I think it's more than that. Not too long ago, Facebook acquired Karma (http://getkarma.com), which had quickly become one of my favorite services because they made gift-giving into a fun and dead-simple process. In fact, it was addictive - I remember sending at least three gifts within the first two weeks of downloading Karma on my iPhone. And since Karma was already built on top of Facebook's social graph, the acquisition made perfect sense and enhanced the overall experience even more for its small but loyal users. I think introducing a gift card was the next logical step to bring it to the mainstream.

Where does it say it was Anonymous? (You didn't say that, but the parent did).

Interesting, that is dated from August of last year (1 year ago). In fact there are several articles from that time, here is another one: http://www.treehugger.com/sustainable-product-design/rent-a-... which has a bit more detail.

But there isn't anything since then. And to me its even stranger that their homepage they don't mention the installation. So my take on that was this was a 'demo' and not a real installation. Can you tell me if there are any being commercially operated ?

I don't understand — why are adjustable desks so expensive? I can't imagine someone not being able to produce a more affordable alternative to a GeekDesk. If it's in the $200-$350 range, I'd buy it in a heartbeat.

The comments UI is the deciding factor for me as well. So far, the best implementation of this I have come across is cheeaun's Hacker News mobile web app: http://cheeaun.github.com/hnmobile/landing/

Depeche Mode is the name of band from the 80s. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Depeche_Mode

I know, and mentioned the band in my post. But that’s not a pun, that’s just a reference. For it to be a good name, doesn’t depeche have to have something to do with Dropbox?

How you snip the name from another 80's band and let the name... "Mmmmmmmmm... DROP!" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LnPQdrPnCpE :)

Something's "fishy" with this whole Dropbox vs. Google Drive thing: https://twitter.com/#!/SaadMalik/status/194838393874677760/p...

Lots of great tips here. I'd also suggest taking the time out to talk to your doctor. I was in a similar position as you -- my productivity fell immensely within the last two years. After speaking with my doctor, I was diagnosed with a minor form of ADHD. Now that I'm on some light meds (20mg Ritalin), I feel I can focus better and get more out of my time.
