Apple iPhone 7: Are You F#$king Kidding Me?
Let me get right to the point. The new iPhone 7 is a fantastic, awesome,
incredible, spectacular iteration of the iPhone 6. Great processor (a
quad-core, 64-bit A10 Fusion), outstanding rear-facing camera (12 MP), a new
wireless chip (W1) to facilitate Bluetooth connectivity, iOS 10, a
pressure-sensitive home button, and taptic feedback. Oh, yeah, there’s one

on the market during the time required for Samsung to disgorge its profits.
Apple says it's really entitled to damages of at least $685 million.

This is the first in a series of five initial articles, in which I'm going to
put my thoughts and findings on the subject of Enteprise Mobility. For this
article I've decided to tackle the Economy, which is effecting us all in
various degrees, according to your geographic location.
