I'm clearly missing something, as i understand it Uber drivers want the benefits of being a self employed driver, no expensive taxi license or extensive training to prove they're capable and trustworthy etc. and work the hours they want; but they want all the perks of being employees with holiday pay etc.

Does is apply to everyone or is it another thing that exempts politicians?
Given the estimated price it should be the best, even seems a little underwhelming given the cost.
shot yourself with vaping
Your vaping argument was weak, it isn't sold as a health product, it's generally being sold as a nicotine delivery system.
usa strikes again
I wonder how many of those judges now have down payments on a nice holiday home.
Why does an Android keyboard need to see your camera and log files – and why does it phone home to China?
what a crock
What do they mean they don't think its intentional? Do they think pixies changed the code while the devs were sleeping, of course it's all intentional. What they mean is it's blatant malware stealing data but they don't want to offend the Chinese.
MS were clueless
Microsoft were utterly clueless at every step, they created a nice phone OS that ran well on average hardware...then ran on the spot so their partners could release their offerings, which they eventually did half heartedly. Microsoft should have copied Apple and kept it all in house, setting a price they wanted on a release schedule that suited them instead of worrying about their so called 'partners'. Windows phone is now onto its third major OS upgrade with no upgrade path yet again for most users and special deals for US buyers that only served to alienate all other WP users; Sometimes it has seemed as if Microsoft was trying to fail.
seems a bit suspect
So they're going to build trust scores partly built by monitoring your surroundings, sounds like a back door way of having people track themselves, saving Google the hassle.
MS seem to be run by idiots
The sheer amount of money MS are wasting on its phones is amazing, they could have given them away cheaper.
where are the sue crazy americans when we need them?
Why haven't a group of annoyed Americans started a class action against MS yet? Their attitude with windows 10 is alienating a lot of people.
How come he didnt try stuffing her into the stasis pod?
I cant imagine anyone is surprised by this; Apple dont see the sheeple as valued customers, they're sheep there to be fleeced.
why are they having to manually enter the planes weight? surely they could have a system on the wheels that worked out how far the supports are being compressed to get the weight.
This isnt bait and switch, its just blatant lies. There is no other option in my area, a switch to BT would drop me from 150mb to 4mb.
The problem with windows 10 is Microsoft are taking over your pc, they're controlling when to push updates onto it without telling anyone what they do; This added to microsofts sudden belief they have the right to know everything you do with your pc is taking it too far.
it won't help him
The days are long gone since the USA obeys international laws and borders, first chance they get they'll snatch him.
Community service, that really showed him whos boss. He is.
Re: Sucked in, bad
the smaller the motor the noisier it gets, get a miele...they use big motors that make half the noise of most others.
Windows10 itself is fine, the problem is MS then decided to treat its users like morons and bolted on a ton of spyware and an update system that hides what it's doing.
Re: Sounds like common sense....
But the USA no longer feels it has to respect the laws of other countries, only its own.
Cameron and Osborne are selling the UK out to the Chinese, the UK is going to underwrite costs with a guaranteed market price, and no doubt we will foot the clean up bill...so what the hell are the Chinese bringing to this? other than potential jobs for a few bent politicians when they leave office?
MS are idiots
Microsoft seem to be increasingly clueless as time goes on, there isn't much that engenders bad feeling more that a policy of giving the biggest rebates to the people with the most money. Microsoft...alienating it's customers one dumb idea at a time.
No dear, the video chat is fine here, the problem must be on your end.
Surely this must count as criminal mischief, MS should be held liable for any problems people have because of it.
Yet another huge company shuffling the books to appear to make no money, they had money to buy oculus for over $2 billion though.
Glasgow buyers don't take kindly to the stupid type of US shenanigans of apple employees running about telling people to cheer and scream, they'd be told to f**k off pretty quickly.
It was never serious
Safe Harbor was always a joke, the simple fact was the USA got whatever it wanted cos everyones greedy and the voluntary arrangement was just designed to be a catch all so no-one could be held liable.
How are they getting these apps onto Apples appstore if you need a valid developer license to publish them onto the appstore?
sign of the times
And to think we used to have actual data protection laws.
Re: Interesting law to apply
Welcome to modern debate, either agree with the mob or be shouted down as a heretic.
Band Wagons Ho
The police were morons and the school totally over reacted, but i'm more disgusted by the band wagon jumping, why is the president involved?
Very one sided arguement
She seems to assume only men would use such a device. As per usual anything men do is perverse but vibrators connected to iphones etc are just good clean fun for women.
Case appears very flawed
We cant deny the guy is a moron but legally this whole case seems seriously flawed.
1. He wouldn't have been able to buy the gun if the US authorities weren't pretending to sell it which should be entrapment.
2. He has been charged under firearm laws when he isn't in possession of a firearm, he has a plastic toy, surely to make this charge stick they would have had to send him an actual gun.
Under this system of law, if i advertise a nuke for £100 but only send him a broken down PS1, he is guilty of having WMDs because that what he thought he was getting...this may be good enough for the US/UK governments but it shouldn't be good enough for a court of law.
Sylvester McCoy was worst but it wasn't all his fault, he got some truly awful scripts.
seems a bit unlikely
Why on earth would the USA give up control of the internets main DNS servers?
I'd call it...
Unnecessary. If you need a pro device than an IOS tablet is the wrong tool.
I dropped out of my ICT teaching course when i realised there would be the minimum of the most basic programming involved, it was clear i would be teaching what basically amounted to MS Office for beginners; Incredibly I would also have had to teach things that were patently wrong due to changes in technology, I just couldn't face years of that. It's incredibly unfair to blame the teachers, the bulk of what they teach is dictated to them, they only have leeway in how they teach it.
Where are the hackers when you need them?
Maybe some friendly hackers could make a tool to overwrite the hard coded addresses with some localhost redirects.
4g isnt ready
4G is still far too patchy to be used on anything critical, as an example i live in an area with no 4G, despite being less than 100metres from the boundary of the biggest city in Scotland.
"I should have stuck with my original butterfly tattoo idea"
They shouldn't be submitting work electronically unless its multimedia based, idle teachers will be producing a generation of people who can't write.
Re: Only 30% a week?
Just the way the tech press works, anything MS does sucks while apple could release an iphone that sets peoples hands on fire and they would lawd it as a new hand warming system.
I attended a talk a couple of months ago given by the guy who spearheaded early xbox development, he said the sad fact was most of the team were men simply because women didn't apply.
You can't fix the problem with 'affirmative action', that's simply reverse racism/sexism where the best person for job is excluded because they don't meet your quota.
You can trust benchmarks about as far as you can fart them; Various big names have been caught adding routines specifically to generate fake results to popular benchmarks.
Microsoft....working hard to screw up your system, when a BSOD just isn't good enough.
That casing looks the same as the low end Panasonic 4k screen, except the Panasonic supports HEVC for Netflix 4k and it uses active 3d.
The nVidia 970/980 cards are supposed to have HDMI 2.0 out.
Re: Failure on a practical but also a political level
Hopefully BT will be punished when one of the low orbit grids comes online, i live about 50 meters outside Glasgow boundary...the biggest city in Scotland, and there's no BT fibre in my area.
If you choose to live in the arse end of nowhere then you run the risk of poor services. Elon Musks plan for a low orbit satellite grid should solve the problem.
It doesn't matter that facial recognition has been around for ages, all Apple has to do is file in US patent office and prepare a Californian judge to back it up.
Re: Tempting for devs?
It gives you a 'cheap' entry point for dev work; it also gives you full access to the IOS app/game ecosystem but allows you to keep your old phone which is very likely to be a hell of a lot cheaper than an iphone contract.
