That's why I don't use GMail and most of their other services...

Currently I do inventory control and data entry for a group of tile warehouses. And I'm sure that has something to do with...?

Lots of companies take their security seriously. That means you can't bring in an outside laptop and connect to the network. And if you happen to be in an area with spotty cell service or in an interior conference room, you have no internet.

I think the Google notebook is potentially a great thing for consumers and will continue the trend toward, "internet appliances", but it really does seem like Google is fighting the last war (the war against MS) and not the future war that Apple is killing people in.

At the end of the day though, it is still a client/server business model and has all the drawbacks that the model has always had.

Man, it sounds like having a laptop or a cell phone is a horrible experience. How does anyone ever manage?!?! ;p

Not especially. But Canada doesn't really want me either.

Is this related to a criminal record? Are you even allowed to cross the border?
