Everybody should watch the Ghost In the Shell TV series.
I'm holding out for a prosthetic body and my soul in the cloud.
Today Google Glass, tomorrow bionic eyes.

All the time wasted trying to get your Visual Studio cheevos recognised could have been spent achieving more cheevos elsewhere. I don't think you're taking cheevos achieving seriously enough?
"Cheevofying a chick" - Sounds illegal to me.
I always thought C9/coffeehouse was the place for Microsofties to listen to public opinion creating the level of transparency I thought channel 9 was about? Okay the videos are great but I always wished for Microsoft developers to post in the coffeehouse, people are busy I suppose. When somebody is ranting on about Microsoft its only official defense is you Charles, I feel bad for you...you'd think the people that write the code, make the decisions would be here posting on the only official Microsoft community site?
Was it heavy?
I recently purchased an Ipad 3 and I think its great, note taker HD, kindle books and pdfs(novels and textbooks), games, Pepper Pig for the baby plus a chess app.
I really disliked the Apple movement for a long time, the marketing strategy, the end users etc but you have to admit IT isnt for geeks anymore. We're living in a world where average joe uses a cheap laptop just to check his/her facebook. Apple have the human IT market, if their prices were lower then they'd have the whole market.
I cant stand to hold my breath much longer for a solution, an eco-system from Microsoft. I waited for a Windows phone and although it is good I still use the Facebook app rather than the integrated features. There are apps missing for the market place why will they suddenly appear for the Windows 8?
I actually thought that we were getting a new full Desktop OS and Metro OS loosely based on the same thing with a chance to install either depending on your hardware. People wont budge from XP and definitely not Windows 7.
I use Opera full time (Dev) right now I have 45 tabs open. At my worst I have triple that, this is partly due to the save feature when you close re-open the browser, never had a problem.
When Opera cant handle a something like Silverlight I will open IE instead....the time it takes just to open, copy a url and go is atrocious.
