@TheFu: Would this ever really survive in court as a theft of service? He's paying to have the service piped into his house (for internet access), is it really his fault that the company doesn't want to spend the money to filter the line?

@PrincessLeah: So very, very true. All the big screen TVs and toys in the world can't make up for realizing you worked your youth away.

@Jason: I was going to say the same thing but I realized that my watch (also an EcoDrive) has a solar panel in the face. Hmmm. Still, it's not a digital watch. =)

@Cerberus_tm: Probably a wise decision. I gave Windows Mobile a fair shake (two phones 3+ years, Windows Mobile 5 and 6), but it was just too much work and too inflexible.

@Cerberus_tm: I usually could find some way to do something but it would take an hour searching online, reading forums, testing it out, maybe hacking the phone's registry or trying to find some obscure application to patch stuff together, etc. etc. Read more

@izikavazo: A few tips on the milk crate thing... The milk crates are resting on a steel file cabinet (my desk used to be just a door on two file cabinets) and they are two deep. I put them on their sides and nested them (like they are nested when they are stacked) and then used zip ties to hold them together. The Read more

@blanksuspect: It's the Sidebar Gadget for PackageTrackr. I order so much stuff online it keeps a running list of where things are and when I should be expecting them. It's an awesome web service and a great little widget.

@Avinant: Yeah, I upgrade when I have a compelling reason to do so. I upgraded from Windows Mobile to Android when I realized that Windows Mobile wasn't just a pain in the ass with no good apps but that I couldn't do what I wanted to do and I couldn't really write about anything for Lifehacker because there were no Read more

@drongch: I talk about blogging as a way to connect lessons to real world application, so they know. I'd say 10 percent of them think it's really cool and 90% of them are like "Blogging? RSS Wut?"

@Whitson Gordon: Yeah there's no point unless you have multiple systems. Unless you frequently mess around with XBMC and need to reinstall it. Having everything on a central server makes rebuilding the library nearly instant.

@155: What would I gain? I don't need a bigger screen, or a faster processor, and the speed increase for data transfer would be of negligible benefit. By the time the Hero is "old" to me, we'll be well past the Evo.

@BK Phil: Actually my nettop XBMC isn't a Revo, it's a Zotac MAGHD. =)
