Re: I'm unsurprised
I work for a large multi-national co, the problem I have with the supplied kit is that it's been bought in bulk as a one-siz-fits-all solution.
I'm a pretty mobile worker, traveling a lot so my heavy ass laptop with shitty battery is a major pain in the back.. and shoulders.
Any my piece of crap blackberry is just so old it's a joke. (and they've locked out tethering, so i end up spending £40 per month on hotel/train/airport wifi what i really dont need)
BYOD is one way to solve this, having a user focussed IT strategy would be better.
Also for our company, running google mail and web accessible intranet byod should be a lot easier to impliment. We still need access to one drive via vpn.. but I assime that'll move to a google drive -type-system at some point.
