I love my Nexus5, but sometime I need a real keyboard.
My Samsung Chromebook rocks, it's great, but a little too large if I take it somewhere social, like a sport-bar or work (which they don't approve of BYOD anyway).
The light cavalry option is my Nexus7, but with a MiniSuit keyboard/case that connects via Bluetooth. For a while now, I've been carrying it in my hand, which was fine, but...
The other day, I figured out that I could fit them both in the back pocket of my jeans. Neat!

I posted this on Google+ earlier today, more in frustration than anything else. My Toshiba laptop running Crunchbang Linux is beginning to have hardware problems, but replacing it will be problematic until the Linux community come up with a really good, solid way of hacking around UEFI.
I realize that I'm in the minority of computer users out there, but I'm also a computer buyer, and these past two years have been horrible in terms of computer sales. Maybe I'm not the only one who's pissed off about the situation.
Sometimes, picking a fight works better than being the nice guy.

It tells me that no one has really got a better idea, or there's not much good news to share. In place of that, you have to try to fire the troops up with whatever you've got, and that means sports. There will be a clear winner, a clear loser, both sides will give 110% (despite being mathematically impossible, for either side) and nothing real will be lost!
It's a psychological trick to make you feel better about the situation you find yourself in while those in charge try to figure out what the fuck they're really going to do. Sometimes it works, and sometimes it doesn't.
This quote, in particular, is worthless. It's wrong. The speed a group travels at is the speed of the lowest unit within that group. A leader could choose to expelled the slowest, and thereby increase the overall speed of the group, but if it's established that the maximum speed is X, handwaving and cheer-leading will still result in X speed.
You'll also notice the quote is unattributed. I expect that if you found the guy who said it in the first place and asked him how it applied to selling office supplies in a retail space, he'd be making the same face you're making now reading this.
When you are weak, try to appear strong. When you are strong, appear weak.
