My main machine is now an ASUS Transformer Prime and I couldn't be happier. I charge it most nights, but even if I forget for two nights in a row the battery is usually good enough. I can't do any dev work on it, but I don't like developing on laptops - I need at least two large monitors to be at all productive. For everything else, the TF201 is a really superb device.

I have to ask: why do your cats observe DST?
Of course money can't buy happiness! Money is happiness! On a serious note, I recently moved to a different continent so I'm in the process of buying a new everything. I think these tips are pretty much what I normally try to do, but I'll try to keep them in mind as they're extremely relevant at this moment.

That really depends on the type of site. When you go to a shopping website, and sort the results by price, you might want to go to the middle page to see what's available in that range. You can't really do that conveniently with infinite scrolling.

I don't own a battery charger. Instead I have a 10-pack of AA batteries I bought in IKEA back in 2009, and I used one of those batteries once, for something I can't quite recall. The other 9 are still waiting for me to find a use for them...

How about this: you have a PGP key pair installed on your machine. Your username (everywhere) is the public key. Your password is the url (or something in a meta tag), encrypted with the private key. Both base-64 encoded. You can also install that certificate on the cloud, in which case you would get each password by logging in there, so you wouldn't need to install the certificate when you're a guest. In other words, you'll only use the cloud when you're not on your default machine. Isn't that simpler, and just as secure?
You might be interested in this suggestion on the newish VS uservoice forum: It basically says "let us use Edit and Continue even though we're using features that were introduced after Visual Studio 2005"...

The handwriting recognition on my dad's old Windows tablet was pretty decent though. Also, when I get voicemail by Google voice, the speech recognition is pretty nice - except when the voicemail is in a different language. Then it's just funny.
