I work for a military organization that shall remain nameless. We are the technology geeks of the Pentagon's massive structure. For a number of years....Blackberrys have been the primary toy of Pentagon players. For those in the know.....Blackberry kinda hit it's peak maybe four years ago. It's just not the "toy" that it used to be.
So there's been this effort to bring I-Phones and I-Pads into the inner circle of the Pentagon. There's a test phase underway. A handful of folks have the new "toys". I sat and talked to one of the folks who is kinda within the circle and can see all the planning efforts of this.
So I came to this question yesterday with him. When I-Phones finally do arrive....will there be this sudden creation of "apps" and an entire military division of geeky guy working somewhere in the DC region making "apps" on a weekly basis. My associate kinda smiled and nodded.
You can imagine this whole creation of a massive new structure.....just to make the generals happy....making various apps.
If I were to stay around here for another five years....I'd probably have an I-Pad and doing most of my daily work off of that....with forty or fifty various apps. I'm not saying this is all positive....but it's the trend of things in life.
