I am using Google desktop version 4. By default search across computers
is not enabled. Can someone explain me why all the noise if I just don't
use the feature.
True, it's not enabled by default, but Google is pitching this as an
easy way to access your work documents from home (or vise-versa) .. and
*that* is a serious security risk.
In the corporate world, users don't get to make their own choices.
Management makes them, and it's the IT department's job to enforce that
-- against the user's will kicking and screaming, if necessary.
