Third Most-Commented Post of Year: Not in this office with that iPhone you don't!

I will let you in on a little secret. When ZDNet was spun off from Ziff-Davis seven years ago and became a part of CNET, (some of you still haven't gotten the news) the overarching thinking was that CNET would concentrate on consumer tech devices and news, and ZDNet would largely dwell on enterprise news and tech.

Although this template isn't as set in stone as it was, I often find myself exercising the sensitivies about how VoIP, mobile and other technologies we care about impact the enterprise.

That's one reason why I decided to write the post, Seven reasons why iPhone's not fit for prime enterprise time. I got the idea for this after reading a post citing research firm Gartner's reasons why enterprise users probably should not invest in iPhones for enterprise use.

Chords were struck on both sides of the issue. And when we strike chords here, comments will follow. Enough of them, in this case, to make this post our third-most commented-upon this year.

Still true, still true.
