5 Ways to Celebrate Labor Day in Today’s BYOD World

HP Blogger Nancy Lichtle commented on a recent post of mine about Bringing your own device (BYOD) to configure your own ecosystem. In this post, I highlight the fact that BYOD as a concept has existed over the years in the form of PYOD, UYOE, SYOW, EYOH. Lichtle, in her comment, adds a new acronym to this list -- POYD -- Power Off Your Device. She calls out the need to recharge our personal batteries when we are on vacation. Lichtle’s observation brings it home for me as Labor Day approaches in some parts of the world.

Bring your own Device (BYOD) to Configure your own Ecosystem (CYOE)

ZDNet blogger Joe McKendrick writes about a cash strapped state agency requiring employees to use their own smart phones without reimbursing them. Red flags went up in my mind as I read about it – especially the part about employees not being reimbursed. However, upon careful reflection, I realized that this is a pattern that has evolved over the years and such steps are a long time coming. With the explosion of devices and data and practical concerns about security, we are giving more importance to the concept of bringing your own device than we did to similar concepts in the past.
