I blogged yesterday about how Opera reports that a high percentage of Opera Mini use in the US goes to social networking sites. Maybe one explanation is the phenomenon in the article below. If people become concerned about their bosses reading their company emails, one obvious way to deal with it is with a relatively inexpensive mobile device that does not use the company's networking infrastructure at all -- a device like the iPhone, consumer Blackberry, Android phone, or even my aging Samsung A500M. To paraphrase Princess Leia, the more IT tightens its grip, the more packets slip through its fingers.
