Default interesting

I hadn't really thought about it. It is a huge vulerability, especially if mine were lost. SSH/Telnet, VNC, not to mention the core functionality...

Worst to admit, I instantly jumped up and said, yes! Passwords on the handheld...

Then i realized, oh, no locked handheld after 2 minutes. What a pain in the arse.

I am certain my users would freak out.

But it is an excellent point. I mean, the last two handhelds that were lost, were not reported to me until nearly 2 weeks after they had been lost...
