Re: Wow, that certified software has really had to prove itself.

That isn't due diligence... it's a compliance box ticking exercise, so that when things go tits-up the guys on the receiving end can say "not my fault... I followed the procedure".

Re: Due diligence?

If due diligence is 2 hours of filling a form in... what does that say about the use diligence carried out in the Autonomy acquisition.

Could be useful

I have used software on my Nokia N95 to turn it into a wifi hotspot and then surf the net on my laptop while on a train - very useful. I can see this being done in hotels and other places where the wifi costs are ridiculously hi (a colleague mentioned GBP15 per day in a London hotel).

Can be useful if you need to connect a laptop and don't have a hotspot nearby.
