Sutherland reports, “There is a higher incidence of iOS devices taking part in programs encouraging employees use their own devices at work.

  1. You know what is amazing here? For decades people bought the same computer they used at work at home. It didn’t really seem like there was any independent thought or evaluation process, they bought what the IT dept recommended.

    SUDDENLY, people seem to be able to discern a difference and make an intelligent thoughtful decision. I’m guessing the iPhone / iPod unlocked the door, and iPad walked right in.
