Telecommuting not all it's cracked up to be


For the 34 million U.S. workers who occasionally telecommute, I have this advice -- stop.

A company that sells phone systems so that your work phone can be connected to your home in a "virtual office" recently asked me if I wanted to write about the new technology they sell that makes employees feel as if they're in the office when sitting at their kitchen table.

My first question was, "Is that what people want, to feel like they're in the office at home?"
