I travel around the world regularly, including China, and I use my GMail account in nearly every country I go to.
GMail has never ever notified me that my account was being accessed from a foreign IP.
Are you sure they didn't ask you to enter in your user name and password as well.

There is shared responsiblity.
Some responsibility also lies with the users.
VMware View is an enterprise product, not used by home users.
All enterprises should thoroughly test any patches they deploy, this would be picked up instantly.
More of an annoyance than an issue really.

Unfortunately Australia's blacklist will not be published either and one of the concerns is it expanding from blocking child pornography to other categories. There have already been indications by right wing conservatives that they want to include things like gambling, and I'm sure ARIA (Australian RIAA) would like to block torrent sites. Of course it won't manage to block anything from anyone that wants to get around it, but it'll probably reduce Australia's internet to a crawl.
