Apple’s New TV: Deja Vu All Over Again

This article from Business Insider talks about CES 2010, which I remember like it was yesterday. Those Non-Apple tablets were a complete flop.

Will history repeat itself with a real Apple TV? The author seems to think so, and it’s hard to argue against him.

So what does this have to do with the enterprise? I’ve used a little 3rd generation Apple TV box to give Keynote presentations from my iPad and iPhone. It’s hard to do at first* because the current Apple TV doesn’t support enterprise-class WEP wifi security—but there are rumors that an update will fix that. For enterprises, think of Apple TV as a projector for meetings, training, etc., rather than a TV per se.

*–Once you realize you can use a 4G iPad’s cellular connection as an ad hoc wifi hotspot, you can use Apple TV even in a corporate environment.


iOS Security: No Jailbreaking 6.1?

According to iPodNN, a hacker claims iOS 6.1 is so secure it may not be jailbreak-able.

This is great news for iOS security and the enterprise. A non-jailbroken phone can’t have unapproved software installed and is therefore much less likely to have viruses and other enterprise-unfriendly software.
