think this based on the presentation. one of my customers reveled how easy it was to down load apps with ubuntu. the underlying technology shouldn't really matter to the user, but making it easier to use certainly does.

greetings, eMBee.
