How to keep google from associating my work account with stupid youtube videos?

I use multiple google accounts, and their multiple sign-in feature is generally very helpful to me. I have a work google domain account, managed by my company, and a personal google account. Lately, when I have gone to youtube or google voice, it often associates to my work account, which I do not want. I'd prefer that my work account is only associated with gmail. Is this possible?

What a drag.

It's possible to drag a message to a label in GMail by grabbing it from the leftmost edge. However, on a hi-res monitor, this can be quite difficult. Is there a hack or greasemonkey script that allows you to drag the message by clicking and dragging anywhere in the Subject rather than just the left edge?

Any port in a cell phone storm?

Currently, I have a Virgin Mobile PAYG smartphone. I'd like to get a phone on my family's Sprint plan instead (for the same monthly price as Virgin, I can get unlimited whatever). However, Sprint says they can't port my phone number because Virgin is a reseller of theirs. I've heard that you can port your number to Google Voice for a small fee, and then have Sprint port the number to a Sprint phone, but this advice was found on a forum somewhere and no one backed up the claim that it actually worked. Would it work? Have you done this? I'd really like to keep my phone number, and before I risk losing it, I'd like to know. Thanks.

HELP: google contacts seems to be psychotic!

Google contacts seems to be getting increasingly problematic for me. In some contact records, I have over a dozen random email addresses assigned to a contact (that have no relation at all). In others, the contact email is legitimate, but is now named after some individual I have never ever had any form of contact with, apparently through some google+ functionality (I have not signed up for google+). Aside from ditching this increasingly crappy platform, any advice how it make this work? I cant see hand fixing thousands of contacts....
