Remember that formal announcement of Lotus Notes Mail on the iPhone? Right, Apple's first big corporate iPhone push which the AP said would happen at LotusSphere? Not going to happen, at least not yet. An IBM spokesperson told ZDNet Australia, "It's not something that (is) ready to go out and market or launch." In other words, Jobs heard about IBM's plan to steal his February SDK-launch thunder and shut down the announcement right quick. The most absurd part of all this has to be an enterprise adoption comment made by the so-called analyst, Kevin McIsaac, at IBRS (I be arse?). He said, "I can't really imagine someone who's really hip and cool -- like an iPhone user -- wanting to use Lotus Notes." Since when do the personal desires of users and corporate IT policy have anything in common Kev?
