Not So Fast, Google

Before going gaga over Google's goods, keep in mind that Google has security holes like everyone else. Just last week, Google announced it had to fix a major hole in its Desktop Search tool (which I can't live without).

If left unpatched, the hole could let hackers see your files, like the password.doc file that holds all your passwords!

As for the Google productivity suite, I would be concerned about having my files stored remotely. If I'm going to lose all my work, I want it to be my fault!
