Assumption, My Dear, Is The Mother Of... All On-Line Fun

After three days mostly in the dark (in terms of economical data), Ewan has a few choice words for manufacturers and software designers - don't assume that an Internet Connection is always present. Because there are times, especially when roaming, when an always-on data connection can be as much a curse as a blessing.

Welcome to the world of the frequent international traveller!

Applications are one thing, what we really need in the EU is action on roaming data, just like the action we had on calls & texts.
