    I discovered Sauce can run Windows 8 tests at a higher resolution and can also take screenshots on WebDriver errors. TO enable this, use these capabilities:
    case GridInternetExplorer10:
    capabilities = DesiredCapabilities.internetExplorer();
    capabilities.setCapability("selenium-version", sauceSeleniumVersion );
    capabilities.setCapability("platform", "Windows 8" );
    capabilities.setCapability("version", "10");
    capabilities.setCapability("name", testname);
    capabilities.setCapability("screen-resolution", "1280x1024"); // works only on Windows 8
    capabilities.setCapability("webdriver.remote.quietExceptions", false ); // allows Sauce to save a screenshot of exceptions
    capabilities.setCapability("record-screenshots", false ); // for increased speed
    capabilities.setCapability("record-video", true ); // we need videos

    Will not be able to make it today. The video recording option seems great! Hoping to catch up on some of the details.

    Interesting tidbit I ran across: Will Selenium 3 beta version be available for testing and research? Yes, we plan on releasing a beta. For now you can simulate the effect by disallowing classes in the com.thoughtworks.selenium package.

    I will be willing to show my "shots on sauce" open source tool coming to a test automater soon!! (20 min)

    Another idea that could be shown in a session like this is to use the TestNG "@AfterMethod" annotation to save a different screenshot for every test method or iteration of a test. Another idea, but more difficult, is to show how a HTML report can be generated that shows a link to the screenshot for a each test.
