Early last year, Apple licensed ActiveSync so that businesses could push their corporate Exchange e-mail messages to iPhones. Since the ActiveSync client is already embedded in the iPhone, adding ActiveSync to the Traveler product was a good way to enable push Notes e-mail to the iPhone, [Ed Brill, director of end-user messaging and collaboration for IBM Lotus software] said.
Good on IBM.
We only have one question -- hey, Google, if they above is true and ActiveSync client is just sitting there waiting, where's our push Gmail?
(Apologies to IBM for the tangent).
