Bring Your Own Vasectomy (BYOV) is unintended consequence of BYOD

One senior executive has changed his mind on the introduction of a corporate BYOD scheme after a BYOD faux pas.

On gathering his team into a conference room, only to find the presentation system not working, he decided to use his laptop. What could be easier? Plug and play.

During the presentation assorted email headers appeared on screen. These included “Hi dad I got to college on time” and “Meeting reminder with Dave at 5pm.” These snippets were hardly noticed, but “appointment confirmed for your vasectomy” was a snippet imprinted on a few minds.

Downtime thinks men should have the balls to talk about these issues in public.
