Apple Inc. is known for a consumer-first strategy that has reared years of must-have retail products, but the company made it clear at Wednesday’s product event that it is now targeting a whole new set of customers.

With the iPad Pro, a larger tablet with a screen that measures 12.9 inches diagonally, Apple has made its first major hardware push into the enterprise market with its mobile devices and pumped up a burgeoning attempt to overrun the enterprise market, where personal computers have long maintained a stronghold.

“Apple has made clear that it sees the enterprise as another opportunity,” said Pat Moorhead, principal analyst at Moor Insights & Strategy.

The push comes after six straight quarters of decelerating iPad sales, which the company has been trying to stem by encouraging more industry-specific uses for the tablet. Apple touts the iPad Pro as being faster than 80% of portable PCs shipped in the last 12 months, one of the reasons it sees vulnerability of PC dominance. PCs have been on the decline, with Gartner this summer predicting a 4.4% decline in shipments in 2015.

Why do we punish the victims of hacking?

2017-09-21 09:00:00 +0100

Hacks occur every 39 seconds, with 95% of them targeting governments, retailers and the tech industry. If the hackers are caught, they'll face prison time under the Computer Misuse Act. More often than not, the businesses who are victims of those attacks expose themselves to punishment of their own. The laws that determine the duty of protection owed to businesses and their customers is both vague and broad, making them question just how much protection...

Tech is for girls... and always has been!

2017-09-18 10:00:00 +0100

Today, it's hard to deny that the IT and tech industry is a male-dominated field. Women earn only 28%[1] of computer science degrees, while the quit rate for women in the high tech industry is 41%[2], twice as high as it is for men. These two statistics would suggest that perhaps women aren't just discouraged from entering the tech field, but may find it a challenging environment to work in both in terms of treatment and pay.
