My favorite
"Imagine shooting down an icy track on an iPod. That's absurd, you say, and rightly so -- if you really want to go downhill fast you use a Zune." Haha, well done, sir.

Re: Autocorrection
This just makes me think about all of the awful experiences that I have with multitasking. 

It is really hard to troubleshoot someone's problem at their computer while on the phone troubleshooting someone else's problem. 

Ah, halcyon days.

guest event/judge?
What's the chance Edward Snowden makes a guest appearance (either in the Men's 1000 Download Fast Track event or as a judge in the Firewall Jump)?

Cloud computing luge
If you're brave enough, travel through Microsoft, Google and Amazon pipes to Sochi -- and settle once and for all the question of whose cloud platform performance is best. Bonus points if you snap selfie with Satya Nadella along the way.

Autocorrection
The use of autocorrection should be forbidden under far less extreme circumstances.
