    Seattle Considers Allowing Uber And Lyft Drivers To Unionize

    If Uber was still the same price as a taxi I would defer to Uber. Better cars, nicer drivers, overall improved experience. The fact that it is cheaper? That just makes it a no brainer. Legislation / Unionization should increase prices. Ideally it would distribute the wealth (yeah, I said it)...

    States Pass Laws Backing Uber's View Of Drivers As Contractors

    Employees fill out a W4 to receive a W2 at the end of the year. Service jobs are a-ok. It is a great avenue for more extroverted people to work in. Not everybody wants to be a programmer or mechanic.

    States Pass Laws Backing Uber's View Of Drivers As Contractors

    Thanks to a vague rating system , Uber has full control over their drivers. This is not by mistake either. Drivers are way closer to W2 than employees with the level of control Uber exerts over it's drivers. Have you driven for or read about the experiences these drivers have? They have no...

    Thinking about buying myself a Mac with retina...

    My experience has been that Apple will release a 2nd gen Haswell MBP roughly 6 months after releasing the first. If you can holdout for that one, it is usually the best. I bought within the first two months of my 2011 MBP and I was burned on the SATA ports. One is Sata 2 the second is sata 3...

    laptop with the best display for $500?

    Look at something used or save more money. If you plan to keep it for such a long period of time it would be well worth it to spend more, even if it meant saving. The longer you wait the more your money will buy with technology.

    Wouldn't such lawsuit claims be placed in the proper order of claims against Kodak? Sounds reasonable for the suit to continue provided it received proper treatment in order of claims. Is anything left for the shareholders? Please enlighten me.
