iPhone push notification is more like a slow nudge

imageApparently to get push notification to work to an iPhone 3 app you first need to go via the apple cloud. This begs a whole lot of privacy issues as there is really no alternative system of doing this directly unlike other platforms (e.g.. Windows Mobile).

But what is also really interesting is that Apple only cares if the push notification take more than 48 hours…

Could you imagine getting a notification 48 hours late Sunday afternoon that the AC in your Server room has failed on Friday evening…

There is of course one exception to this and this is the Microsoft Exchange Active Sync client that is used for email push notification.
