comment sharing browsing session and history over multiple machines
Whoa, I actually didn't see your answer. I knew about Chrome Sync because I use it, and then after I'd posted it, thought "hm, I bet there's a firefox addon to do this, I'll go look", so I checked on addons.mozilla.org, and there it was. I guess I was reading your mind/you were reading mine and we just didn't realize it :P +1 to you for accidental brain reading ;)

comment Can I move Ubuntu vmware installation to a new laptop?
To clarify, are you trying to move the VM installation to be the main OS on the new computer, or just move it over to a VM on the new computer?

comment Whats the deal with these new lower clock speed CPUs on Laptops? Can they still run apps well?
Keep in mind that for gaming, most of the work is done by the GPU, not the CPU, so you could potentially play a game with high end graphics on a low-clocked CPU like one of the CULV processors and still get good performance if you have a dedicated GPU.

comment Organizing My Windows Desktop
Agreed. I can scarcely imagine a need for 40 icons. There are performance reasons for not storing files on the desktop, and if you have that many application shortcuts on the desktop, they would be better fit for the start menu.

comment How to connect a smart router to a dumb DSL modem?
Yes, usually the ISP will tell you to use PPPoA, but PPPoE almost always works fine. The reason this works is because as far as the ISP and your network see, your modem and your router are essentially one integrated device when you do this. Give it a try, hopefully it'll work!

comment VirtualBox's Internet doesn't work no matter what
Agreed that it may be a bad install. Try reinstalling virtual box - it's possible the network drivers it adds got misconfigured or removed or otherwise messed up.
