I am a professional poker player and I want to get a tablet that runs full windows operating system so I can play poker on the go (for example get 10 minutes in while im at the bank, or doctors office or waiting for a bus). It must be able to run regular windows programs like a desktop pc would. It must be able to take a sim card so I can use 3g Internet, and be carrier unlockable so I can use it in other countries. I would prefer used or refurbished, and the option for an external mouse and external keyboard would be a nice bonus. Long battery life would also be nice (6 hours+ of internet usage). Please give me specific tablet ideas and give feel free to mention more things I should consider, specs, or problems i haven't anticipated playing poker in public that I hadn't considered yet, etc.

I have a project on Google Earth I created on a PC and want to show off on a tablet, but things are not going smoothly. Have I missed something? Do you know how I can make my project better on a tablet? Specific questions outlined inside, but I welcome other suggestions that may help me in ways I had not even thought about yet. [more inside]

When at a bar/pub, I default to tipping on each drink (cash is easy to remember this way, for me). When they hold a running tab, what is the appropriate etiquette when cashing out at the end of the night? [more inside]

I just bought my first Mac (Leopard). It seems like Command + tab to switch applications is way less useful than Ctrl + tab was on my Windows--I don't really want to tab between things I've shut but not closed (or however you say it), and repeatedly four-finger swiping to view all open apps makes me have to look for which one I want every time, which is slow. Am I missing something?

Looking for two Firefox abilities: is there a Firefox extension that lets you select multiple tabs and move them to a new window with one action? And is there a Firefox extension that lets you merge bookmark folders? [more inside]

What really is the difference between a new tab or a new window while using an internet browser? Does opening a tab take up less RAM than a new window or is it merely more convenient?

Where can I find .gp4, .gp5, or .ptb tab files (preferably free) ... because they work with this awesome guitar iphone app thing I just impulse-bought! Although, if there is an amazing outlet, I'd pay a membership. Don't want to buy them piecemeal though. [more inside]

What's the best firefox add-on for previewing/managing a bunch of tabs that are on the same site and look alike in thumbnails, but can be distinguished by their text? I have bunches of tabs open and the tab bar becomes utterly useless, so I need an add-on (not just thumbnail-based) that can do much better.

My wife used to love Tab energy drink both for the burst of energy and for the flavor. We can't find it any more. She needs an energy drink tonight to rev up for Halloween festivities. Are there any commonly found (we live in the midwest) energy drinks that taste similar to the Tab energy drink?

I'm using Firefox 3.5 (on Leopard). Whenever I re-open FF, it remembers my tabs as it should, but there's a catch. All of them will "load" forever without actually doing anything unless I go to the location bar of each and hit enter. Hitting "Reload all tabs" doesn't work, instead it makes them all go blank. Also, until I switch to another tab and back, the URL of the first tab doesn't even appear. [more inside]

Whenever I try to type ä's, ö's and å's (or any character that requires Alt + x), my tabs in Firefox go crazy, and no character results. I presume this is because Alt + x is a preprogrammed shortcut in Firefox to switch tabs. Any idea how I can turn this off?

I am trying to make index tab dividers for a group of three ring binders I am producing for a training class at my work. I would like to have them look as professional as possible.
The image below illustrates how I am creating them now.. and how I would LIKE them to look. (These are for 5.5 x 8.5 size sheets):
Aside from spending a zillion dollar with a professional service bureau, does anyone have any ideas how to achieve good results 'at home'?

Guitar Tabs. Does anyone know of a web site that explains how to translate guitar tablature into standard music notation? Or, if this is relatively easy to explain, would anyone like to do that?

As I begin to learn the piano again, there are some songs I'd love to try to play but for which I cannot find sheet music (I definitely want to learn to play by ear at some point, but I don't think that point would best be now). I can however obtain guitar tabs for the songs, and so I'm hoping to try to translate those into rough sheet music for the piano. Can I just translate it note by note (and chord by chord), or are there some specifics about guitar tabs I should be aware about and take into account (it seems that way, a quick direct translation didn't seem to turn out quite right)?
