I believe I have written before about how much I love my Macbook. Purchased in 2008 as an ordination gift to myself, it is the gift that keeps on giving. I use it everyday at the office and a lot at home (though the iPad I got but never wanted has taken over some of the general home use). For awhile now I have been wondering if there is a way for small businesses and non-profits to utilize the services of Apple, which I find to be more reliable, consistent, and innovative. (Can you imagine Apple and the URJ teaming up and creating software for synagogues that is uniform, cloud based, secure, and compatible for all machines?) It seems that Apple is thinking the same thing.
They recently launched JointVenture. I’m not certain that it is exactly the best option for non-profits, especially with the somewhat hefty price tag, however I think there is a shift happening and I find it fascinating. What are your thoughts?
