Have you heard about this extremely controversial proposal? I'd be interested to hear your take.

Do you think it doesn't really matter much OR would you rather be able to save more than a couple million? via +Bargaineering

$2000,000 even adjusted for inflation using government numbers might not even buy you one lap-dance when you retire.

So true, and since tablets are usually cheaper than laptops or desk top pcs, it's even smarter to use a tablet in terms of saving money!

This is really similar to what's going with phones, and how more and more folks just have cell phones (no need for a home phone anymore). 

With this, plus the advent of Google Glass, It seems like fewer and fewer folks will need an actual computer in the next few years...do you agree?

Tablets aren't just cheaper at the outset -- they require a lot less energy to run than a desktop or laptop computer. Plus, you're using energy to power these larger devices even when you're not using them, whereas a tablet is often only plugged in once it really needs a recharge.

This might be more banking related, but I still thought it was worth sharing -- some really exciting stuff, could be the biggest thing since mobile!

"As with mobile phones and the iPad, banks may some day discover those who ignored Google Glass did so at their own peril."

I've seen this touched on indirectly in other posts here. Nice post by +Philip Brewer at +Wise Bread !

By the way, I do as much as I can to eat cheap AND healthy. Sometimes I end up choosing one or the other, but no one's perfect ;)

Good call +Heather Stephens . I personally try not to eat non-organic berries since I've read these have some of the most pesticides and chemicals.

Another way to save money annually is by using a programmable thermostat. Heating and cooling account for HALF of your energy bill, and using a programmable thermostat properly can save around 10% annually. http://www.resnet.us/library/programmable-thermostats/

I saved $2.25 today by walking the 4 miles to downtown instead of taking the bus!

100% agree! Who knows if I'll be at the point where this will actually affect me or not, but it's still the principle of it

Add to the initial cost savings the simple fact that powering a tablet requires a tiny fraction of the energy required to power a desktop or even a laptop -- especially all that time they spend on standby.
