IT Analysis - iPhone, YouTube, We Manage
Information technology now plays such a large part in people's lives that its emotional impact in the workplace has drifted through a feeling of imposition and indifference and arrived at one of desire. Recently thousands queued to be the first to receive a new Apple iPhone, with Apple claiming over a million sales in the first three days. As well as device appeal creating populist swings in favour and fashion, a similar effect is occurring with online content and services.
