What does the Apple/IBM partnership mean for the world of mobile?
On Tuesday, July 15th, at the end of trading, Apple and IBM announced a partnership to build iOS apps for businesses. I'm quite bullish on this move. Both companies have been languishing the past couple of years. IBM does not have a good reputation among ...
