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.

Scott Wilkinson writes, "Google's Blogger is going through a major revamp, called Blogger Beta, with lots of nifty new graphical layout features and pesky bugs to annoy the users.

symbolset writes to say that "Intel is expecting to lay off 10% of their workforce in a move to become more competitive against rival AMD. From the article: 'The Santa Clara, Calif.-based chipmaker, having suffered several financially disappointing quarters, launched an internal analysis in April to find ways to increase its efficiency. [CEO Paul] Otellini is scheduled to announce the results of the analysis, including the layoff, on Tuesday after the stock market closes, sources familiar with the plans said. Intel has about 100,000 employees worldwide, so the cut could be as high as 10 percent of the company's staff.'
