As twitnutttt mentioned, Dropbox works really well for syncing the PasswordSafe file between multiple computers, though I'd be reluctant to connect to my personal Dropbox account from a work computer (actually at my current job I *can't*). There's a PasswordSafe (& PasswordSafe Sync) app for Android which works great. On my ipad I use an app called pwSafe which also works with my PasswordSafe file.

Like a good Slashdotter, I originally posted without reading the article, but then went back and read the details.
Sounds like this applies to their "unlimited" plan which was not clear that they'd *eventually* throttle that plan, too.

FTA: "T-Mobile failed to adequately inform its unlimited data plan customers that, under a “Top 3 Percent Policy,” their data would be slowed at times if they used more than 17 gigabytes in a given month, the FCC said. It said the company had agreed to update its disclosures to better explain who may be affected."

I've been a T-mobile customer for several years, and I thought it was pretty obvious that they'd throttle the data when you reached your plan's threshold. Did they, at some point, market the plans as "unlimited data at 4G speeds"? Or are certain customers being deliberately obtuse?

Beats the heck out of getting cut off completely, or worse - getting charged a zillion bucks for data overages.

The lockdown wasn't put into place after the bombings. It was enacted after the murder of a security guard, robbery, carjacking, a shootout with ~200 rounds of ammo, one of the suspects blowing himself up, and the other escaping into the neighborhood with who-knows-what for intentions or weapons.

That, combined with the lockdown happening on a Friday (hey, 'free' day off of work!), and it doesn't shock me that people were willing to comply for a day.
