Office on Apple Phone
Last week Tarkan Maner, the CEO of Wyse Technology, came by the well-lit Redmond
magazine offices for a sit-down. Very cool, very smart, and utterly outspoken
-- just the kind of exec I like. After taking about Wyse's approach to client
virtualization, Tarkan showed me how Wyse software can present a virtual PC
desktop on an Apple iPhone. Slick.
Microsoft is also looking this way and promises now to make its new Web-based
Office apps available
on the iPhone.
Seems to me the Wyse approach is harder; it's showing and manipulating the
actual Windows desktop. Microsoft, it seems to me, is simply displaying its
Web apps on a Web-ready iPhone.
