Re: Data entry on the Psion Organiser

I LONGED for Psions, adored my Apple eMate (newton OS, netbook formfactor, built in handle... it ROCKS -- yeah, still works!), went through TWO clie's -- man were those great -- and when Apple introduced the iPad instead of eMate2, bought my first netbook, the 7" eee.

Currently, I do a ton of work on my iPad mini with external bluetooth keyboard: Teamviewer allows me to connect to my 27" iMac and drive it as if I were sitting right there, but from the comfort of a local coffeeshop where I can oggle coeds. Still wish there was a better integrated system, however: all the keyboard addons make the mini too bulky.

Lord, those Psions were gorgeous, though.

Thumb Down

More Secure?

Not if Google is going to persist in its stupid insistence that a "master password"-type option is not necessary. Their position is "if someone is at your computer, you're already compromised;" this is inane on its face and truly stupid when you think about it for even a moment. Fine, they're at my computer: let's make it a WEE bit harder to get to ALL my stored passwords, shall we?

Come on, Google, at least offer the OPTION.
