Do any of you remember when corporations bought the first PCs? They went to executive desktops, where they became expensive ($5000-6,000) desk art. Executives couldn't figure out how to use them, and they weren't connected to the mainframe. Staff who really needed PCs to make spreadsheets or to circumvent the typing pool had to wait a couple years for their equipment. Now, look at this 9/19/05 press release from Palm, Inc.:
"...up to 200 Schwan executives will be using smart-device technology to accelerate decision-making and better serve customers while away from the office....Schwan executives were so pleased with the solution, and believed the productivity increase was so obvious, a formal ROI analysis was not required."
What about all the non-executives who need to make better decisions? Link
