I'm on the M6, just near Brum, accessing the RB site on my laptop whilst its tethered to my phone and 3G coverage.

I think its fantastic. Just sent my works emails (a groveling email as to why we had to abort a site) so I can get in and go straight to bed.

Oh, btw, I'm knackered too.

How many did you use? Has your life been the same since?....


Icloud is a very good idea for people with a lot of media. Tech is coming on in leaps and bounds but where will it stop? Im not sure where it can go next.

Hope you're not driving and posting, let alone e-mailing :shock:
