In IBM's future: Apple ease of use?
Nice turns of phrase and assessment of the relatoinship here, Doug. IBM Concert and IBM Project Catalyst probably are applications that Apple or independent Apple developers wouldn't have come up with. On the other hand, there may be a new generation of apps wiating to be born into the business world that combine more attributes of Apple's ease of use.

When Siri Met Watson
I can't wait for the movie version...In all seriousness this could be a match made in heaven if both companies play their cards right. My question really is one more about branding and market perception. i can see this deal being good for IBM but potentially damaging to the cool factor that Apple has cultivated. Is Apple jumping the shark here?
