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.

Comment Re:Why use paypal? (Score 1) 147

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.

Comment Re:RT is a LOSER (Score 1) 193

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.
