I'm not a nerd as such. I claim to have a (very healthy) "so what?" attitude to technology, new features, new apps etc. Show me what new stuff is useful for and I might get excited. But technology for technology's sake leaves me pretty cold.
The problem is that new stuff - and even or especially new versions of existing stuff - has a huge installation/configuration/learning curve that has to be surmounted before you can even determine if it is useful. Some instances unfortunately also have a huge uninstall curve that has to be conquered before your system/business/life functions as it did before you started!
But today is my lucky day. Someone pointed me at Zonbu - which is the coolest "so what? solution, I've seen in a long time!
Quoting the web site
