Uber, Lyft and cutting corners: The true face of the Sharing Economy

el registrar

Actually they do reward reliable drivers

Not sure where you get the idea uber doesn't reward its reliable drivers. They get 2 forms of bonus - one for a minimum number of trips in a week (iirc it was 60 trips around London) and another bonus for being rated above 4.7 / 5.0 for the week by their customers (with a minimum number of trips for that too).

Since unreliable drivers likely get rated pretty poorly...

Re: 10,000 hours

Longest serving light bulb in the world currently approaching 1,000,000 hours ("at least" 110 years).

I don't think 10,000 hours is a stretch.

BT to end traffic throttling - claims capacity is FAT

el registrar
Thumb Down

So BE* are still the best?

Or can I really shift 4TB p/m over BT's "really we mean it this time promise we wont change the small print 1 month into your 18 month contract" offer?

Regardless of throttling, the only big name ISP I'd consider for fibre would be Sky. BT have burned me one too many times.

WTF?

How surprising - the single company with the biggest percentage of under-the-tree goodies also has the biggest percentage of return searches.

Seriously - how is basic maths newsworthy?

HTC reckons 'WinPho will give Android a run for its money'

Facepalm

No

You've clearly never used WinPho 7 then, Android is far more sluggish.

20 years from now it'll be the de facto stance to bash Apple; move on with the times. 2011 Microsoft are nothing like the 1991 Microsoft.
