AT&T works quite well in Las Vegas where I live. I really do not travel that often so for my needs it works perfectly. That being said I don't agree with the practices of these carriers, but AT&T certainly is not the only one trying to pull stunts like this.
How many home burglars know how to scan the memory contents of the computer for the information necessary to get the password?
Especially considering dropbox is in the cloud. I have a Truecrypt container in dropbox but i always unmount it when not in use otherwise i can't really open it somewhere else and preserve the integrity.
Truecrypt works really nicely with dropbox, even if an attacker gets your Truecrypt file, they would still need the password to get the files inside of it.
Of course they got rid of him! How dare the poorer class schools be able to progress!
Because hes not an anonymous coward....
