HP Device as a Service for Apple

Share:
I never ran out to buy the newest Apple products but I did enjoy hearing Steve Jobs give a presentation. One of my favorite talks he gave was to the Cupertino City Council about his proposal for the new Apple Campus on June 7, 2011, at the Cupertino Community Hall.


He talks about idolizing William "Bill" Redington Hewlett and David "Dave" Packard, who started Hewlett-Packard, known today as HP. Bill Hewlett gave him a summer job at HP. Years later, as HP was downsizing, he brought the property HP was selling for Apple.

And now, full circle, HP recently expanded it's Device as a Service (DaaS) to now offer Apple devices such as: iPhone, iPad, iPod, and Mac.
