So much for those "Apple isn't interested in the science/business/pro sector" theories. Behold, Mac at Work
, a new promotional site from Apple with information, case studies, online seminars and real world event listings for just about every interest and sector besides
consumers. Just look at the first section, Science, with a brief case example of UC Irvine's "HIPerWall
", a 200-megapixel (yes, 200) display built from fifty 30-inch Apple Cinema Displays driven by twenty-five PowerMac G5s (I wonder if their interns sneak in at night to load up World of Warcraft). Other notable case studies include an OB-GYN whose office is 100% Mac OS X, a business learning to use podcasts and even a section just for the IT Pros (though I'm not sure if that section is entirely new).
It's nice to see Apple pimping their products to people who are in the market for more than just an iPod. Here's hoping they deliver the Intel-based pro goods (Mac Pros, Xserves) in August to really get the ball rolling on this push into the professional world of computing.
