Are they insane? that BYOD better not be any where near any nuke launcher systems or nuke cooling / control systems / also the same thing for any war ship control systems.

Also open internet is a risk / apples app store / phoning home that can't be turned off may not work in that setting.

but that re-trainable school is now a 2-4 year one that can cost 10-40K a year and they may not may not take transfer credits and even if you go back to the same school after a few year they may make retake stuff you took in the past as well.

Some college even have forced dorms with room mates at a high cost then renting on your own + high cost meal plans.

cable big fail of cable card helped kill it. satellite tuners as well dish and directv where working with M$ on usb tunes for windows pc and they did not come out.

Also there is satellite ci cards but dish / directv will push hard to NOT let people use them just give out a smart card to use with them.

If all else fails, lower your standards.
