I am now the proud owner of a Google Nexus 5, and it only took about 40 minutes in the store. It still seems ridiculous that it takes even that long, but at least we didn’t have to wait for someone else to finish up.
From this thread on Reddit come a few websites that are cool. (That is an awkward sentence. I’m leaving it, though. Ssh.) The Nicest Place on the Internet shows short videos of people smiling at you and giving you hug. Seriously, they seem like very nice people. You can mute the music. Also, The Internet is Useful: descriptions of and links to websites, apps, books, etc., that are actually useful.
You are welcome. Pardon me while I go watch nice people smile at me.
