Super Cali goes ballistic, Uber Pool is bogus: Ride sharing biz is illegal in the state, says regulator
Re: It wasn't supposed to be this way
>Car sharing for profit without a licence is illegal.
This case goes one further, it's car sharing with individual passengers paying different fares to go to different stops. That is known as a bus.
It's like my plan for people who have never met to get together at an airport and share a ride in a plane, each paying a bit toward the trip. Smoking is allowed, as are electronic devices and you can take all the liquids, sharp knives and guns you want without having to do all the TSA stuff because we aren't an airline we are just ride sharing a plane.
Re: Gut feeling?
Or it will be packed in a case and hidden at the back of a giant warehouse.

Re: Is it safe...
What Boris ? Yes but don't use it three times or it may summon him.
Re: moving for tax reasons?
Careful comments like that can get you into trouble ......
Sir, we have reports of somebody in London Englandshire mentioning "jellied eels" on their phone - could be a terrorist code word.
Closer to their customers
Presumably more of Amazon's customers and authors live in London than live in Slough.
It's obviously important for a company to be close to both its suppliers and customers.

Also known as a teenager with a parent ?
Re: APPLE STORE LIVERPOOL
They would also get to sample the fast and efficient phone recycling service offered by the local scallies outside the Apple store.
Maybe not necessary - but it is a sacred duty for a follower of the righteous path of the black polo neck
Re: It's excellent
It is excellent - and I have a hardback on order, just as I have the paperback of the cartoons.
But exactly what is the point of an electronic version of a set of blog posts that are already online?
Other than Randall's tip jar - why collect a bunch of bits that are freely available online, zip them and charge $15?
It's hard to go to an advertiser and say you have an audience of millions, with names like ButtFace97 and SharonZaSlag
But if you can tie their facebook stuff to their Amazon purchases, their credit card and medical records you can target slag products specifically at Sharon
Re: the public was never in danger
I doubt there was a bundle of sticks of dynamite in the suitcase.
There may have been a few grams of explosive in one pocket of the suitcase.
Do you check all the pockets of a backpack everytime you fly?
Exactly the same statements were made about television - with the additional problem that TV was very expensive and would only ever be available to a small number of users.
I wonder if anyone ever made any money out of that TV stuff ?
Or should it be more worried that Scottish sympathizers could continue working undercover in the heart of Cheltenham as moles (or possibly Salmonds) ?
Re: Celine Dion ...
So is it known as doing a Connery or doing a Dion ?
Re: Proof of the gateway theory
Or Radical Islam is a gateway to fundamentalism Celine Dion ?
RE: So, why the hemming and hawing?
Because the purpose is to allow the electricity board to charge more - and then charge you £200 to fit the means to charge you more.
They installed them here to allow for "dynamic market rate adjustment" - so if its a hot day and there is a big demand for AC in the city they can just put up the price of your power for a few hours. Or if the market rate means that your local windpower could be sold as "green tariff" power in Germany for more than you are currently paying they can increase your price to the market rate.
Re: Nail on head.
Except they signed such piss poor deals with the production companies that they can't offer the shows to foreigners
- Obviously the BBC had no real negotiating power, merely controlling access to the airwaves, to be able to negotiate with such hard nosed titans of industry as the makers of "cash in the attic"
Re: BBC Worldwide

Or saying BBC employees are probably pedophiles
Re: The funny thing
I think Bayer saw something like this response to their Heroin(tm) product
Re: What is sad about this?
Perhaps that is the new product. The iKiosk comes with a 42" screen, 7.1 speaker surround, indefinite battery life with permanent charging and gigabit networking.
Admittedly it is a little less portable than previous products - but it does have rounded corners

Strangely enough it is the very definition of GDP - doing this presumably helps the economy
Re: not a Delivery?
Magic fairy dust needs renewing every night - I thought everyone knew that
Re: Couple of words about the Swiss
You can trust the Swiss to act in the best interests of the Swiss.
If Snowden's revelations mean that Eu customers don't trust US hosted cloud services and Eu govts ban US safe harbour provisions then where would you trust as a cloud service hosting county.
Switzerland for example?
Re: direct flight
And Russia could retaliate by banning that country's airlines from flying over Russia.
It's a long way for Air France or Lufthansa to the far east if they have to go west.
Re: needs more tuners
Is there anywhere in the world where you could conceivably have 6 broadcast shows that you would to watch - let alone broadcast simultaneously ?

Re: i don't understand
But if you had never heard of any of the celebs (I hadn't) then presumably they have less value than regular porn ?

Re: Not wishing to be pedantic
The designer put the retina in backwards so the interface cable is in the middle of the screen - then did a software patch so nobody would notice. Typical weekend bodge job really.
Re: Pegging order?
>Who the fck is Dan Savage and why is his column so worthy of inspection?
The gentleman in question is an amusing disclaimer of straightforward, honest, factual, helpful, and somewhat frank advice on matters of an anatomical nature for discerning gentlemen in a number of non-Murdoch periodicals on the West Coast of his Majesty's former colony.

More thefts of iPhone /Blackberry are reported
How many young men of a lower albedo are likely to go into a police station to report a theft?
So these are thefts are logged by Apple's iFind-iMy-iPhone-iAnd-iLock-iIt feature or corporate blackberries

Re: False analogy
"We wouldn’t stand idly by if paintings worth hundreds of millions of pounds were being stolen from the National Gallery"
But we would have rules making it illegal for a visitor from a region 3 country viewing a painting in a region 2 gallery. Even if it had been originally stolen from their country by us.

Re: No wonder...
And according to Mr Gates - windows admin jobs pay crap.
Apparently even though their study showed you need far fewer admins on Linux and didn't have to pay for any licenses your TCO would be much higher on Linux because of the highly paid specialists you would need.
Re: Unsustainable and unrealistic my a**e
1, and you have security here when the firm closes down or outsources you?
Plus side is that you aren't behind 10 layers of managers who are useless but have been there too long to get rid of.
2, true but I work in startups so never get to take even that
3, sucks to be poor in the US. But after I got made redundant in the UK I tried to claim dole to get back some of my 40% tax - no chance. I got a fraction of my unpaid final months pay refunded.
You can make management without having been to Eton. Even Geordies sound posh here.
Jobs outside the city pay well
You get to work on real stuff - not just another NHS/gov IT disaster project
Re: Chromebook competitor - not really
If windows 8 allows you to fix grandparents computer over the phone so you are sure that all viruses, extra toolbars and broken settings are fixed then its an improvement
Re: Shurely shome mishtake - ed
I have worked there, most of it is under a lot of snow every winter.
High areas in the middle of continents tend to have extremes of hot dry summers and cold winters.

"net zero energy" facility, / discounted energy supplies from Nevada for the next eight years. ????
You mean he will get to sell the unreliable occasional solar electricity for 4-5x the regular price as a feed-in tariff subsidized by the same regular customers who will be paying for the free 24x7 reliable supply he is getting from the state?
Re: Well said
Tim is wrong that a $400 iWatch isn't a status symbol in the same way a $10K Rolex is - it's more of a status symbol.
A $10K Rolex on somebody under 40 means that daddy is/was rich.
An iWatch means you are not only at least comfortably off - it means you are high-tech/high-skill/modern techno-literate pillock.
That is more status than being the recipient of a trust fund.
Silicon valley started because there was masses of land in California's orange groves almost for free.
Then WWII lead to a huge demand for electronics and components for the local aerospace industry. This attracted lots of engineers, as did the local world class tech universities.
Bill Hewlett and Dave Packard went there to get jobs and started HP in their garage which grew into a $Bn company which later employed Steve Wozniak who started his own company in his garage which grew into a $Bn company ....
While we have some overpriced office space in a couple of warehouses in a fashionable bit of Central London where a few media types sell imagineering services to each other.
It would make you laugh if you weren't crying.
Some well informed MPs
>many remain ignorant of what the thing does or is supposed to do;
> another four per cent claimed Tech City has had no impact
So the few who HAD heard of it correctly identified that it would have no impact
