My email exchange with Steve Jobs

On a whim I decided to email Steve Jobs last night about an ongoing issue we’ve been having among our clients at Templeton.

I was shocked to see a reply a few minutes later.

Stay tuned.

Mr. Jobs,

I own a Macintosh support and consulting firm here in NYC.

For the past 13 years, we’ve been providing Mac support and consulting services to companies of all sizes including several Fortune 500 firms.

Over the years we have struggled with finding a robust and reliable calendar/contact system that would serve our clients.

Nothing available on the Mac platform seems to be adequate.

With the demise of NOW Software, it appears as though our options have become even more limited.

I have been hearing rumblings about Apple making a significant push in the Business area and that an Enterprise-class contact and calendar solution via OSX Server could be part of that initiative.

Could you shed any light on this situation?

Thank you for your time and consideration.
