On The Cost of Things in the U.S. After Being Away for 14 Years

On Only Connect: What We (Over)Pay For Wireless

@dromeda Interesting that they consider megacity to be a metropolitan area though and not just the city proper. New York as a megacity also seems includes a 30 mile radius around the city.

On Hank Green Explains Why You Can't Make it on YouTube Anymore

So it's kind of like app gold rush all over again. It'd be interesting to know what kind of money people are making on YouTube. I was first surprised years ago to hear Charlie Bit My Finger made over half a million dollars but then I realized that's over hundreds of millions of views.

@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 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?
