Re: One thing I am intrigued by...
From what I recall of the original Nanny article here on the Reg, she was a bit rubbish at nannying, and rather good at fact recall and finding out useful stuff.
I think she was a plant: an undercover PI placed by Google to dig up some dirt. And the perfect recall? Recording device. Heck, probably had his whole house bugged.
That would make the law suit she's bringing a cunning sham to get the dirt into the public eye and nicely discredit Kalanickers.
