comment How to absolutely minimize Windows 8 data usage (for satellite phone)
but they're generally designed for a wi-fi hotspot where you get 5GB a month and not MB. I'm worried that there'll be lots of random services just using very small amounts of data and not even respecting the metering settings.

comment Extension for Chrome that redirects you to an existing tab if you try and open the same url
this is far from perfect. you have to electively say for each tab that you want it to be a singleton - and plus if you have multiple windows open it isn't able to jump to another window. it just closes the tab as you type the url. it this not technically possible? someone needs to solve this problem

comment How to filter the unreplied emails only in Outlook 2010?
I'm sorry but I don't see what this filter has got to do with replied messages. Maybe in your environment it does because of some side effect of the way you manage messages - but this certainly not a generic solution to the problem

comment Does an equivalent of Time Machine exist for Windows?
@Cawas it's hardly a repeated answer since the other Crashplan answer basically just said 'it works nicely' with no details. there's nothing to say you can't combine backup strategies - a full system image with Windows backup and Crashplan for your day to day work. (personally I like rebuilding a machine to get everything fresh if I ever have a crash)
