Here's a partnership you may not have seen coming, Apple is teaming up with IBM.

The two companies were once rivals during the personal computer wars. They're partnering up to create more than 100 new apps for iPhones and iPads.

The deal will also target business clients with Apple and IBM selling iPhones and iPads preloaded with industry-specific apps. Those devices will be available this fall, but only for business clients through IBM representatives.
