From someone who did IT support back in the mid 1980s, it is amusing to hear that bringing your own device has been elevated to a "trend." Back in the days of DOS, we all had to contend with end users bringing in their own gear. Of course, the gear cost five large and didn't connect to the corporate network (there wasn't any back then other than for the mainframes).
