Please tell them to offer at least 12GB of RAM!

A non ultra-power processor will be great as well (DELL made it in slim XPS already), but that might be asking too much :)

While mostly an Android "power-user" for the last 5 years, I have had a few iterations of the Windows 8 Phone.  For each, the apps weren't there and I missed several features from Android/iOS, so i went back each time.  Using a Lumia 1520 now with the latest update and it is just awesome - features I wanted are there* and it doesn't feel half-baked.  Apps have matured nicely, as well.  Don't miss the Android/iOS devices at all.

Note: It's not a defect, just inherent in the design.

I'd go for CAT6 and be prepared for 100+ mbit fiber. you're right about the non-geek better halves. If after the change they don't notice anything, it's awesome for us, but they've just done a day (or more) without us.

The last of the Navajo Code Talkers

U.S. Marine Corps Cpl. Chester Nez receives an American flag from Pfc. Tiffany Boyd, at Code Talker Hall, Marine Corps Base Quantico, Va., April 4, 2014. The flag was flown over the Marine Corps War Memorial, on the first day of spring in honor of Cpl. Nez's attendance at the Platoon 382 Hall rededication. Cpl. Nez is the last of the original 29 Navajo Code Talkers of World War II. (U.S. Marine Corps photo by Cpl. Kathryn K. Bynum/Released) http://dvidshub.net/r/86h5cn

Story
Tagline
Scott Hanselman is a former computer science professor, former Chief Architect in finance, now speaker, consultant, father, diabetic, and Microsoft employee working as an Architect in Web Developer Tools. I am a failed stand-up comic, and current book author.
Introduction

My name is Scott Hanselman. I work out of my home office for Microsoft as a Principal Program Manager for our Web Platform, aiming to spread good information about developing software, usually on the Microsoft stack. Before this I was the Chief Architect at Corillian Corporation, now a part of Checkfree, for 6+ years. I was also involved in a few Microsoft Developer things for many years like the MVP and RD programs and I'll speak about computers (and other passions) whenever someone will listen.

Before Corillian and Microsoft I worked as a Principal Consultant at a local Microsoft Solution Provider called STEP Technology, speaking, writing, consulting, and very much not getting rich during Web 1.0. Even earlier, I worked at a Car Parts Data Warehouse called Chrome Data, and before that I had a small company that specialized in internationalization and thunking. I've also been an Adjunct Professor at OIT, teaching C#. On the side, I created the first PalmPilot Diabetes Management System in 1998 and sold it to a healthcare company five years later. It's now in limbo, but I'm trying to get it released as Open Source.

What else would you like to know?

I am an early adopter, it seems.  I ran Tweak Computer Support BBS, with some success, a very long time ago. I was a FidoNet node. I have nice teeth and love cheese amongst other things. I like Tools, and I've co-written some books. I'm diabetic. I like studying Amharic and Zulu/Ndebele and listening to African Music as well as other more diverse music. I know Black Hair and can both braid and cornrow. I have a podcast. I hack on hardware and waste time. I do Open Source. I am good at Excel and keep my resume mostly up to date for no reason. We speak Sign Language to my son and my wife speaks Ndebele. I have a great family and have had great teachers and a fantastic wedding with a great Cake Topper. I don't sleep too much. I write a lot. I'm trying to raise $50,000 for Diabetes research.

That's me, today. I'll be different tomorrow, hopefully better.
