"???It???s more driven by those senior people who get very excited by some of the gadgets in their personal life and this is how they enter the corporate world,??? Hoffman said."
BYOD is being driven by execs who want their Apple gear because its trendy, but IT isn't listening, because IT wants conformity of hardware. IT doesn't want to support many platforms. They don't want Blackberry and iPhone/iPad and Android. When IT was in charge, everyone got Blackberrys. Now, with BB falling out of fashion, and I mean exactly that, fashion, the top brass want the gear they like, which isn't a PC they don't need.
People who work for a living need PCs. All those Gen Z people are entering the workforce at the work-for-a-living level, not at the upper management (do nothing) level. One level controls the $$, and one level does the work.
PCs aren't failing at work, they are failing at home, where the tablet excels.
Post-PC world my @$$.
