Adult apps are finally coming to the iPhone thanks to parental controls. This almost-safe-for-work image is among the cleanest on the new app.  (Source: Gizmodo)

You know businesses that give their employees iPhones? Well I work in the IT department for one of those companies and it is a nightmare to operate - I have to key in the same e-mail address 6 times (before the days of cut & paste) per account and there were 24 accounts to configure. There is no way of deploying settings or software out to all the company phones (that is a pretty big flaw) - if we buy iPhone software I can't give it to all staff without setting them up each an iTunes account and then telling them what to buy, if I sync it on there at my end, as soon as they connect it to their PC it erases and resyncs.

The 'push' capability is a joke and just remains connected to the server and never properly drops the link, meaning that our mail server which only likes 1 connection at a time per mailbox won't allow Outlook on the laptops to connect simultaneously and throws an error. The iPhone won't even tell you that it's still connected, you just have to guess.

I don't even need to really say much about the security (or complete lack of it).

I'm not denying it has a good media player (albeit with only MP4 videos) and some amazing games but that purely makes it a great consumer phone, a toy, if you will. As a business tool it is useless and claiming it is anything otherwise will get you laughed out of the room by people in the know...
