Re: To all the wireless carriers...
It's not a 200GB plan. It's a plan with an undocumented limit. This week they may kick people off at 200GB. Perhaps next week it will be 100GB. Who knows what the limit really is?

Surely they do. How do you think some of the cloud printer services work?
Google Cloud Print is a new technology that connects your printers to the web. Using Google Cloud Print, you can make your home and work printers available to you and anyone you choose, from the applications you use every day. Google Cloud Print works on your phone, tablet, Chromebook, PC, and any other web-connected device you want to print from.
Some of the utilities are already available for other operating systems:

The holy grail would be to run pre-compiled applications and translated on the fly without having to recompile them. This would be similar to MacOS when it first came to PowerPC (from 68k) and some VAX code on Alpha (via a translation utility).
I had an application that I compiled on a Vax in the late '80s and ran until 2013, switching from Vax to Alpha and upgraded OS releases, without ever recompiling it. For the last 17 years I ran it, I didn't even have a license to the compiler for the language it was originally written in (Fortran).
Our Linux friends did NOT get their systems patched before the bash exploits were in the wild. Some vendors still have not updated their appliances, storage servers, etc. And how right were they? We've patched and you're good to go! Oh wait. Patch again. You're good to go! Oh wait, let's try again.
I be stupid to defend Windows as being more secure than Linux but Linux isn't perfect either.
