They already can't keep track of all the information that's going around. At what point are they going to hit the limit of diminishing returns?

Secondly, this is the second edition in which we have had full wireless capabilities. I think by now anyone who is competent will realize that the most secure thing they can do is simply log off.
I am all with you. But for covert ops and so on. When you have to be connected (for example, assuming you are using a link in a Secure AAA area), well being connected being a staple, why not trying to get some advantage from it. If you are not in a situation of direct opposition, but more something where the target is not aware of your presence, well having some distributed computation around (I don't think that could be identified as an activity, but I would like to see some specific detection actions for this) could help.
If you do it in the smart way, not going all out wireless so that if tables turn, then you will be able to get your nervous system hacked because you put your wired reflexes as well as your goggles online...

Then there's Sybil, which we still don't have a good grasp on... you know what, forget the data jack... i'll use goggles and bio-ware.
We don't know if bioware implantation use nanotech, you know. That could be in some body areas;) So maybe no implanted character is safe.

It it uses nano tech it would the pink goo kind which can't be reprogrammed. So unless it's in the nanites from the get go you should be safe.

If everything is connected...  Doesn't that mean that your Matrix-enabled gear helps people shoot you?  Like, an assassin with a smartgun comes up.  His smartgun is Matrix-enabled, so it connects to all devices within a certain range.  The majority of those devices are being carried by the people he's about to kill.  That has to be a bit depressing.
Remember, you don't have to kill the vehicle to stop it, just kill the guy driving it.

I assume "grimy" is actually an ammo clip.

Take a look at CanRay's avatar.
