Backing up my hard drive feels so tedious at times.  I've tried setting it up so that it syncs to my Amazon Drive account every three days, but it really slows things down so I tend to abort it.

 I like the dedicated shortcut keys and think that was a great idea. Oddly enough, it feels like there's so much competition among tech companies that they're making oddly specific products to gain that niche consumer.

They look handy and they're affordable.  However, you can create your own shortcut keys by remapping parts of the keyboard.  There's tons of freeware that'll do it.
