Re: Apples and IBM Bluemix devs don't mix
That's exactly the point. Bluemix is part of IBM PaaS strategy. With the acquisition of SoftLayer as part of IaaS and SmartCloudNotes, etc. at SaaS level, IBM is going to progress further in cloud-based enterprise application area. I do not see much overlap/conflict with Apple in personal electronics segment.

Apples and IBM Bluemix devs don't mix
When is a good time for IBM to avoid the omnipresence of Apple in the consumer market? I don't know of one. Besides, it's addressing a different class of developers, those inside the enterprise thinking of implementing new applications for the cloud.

Two way street?
Charlie, Will IBM let developers contribute Boilerplates back to the platform? IOW, does it visualize this as a sort of "app store" model?

The timing of this announcement is unfortunate -- very interesting stuff, likely totally drowned out by the WWDC.

We're seeing new titles in this digital revolution, new responsibilities, new business models, and major shifts in technology spending.
