I am always on the go. I do everything from office work to motorcycle rides to the pistol shooting competitions to Australian trips to the deep outback. I demand much from my electronics, so I have high expectations. Look at my previous posts and you will see that it is hard to please me.
I was asked this question and it turned out to be a very useful tip. For those of you who abhor the use of "vi" as the default *nix text editor when doing git commits merges pulls etc., rejoice!

$ git config --global core.editor emacs
This works in most *nix based systems, including Mac OSX. If you just flat out have vi but don't know what to use, "nano" is a pretty newb friendly text editor. or... you could just learn vi :)

I have been anxiously awaiting the arrival of my newly purchased Lenovo Thinkpad 8 tablet PC! Lenovo even has communicated that it is designed to take some market share away from Apple.
While google-ing for a case and accessories, I found Amazon's Thinkpad 8 product page. I scrolled down and casually looked at the documentation, only to find that their description has a bit of an error!
Apple fanboys and Haters will agree on at least one point -- Apple's iPad is a very refined product and positions itself well to be used for business. But as many have said, the higher some climb, the greater they can fall... so can iPad be unseated? Can some of that market be shared ? Lenovo's bold Thinkpad 8 is going to try...
