And then when your connectivity goes down you're screwed. After my own
technomadic experiences I really don't want to rely on something over
which I have as little control as the telephone system. There are also
situations where I can't use it, for example when flying. Finally it's
expensive when you can buy all that processing power to carry around for
the cost of a few days of connect time.
