I find it pretty funny all the people calling this lame because it's in old media. Unlike the advertisers, the people here don't seem to understand the demographic. From my experience with spanish speaking family, I can assure you this makes perfect sense. There are many in hispanic communities that use exclusively old … » 4/09/14 9:39am 4/09/14 9:39am

My wife constantly gets complimented on her ring that I bought off Amazon for under a $100 and we live in a relatively affluent area. Most people have no idea.. She would be furious if I spent the kind of money that you see as *recommendations*. I got lucky I guess. » 1/31/14 6:24am 1/31/14 6:24am

First, in a busy bar where a tender is serving hundreds of people I'm pretty sure they're not paying that close attention to their tips unless you make a big deal out of it. In a smaller place that's not swamped they'll notice you more. » 12/12/13 9:44am 12/12/13 9:44am

And if you're going on a 2 hour flight with airline internet I certainly don't want to stream them. Going on a road trip cross country and you have some awesome music to stream? Not soo fast... Doesn't solve all… » 10/29/13 1:00pm 10/29/13 1:00pm

Here's my rule. If I've said thank you in closing an email with a request in it I'm not going to reply to the request being completed with another thank you unless someone surprises me with exceptional quality, or exceptional speed.

More importantly though, I think the "Reply All" button should have at least a 3 step… » 10/08/13 3:28pm 10/08/13 3:28pm

I enjoyed this article from most perspectives. I'm curious why they would say a home is not that great an investment though. With the exception of the recent housing burst home and land ownership has generally been a very solid investment.
