Not sure why but I always think that you live in the DC area. My last boat was a 20' and we did do some lake trips which I really enjoy.

Actually the size of the boat is only a small part of the rate you burn fuel. My prior boat was 20' with 150 HP. and my current boat is a 25' with a 280 HP but its better on gas. The older outboard motors are great but they suck gas like crazy and my new boat has an inboard/outboard and its great on gas compared to the older outboards. Now the newer outboards are better on gas because of technology but they are big $ to have any work done on them.

do they have a slim case for it yet like the e-book readers?

one of those and a (forgive me for saying this) shoulder strap would be pretty ideal, slimmed down laptop bag type thing

seems like it'd be great to just chill on the couch with, check the weather before heading out to work, just a bit of coin for that

hopefully they'll eventually have a worthy OS on it or someone will port a Linux version to it that's stable and runs the apps

I bought this case from Apple, just got it yesterday. It's alright, but I'm going to keep shopping around for a better one I think.

So Matty, in a completely unrelated note, what made you such a diehard Skins fan as to run one of the premier boards?

Amazing game. And kudos to you for staying with the Skins through the late 90s till now. I was in Colorado when they won the 2 SB, and man my Skins Fandom was tested (I was expecting to stay there forever, and Denver was my AFC team, so it was more swapping AFC with NFC) but still stayed with us throughout. Hard to imagine not growing up a Skins fan and then dealing with the last 15-18 years.

Re: Apple expected to unveil 'Jesus' tablet today

Definitely got spoiled growing up a Skins fan in the 80s. I just thought it was a given that the Skins were going to be a playoff team every year and compete for a Super Bowl regularly. It's been some lean times since 1991 that's for sure.
