Lots of minor topics peppered the Apple-focused blogosphere this week, but two items stood taller than most. First off, Consumer Reports gave MacBooks of all sizes -- despite their high prices -- phenomenal ratings in almost every category in its tests of laptop computers. Secondly, built-in support for 3G wireless data services seems to be coming to MacBooks sometime soon. In other news, Mac clone maker Psystar might be cooking up its own Mac laptop, despite its ongoing litigation with Apple.

Spoken like a true urban dweller. Out here in the hinterland, I am much more likely to be able to find a WiFi hotspot than any cellular connection, never mind 3G. I can think of a dozen spots in our little town of 700 people where I can get a WiFi link, but I would have to drive 45 minutes to the nearest place where 3G works.

Agree, because I like my job regardless of where I perform my duties.
Comply, because I can't afford to lose my current job.
Go with the flow, but start looking for different employment.
Resign immediately, so I can dedicate all of my time to find a job that better suits my needs.
Try to negotiate a hybrid work from home / work in office arrangement with my employer.
