Chances of heart-attack were stated to increase by 10 percent on the days following the spring change, and to decrease by 10% "after gaining the hour in the fall" I've found a cure for all heart attacks! Set the clocks back an hour once a month! (I'll accept my Nobel Prize award in Bitcoins please).

This was going to be the nail in the coffin for future upgrading of office. Already at work I've been using 2010 for a few months and it just isn't as good as 2007. Going from 2003 to 2007 was a big learning curve with the new ribbon, but 2010 changed the behavior and keyboard shortcuts without adding any features that I've found.

Buying from 30 vendors with PayPal: 30 vendors have your email address. Buying from 30 vendors with a CC: 30 vendors have your credit card. It's just that simple. The idea of PayPal is brilliant - The execution is just shady since they haven't been designated/regulated like a bank which they should be.

Yup!! What he said. I have a netbook (several actually) and they are often unusable for productivity due to the screen size and sloowwww processor. This device seems like something that I can actually get work done on. I almost got a (very favorably reviewed) Slate recently but decided instead to wait for Microsoft's tablet. I think it's definitely worth the extra $$ to get one that actually runs Windows 8 natively. A walled garden is only as usable as its app base which is puny for Windows RT.
