BYOD: Then & Now

User Rating:  / 0

Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) isn’t a new concept, it is something that IT managers contend with users since PC first started entering corporations in the early 1980s.

With shrinking IT budgets and affordability of IT devices, people are starting to buy their own devices regardless whether IT says they are supporting it or not. BYOD isn’t just about Compaq vs IBM or Windows vs Mac OS, it is much more. But thanks to modern technology like Mokafive, BYOD can be handled with maximum flexibility and minimum fuss.

Here’s a look at how BYOD might become if technology didn’t evolve to what it is today.

Introduced in the early 1980s and priced at US$3,590, the Compaq Portable was one of the first portable computers. At 12.5 Kg, this colossus is almost as heavy as 27 iPad Airs.

The late 1990s saw the arrival of iMac G3 with its standard 32 MB RAM and 4 GB harddisk, it takes 4 of these 17.2 kg machines to hold as many mp3s as the 31 gram iPod nano we know today.


What good is a computer without connection to the World Wide Web and emails? And without Wi-Fi connection (which was commercially available around the year 2000) everyone would have packed a portable Ethernet cable in their bags as well.

If you are a FootPrints user, you will know that it comes with a pretty good survey feature. However if you are surveying external customers (i.e customers who do not have access to your network) then you have to decide between exposing FootPrints to your external customers or not use the FootPrints survey feature.
