Auto updates are definitely the way to go, it should apply to operating systems too. Gradually pushing out an OS upgrade over a few days would be much more preferable to wasting an entire day reinstalling everything. It always struck me as irritating and time wasting that on boot Windows PCs love to pester the user about updates. It's like playing whack-a-mole fending off virus killers, Java, Adobe (oh wow they changed something niche again in the PDF rendering engine, here comes 10 meg!) and then Windows itself. It'd be much simpler if there was a standard update system built into the OS that everything had to use. However you're seriously screwed when the auto update system pushes out a broken update.

Apart from my keys the only things on my keyring is a tiny USB flash drive (It's a PNY 2gig designed to go in digital photo frames, and appears to just be a bit of PCB shaped to fit and painted black) and my Tesco keyfob clubcard which is just a barcode on a bit of plastic. I have a bag though, and in there I have an original Gameboy pocket with Tetris, my digital camera, iPod Touch and my mobile phone. It's also where my credit cards, money, work keys and work ID badge go and is a convenient "safe" place to empty my pockets when I visit people.
