BANGKOK, Thailand (CNN) -- "Why can't I do this at home?"
Bringing Skype to the workplace is just one way companies are harnessing tech that has previously been used just for fun.
Employees in the office used to ponder this question about corporate technology not easily available to consumers.

, now that we have a share in pretty much every bank in America (to the tune of $1,785.71per taxpayer), why are we still paying ATM fees? So many banks still aren't in tune with the reality of the market - surly help, pens that don't work at the counter, ridiculous end-of-year bonuses - even spending millions of dollars to name sports arenas; we have "Citi Field" here in NY - at $20 mil or so each year!… Continue
