Apple’s McIntosh computers have been popular among small segments of business for years — primarily the graphics, advertising and marketing departments of small to large corporations. The recent huge successes brought by the iPod and more recently iPhone have exposed millions of people to Apple’s ease-of-use and just-works functionality and have subsequently driven the MacIntosh computers to the point where they hold an almost 10% market share of the desktop space. It was almost inevitable that we’d start to see them in the business space

I interviewed John C. Welch to talk about the popularity of these new MacIntosh computers in the business space.

  • How well does Apple and the Mac really play in business, and at what level, (SOHO/SMB/Big Enterprise).
  • Does the Mac work well for IT uses? Can you really run a network from or with a Mac as an IT person?
  • We’ve all heard the hype, both good and bad, but what’s the reality of a Mac? Is it more or less secure than Windows XP or Vista?
  • Can you actually have people on both working together without more pain than it’s worth?
  • How well does the Mac play with Facebook/MySpace/Amazon S3 et al?
