Thinking about PlayStation gifts, editor-attacking birds and more


Let’s play! After compromising my personal data and being down for almost a month, PlayStation Network is back. They’re trying to give me two free games, but what I really want is Netflix credits. —April Corbin, web content editor

Green with envy Gotta give props where they’re due—Greenspun Media Group’s Rebekah Zimlich ate two pounds of pickles in 5 minutes at Carnegie Deli’s competition last week, nearly setting a new women’s record! —Ken Miller, associate editor
