Much of european hostel scene is full of people wanting to go out and party, most days you'll meet 5-10 new people and have a lot of fun. You can do it for a week to see what's like, I bet you'll be hooked.
I second this. I'm just back from a short holiday where we spent part of it in a hostel and part in an apartment. The hostel was much more fun. New people from all over Europe arrived everyday. The hostel owner introduced us, suggested we have dinner together and then we all went out for the night. Great way to meet new people and not very awkward either.
Just because the Moto E is cheap doesn't mean that people aren't expecting to keep it for 3-4 years. $129 is still a lot of money to most people in the world - particularly where they are targetting this.
Interesting stuff, I created an App for Moves called CleverGeo (https://clevergeo.com), I'd love to hear any more thoughts on things that you find interesting from the Moves data. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to help.
Don't see why it is cheap to take a deal. I'm not a coupon addict, but my wife is one. Since she discovered Groupon she refuses to buy anything not on sale. I think its pretty smart, I'd do the same but it takes too much time and dedication to shop that way.

I can't recall the exact figures but the way Groupon's deal worked when they pitched me was a definite loss-maker. Groupon took their portion, the customer was required to get a massive headliner discount to make the deal look attractive. Effectively Groupon's proposition was for us to swallow a big loss to send them revenue.
I like a bargain but if the "bargain" means that a third party profits whilst I get to help send local businesses under then I can't take that offer. Sure for some types of business Groupon can work but they don't [didn't] only target those businesses.
Demanding unsustainable prices is "cheap" because it's not a proper saving. You end up paying for [your share of] the social welfare payments for the people that go out of business and the businesses no longer exist to serve you.
