Google docs had a pretty crippling bug while I was using Google docs to be interviewed by Google. The bug was really bad, and it and a few other bugs have made me think that most of Google's products deserve to keep their eternal beta status. I guess waaay more security vulnerabilities have probably been found in MS Office than in google docs, but there are some inherent security vulnerabilities in keeping your data on a remote server.

I was just thinking about buying an iPod shuffle. Good thing I read this article that reminds me that I have to use the headphones that come with it, and I don't like those headphones nearly as much as I like my headphones. Hmm, I could probably splice the cable without tooo much trouble.

If you'd be happier working somewhere else, then leave. Unless owning 10% of the company is going to make it much more interesting or enjoyable for you to continue working there, it sounds like nothing has changed. I'm assuming that either way you'll have enough money to do the things you want to do, and the main difference is not that.

Well obviously they wouldn't object to getting it for free, but that doesn't mean that they would be willing to pay anything for it. To anyone who reads slashdot, it must be difficult to imagine not wanting broadband. Maybe it's mostly old people? They'll be gone eventually, and then that statistic will change.
