-Upper management can't figure out how to use a PC.
-Upper management does not want to use the IT selected Blackberrys
Suddenly, BYOD is a flood.
I think it is more of a flood among tech writers than it is in most businesses. I think that the UK info about new young employees NOT expecting to use their own devices is correct. I expect that most people expect to be given what they will use at work.
Yes, there will always be a few trendsetters out at the edge, using their own equipment rather than the company provided stuff, and yes execs aren't smart enough to figure out PCs so they need to use iPads, but honestly, who really cares about them anyway. They get what they want, but not everything they want is good for the business, and trickle down doesn't work any better in the workplace than it does in economics.
BYOD is a buzz word for tech writers, but I don't see any real trend towards BYOD in the real world.
