When I said "not excluding just your own PC" I meant that the server software could just run on your PC, so you won't lose connectivity when you have no Internet, but will sync data (if you like) when it can. It would be like having your own cloud just for you, hosted by you, joining the bigger cloud at its convenience.

Of course - you can have a small-footprint OS without the annoyances of other software LOADING. Your OS can start in 5 seconds. You'll rule the world. You can run everything in the cloud nowadays, and on your own personal cloud, too, like Bibud are trying to do, just more socially. I wouldn't say I needed my audio/video players, my torrent downloaders, my skype, my anything else when that thing is finished. It's just all on a cloud, running wherever you want it to run (not excluding just your own PC). And with the introduction of WebGL, games are moving to the browser. You don't have to have a cloud, but it's there if you want it.

Comment 21 Mbps (Score 1) 132

Let's not forget, HSDPA (normal) which is what I get with T-Mobile at the moment was supposed to have "up to" 7.2 Mbps. The most I've ever got out of it (even being in a city) is 2 Mbps.

I wouldn't rely on that being at all accurate, T-Mobile isn't too good with that sort of thing.

Comment G2 (Score 1) 132

I've already GOT a G2. It didn't look like that, nor was it very good.

This is mighty confusing. For clarification:
T-Mobile G1 = HTC Dream
T-Mobile G2 Touch = HTC Hero
T-Mobile G2 = HTC Vision (maybe)

Why on earth they had to make ANOTHER G2 is confusing. Their track record isn't exactly great, you know.

Owch! If I ever go to the USA, I'm turning that right off!

I find touchscreens hard to type on personally, and find keyboards that bit better. I'm not sure I'd take a tablet seriously, I can't vouch for many people in terms of that. But one thing that bites me is some are locked down (and thus defective and not kind to the user, after all it's theirs) by design.

1) It's not created a space all on its own. It's just another of many.

2) Tablets are a fad. People can't type nearly as fast as with a keyboard. I still can't take them seriously.

3) Netbooks ftw. Laptops ft(even better)w

I never said refuse to use a timesheet. I'd bring the issue up to management until they fixed it though. Cross-platform and cross-browser compatibility is one thing that almost everyone has got now, and something that shouldn't be overlooked, especially if it sticks you to one OS, one you wouldn't use even if a bear threatened you.
