Steve Jobs never enjoyed selling to enterprises, but they've nonetheless begun embracing Apple (AAPL) hardware in recent years (I, II), partly thanks to IT's "bring your own device" trend. Corporate adoption of Macs, iPhones, and iPads might accelerate further with Tim Cook at the helm; Cook is said to be more comfortable than Jobs with interacting with CIOs, and taking corporate needs into account.

    Let's hope Apple doesn't try to be like Microsoft and end up suffering the same fate. I say, if it ain't broken, don't fix it.

    No way. Too much legacy from decades of MSFT.

    The IT manager at our company has his iPad on his desk. The ability of Apple products to operate on Windows makes it a great opportunity for Apple user to bring "toys" to work.
