Hey guys, thanks for the responses. To the BES admins - I did not mean the BES guys are "corporate dick", perhaps a better choice of words would be in order. If someone wants to investigate you or poke around, the BES guys would end up with the chore list I am sure. No disrespect intended.
Anyway - my concern was mostly academic. It's very easy for me to keep my home network separated and aside from tunneling (which I can control when it's on or off), I feel pretty comfortable that there is little risk - but having an always on connection between my network and work - well - that raises some concerns. We are always so busy protecting the company data that we may overlook our own.
On a humorous note, it's interesting to contemplate someone trying to locate me and logging my activities around 10:30 AM to see that I am on wsj.com or usatoday reading the paper and dropping the kids at the pool
With GPS they could probably figure out what stall I am in.
