Ps. that bluray comes out digitally July 31st and physically Aug 14th.

Lyft is giving us a quiet button!

Lyft-796x398

Lyft, the rideshare company you use to get you home the bars, or at least I do, is considering testing a zen mode.  In case you’re more of an introvert and just wanna get to your destination, Lyft wants to make your rides more personalized so the driver knows to either leave you alone or chat it up.
