Oh good, as if that wasn't already bad enough.  And this is why I don't trust.

"So starting from January 2015, if you are a T-Mobile customer you will be able to take advantage of Data Stash. This means that any data you have at the end of your billing cycle will remain yours and be entered into your data piggy bank, your ‘Data Stash’. According to Legere, your data stash will not expire and there is no limit to how much data you can store in there. To add to this and to get the whole thing rolling, Legere added that all T-Mobile customers will start their Data Stash with a free 10GB of 4G LTE data thrown in by T-Mobile. At the end of the month, T-Mobile will round up your unused data to the nearest MB and it will automatically be rolled over to the next month. It is worth noting though, your data will not roll-over forever and instead data will have to be used within a year of when it was first stashed."
We have been waiting to hear what T-Mobile's newest madcap venture would be in their latest Un-carrier move (this time it is Un-carrier 8) and now the deta

New Kitchen cabinets made by +Tonya Horvath 's brother's cabinet shop in California (http://www.oestercabinets.com/). They are all walnut with a black walnut stain. The big hole next to the refrigerator cabinet is for a baking center that can't really go up until the countertop is in because it comes all the way down to counter level. It's still not trimmed out but it's in. The countertop templates are done but they won't be in for about 2 weeks.

If you've been a fan of the Civilization series of games but did get the last one including both expansions (and the previous 2 versions) at the humble bundle. For just $15 you get all that and some of it goes to charity, you can get all of it minus the last expansion by paying more than the average price (which is $8.25 as of right now).
Pay what you want for Sid Meier's Civilization III Complete, Sid Meier's Civilization IV: The Complete Edition, Sid Meier's Ace Patrol, Sid Meier's Ace Patrol: Pacific Skies and Sid Meier's Railroads!. If you pay more than the average price, you'll also receive Sid Meier's Civilization V and Sid ...

Someone put a new Chromecast for you under the tree, or maybe you just bought one for yourself to finally bring Netflix to your TV. You unpacked it, hooked it up, watched a show or two — and now you’re wondering: What else can this thing do? A lot, actually. Not only are there now…

It's been 10 Nights since I got my matress from +Casper Sleep so I figured it was time to write a little review of it. The TLDR version is: yes, it is better than my old mattress and if you need a new mattress and can afford it you should at least try it out.

For comparison my old mattress was a queen size spring mattress with springs that were kind of worn out and a 2"  memory foam topper.

The most noticeable thing about the Casper mattress is that I really have to think about it to notice it. It really just kind of disappears when you're lying on it because it does such a good job of eliminating pressure points and all you're left with is that cloud-like sensation (I know that sounds like marketing BS but it's the best description I can come up with). I can really sleep in any position, including with my arm underneath me, without it being crushed against the mattress. I've also noticed that I can lay flat on my back without it hurting after 10 minutes like it used to. Another important thing is that it doesn't let you sink in very much, so you don't overheat or feel stuck (at least for my height and weight, which is somewhere in the 180s at 6'1").

My wife says she doesn't notice the mattress (which I guess is a good thing). She also has chronic back pain and despite doing a lot of work at our new house it hasn't been bothering her much lately so it seems the new mattress is helping with that too.

The only negatives that I can think of is that it's really strange to walk on because you do sink in really far when all your weight is concentrated on a small area, the same thing happens if you try to sit on the edge of the bed: the edge crushes down very far. But that isn't really a big deal and has nothing to do with how you sleep on it. Also, I've been sleeping in later, which I guess is a sign that the mattress is more comfortable, but means that I have less time to do stuff or might need to set an alarm.
The other issue is that the price is definitely more than a lot of mattresses you could get, but I do think it is worth it. Fortunately, Casper has a referral discount: If you put "Referred by Nick Horvath (nhorvath@gmail.com)" in the comments section on checkout you will get $75 off your mattress (and full disclosure: I'll get a $75 bonus too).

+Valentin Olar and +Jason Dow I know you were interested in the results of this.
