>Having resources when you need it. Lets say you have some seasonal tasks that needs extra horse power (Quarterly Reports, Christmas Rush, Back To School, Exam Time...) so you can request short term extra power to keep up
What about when all the other folks have exactly the same idea?
Cloud provider sez: "Err, sorry buddy, no space in the cloud right now... but we might find a little bit you can have for, um, 3 times the price... ah, no, that's just gone to your competitor for 4x but I'm sure we can get it for you at 5x"
You're excused. To someone brought up on 'cmd' PS is probably indistinguishable from magic.
Oh, and congrats, Mickeysoft, on finally figuring how to do wrap-around text selection. Welcome to the 20th century.
Contact won't happen until we stop eating sentient animals. Imagine what would happen if a space-faring race that looked like giant prawns turned up
Stupid JS Tricks - like popping to the top of the page when returning from a link instead of returning to where you were. Stupid, stupid, stupid. And stupid.

BTW as a sidenote I actually really like Ubuntu Unity. At first disliked it, but have gotten quite accustomed to it

have a ~30% greater need for computing resources for the period between mid-november and early january
This is the myth I want to see busted. You see, every company in retail wants that extra 30% at Xmas.
