    Ah, if only. Loved the idea of Google Paper, but that would be way too good to be true.

    Speaking of gmail though, anyone else having problems with gmail pop access recently? I haven't been able to get to mine for about four days, and only realized it two days ago (thought it was strange that I hadn't received anything in 48 hours...)

    mine works fine, though I had an error in the past where a server went down and reset the POP access settings.

    Interesting enough the idea of fiber through the sewer isn't such a farfetched idea. It was done in the early 2000's by a startup here which used the sewers and robots to bring fiber to cities.

    I only skim read this article and thought it was for real, until i followed the link through to the google page and saw the cable sticking out the toilet. Before I read it I did see the router and think ah-ha netgear partnership.
