Some forms of BYOD can be interpreted as a return to the Bad Old Days, not as an evolution.
Many forms of BYOD rely on virtual desktop infrastructure; Citrix and / or Terminal Services; or "the cloud". You remember, what you and I used to politely call the 'client - server' model (AKA 'Big iron and dumb terminals').
There's also the argument that rather than liberating the employee to use the tools he wants, BYOD a) shifts the cost of hardware to the employee, and b) increases the company's access to an employee's personal time.
That's why I asked for clarification. Thanks.
