TO BRING YOUR OWN DEVICE doesn't mean that it will work on the desk (or in the quiet corner) where you place it. That's something a lot of IT managers try to articulate to their companies and it's something that emerged during the first #edchatie session in Ireland.
I'm putting a graphic illustration in this post that happens to capture many facets of BYOD as it affects me. The biggest thing I notice is that most of the newest, shiniest devices (I'm talking to you, iOS) use a lot more bandwidth than any previous stable of handheld devices. Knowing that, a lot of common access points (public wifi, my campus internet access) often retaliate by blocking services or ports that used to be wide open. In my case, that means my Kindle won't sync, my Calibre newsfeeds won't refresh, my FTP access is gone and sending mail is problematic.
All these service standards should be expected in places where BYOD is fostered.
