@limenotapple Forced to be social while under a magnifying glass? No thanks. It also still seems just as arbitrary anyway.

On Why Don't Ebooks Have In-book Ads? Because We Don't Read Enough

Hopefully Amazon isn’t thinking about this but with all the info they have about your shopping habits, how long is it before Amazon starts offering free or cheaper versions of ebooks that have embedded ads that are specifically targeted to you or a class of people like you who have purchased X book and Y goods from Amazon. Basically Freemium ebooks.

On What Is It Worth To Us To Live Alone

The stigma of living alone doesn't apply to young people moving out on their own for the first time. Or people in expensive areas like NYC finally making enough to pay for their own 1 bedroom. That's what you're supposed to be doing at that stage of your life. The stigma is attached to people who are of an age where they're not "supposed" to be living alone anymore. It's much the same stigma as the unmarried 45 year old woman or the newly single 50 year old man.

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

@aetataureate That's the absolute best part of laundry dropoff. Just ripping the bag open and unpacking straight into my dresser. Plus matched socks and folded fitted bed sheets!

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.
