Too many Devices
Gregory Alan Bolcer stashed this in Pandas!
Emperor Joseph II: My dear young man, don't take it too hard. Your work is ingenious. It's quality work. You simply have too many devices, that's all. Just cut a few and you will be much happier.
Mozart: Which few did you have in mind, Majesty?
Windows desktop for games, overclocking, writing, taxes, email.
Ubuntu 11 Desktop for development, Web applications, experimentation.
Alienware laptop for travel, trips, and demos, sometimes casual games.
iPhone4 which has replaced any other email reading device whenever I am more than 10 steps away from my desktop.
My AWS EC2 and S3 machines for day job supporting development, trial customers, and IT storage and backups.
My Google Apps and App Engine accounts for big data development and cloud apps.
And now my Galaxy Tab 10.1 for doing Kerosene/AR demos.

No, but a dozen or so throwable and squishable angry birds!
Those can be incredibly useful, actually.
Not just for decompressing, but for making a point.
