comment How do I keep working if I'm going to die anyway?
@daCoda To get a patent, yes, first you have to invent something -- typically a piece of hardware. You can't just patent an idea. However you can patent software and business practices, maybe. The patent must be unique and not be obvious to others "skilled in the art". You then get a patent lawyer. Probably minimum to get a patent is around $10,000. More reasonable figure is twice that. All but two of my patents were paid for by companies I worked for.

comment How do you handle a workday after a bad night sleep?
I often find myself working well past midnight, and end up getting 4 hours or less sleep. I usually make it through the morning but start dozing off in the afternoon. So I use 5-Hour Energy (which actually works, at least for me).

comment How to assess the worth of my free time?
It's easy to compute this if one is a freelancer and charges by the hour -- the value of your free time is the same as your rate. So if you go to a site e.g. How to Calculate Your Hourly Rate which helps you calculate what you would be charging as a freelancer, then you have the number.

comment How do I improve typing speed on a touchscreen device?
@Muz A lot of states are making typing while driving illegal; even if your state hasn't, it's very dangerous no matter what method you are using. (If you are a passenger typing, obviously ignore my comment.)

comment Is there such a thing as a package receiving service?
In the US, Mail Boxes Etc was purchased by UPS and is now know as the UPS store. As long as you rent a mailbox from them, they accept packages from anyone (USPS, Fedex, UPS etc.).

@laika Still not as simple as the Kindle, which delivers the files in the background ("push" model). With the Sony, you have to log into Dropbox from its browser and fetch the files ("pull") model that you have dropped into your dropbox on your PC or wherever.

I have added information on the "Send to Kindle" application for PC and Mac which is a one-click solution to sending files, web pages, and printed material to a Kindle.
