Leo LaPorte has made a good suggestion. He suggests owners of hotspots use protected wifi so traffic is encrypted. Since a secure password is not just not needed but undesirable it should be included in the network name--for example: networkname(password=password).

I recently left AT&T and after three years of iPhone I was unable to type at all on the teeny tiny Blackberry keyboard! I ended getting an HTC EVO because it has a glass capacitative touch screen and has that iPhone "feel." My speed on Blackberry was less than half that on iPhone. I guess that's an acquired taste. As to keyboards, I used to love the old mechanical IBM keyboards, but I'm now with the commenters who note the lack of ergo keyboards in the list. My employer bought me a Kinesis Advantage (for $285!) after my elbow and wrist surgery two years ago because the damage to my wrist and elbow was attributed to keyboarding by my hand surgeon. The Kinesis Advantage's mechanical keys have a similar "click" to those old IBM's but the hand positioning is nearly optimal, which it is not with the IBM. I do use the built-in keyboard on my Macbook Pro for short durations at home, but I can't tolerate a standard keyboard for long. I also use a vertical mouse at work, as a standard mouse or trackball puts too much stress on my wrist. I couldn't do my job without my Kinesis Advantage and my vertical mouse.
