On Here Is Your Open Thread

@umlauts Have you had a chance to try Inbox yet? I like being able to snooze an email and have it reappear a few days later. It also bundles emails together so it has some auto-categorization stuff. You can create your own bundles which are basically folder rules and mark stuff as done so they get archived.

On Handy Sued

I don't like this trend among startups that disguise skirting laws as innovation and efficiency.

On You Can't Afford To Be Fat At Work

@Josh Michtom@facebook Men get judged as well, just not necessarily on their weight. A man's height for example, has been studied and shown to have a correlation to pay.

On WWYD: Bring Bottles In Yourself Or Leave Them for the Less Fortunate

This reminds me of a question I've always had. If you live in a building with a trash and recycling area, what happens to the deposits on the bottles? Is it all up to the landlord at that point?

On Going "Gluten Free" is for Rich People

@honey cowl It's not actually the real celiacs that proselytize. It's the people jumping on the band wagon, who see this as some kind of faux health-kick who have made it into yet another thing to judge people on.

On It Depends on What the Definition of "Unlimited" Is

Switched to T-Mobile for their $30 plan for 5GB of data. T-Mobile's network is fine for the most part but even in NYC, I get old 2G data more often than I like. That said, I'm saving $650 a year compared to my corporate discounted AT&T account so it's more than worth it to me. And when it works, it's sometimes 5-10x faster than my AT&T line.

On Is There a Class Component to Catcalls

In defense of GI Joe, I have stood up and called other men out when they catcalled my friends right in front of me. And you know what? It instantly got insanely aggressive and almost turned into a fight. GI Joe could've just been looking to avoid a fight altogether. I'll defend my friends but I'm not risking a fight for a stranger.

On Paying for Theaters vs Waiting for Netflix

@garli I'm seeing that option more often now on iTunes and/or Google Play. They usually run $8.99 or more and they're typically limited run or indie flicks.

On Paying by Phone

@Erica You have the same worry about your wallet getting stolen too though. Plus at least with a phone, you can possibly find it or track it down or at least set it to wipe remotely.
