If you use a public PC keep your eyes open for the Google Desktop Icon

System Administrators are already having near stokes in realizing the power of the Google Desktop Search engine. As an example today I received a notice from a company I deal with that they could not update my yearly subscription because my credit card had expired. I went to the site to update my CC info and realized I had forgot my password.
