After using Uber to visit his mistress, a French businessman is suing the company after his wife received notifications of his trips and later filed for divorce.
The man had logged into his Uber account on his wife’s phone once, according to the BBC. Despite logging out, his wife continued to receive notifications related to his trips, which ultimately tipped her off to his affair. According to the man’s lawyer, the bug “has caused him problems in his private life.” The case is slated for a hearing this month.
According to Le Figaro, the man has sued Uber for a reported €45 million ($48 million). Uber France refused to comment on the case for Le Figaro, noting that the company “does not publicly comment on individual cases, and…
6 Shocking Tools Every Customer Service Rep Needs From Your Company In Order to Give Great Service
When Apple designed CarPlay for iOS, it decided to stick with a familiar paradigm: a home button that takes you to a simple home screen of icons. That’s not a terrible idea — the interface is simple and familiar to everybody, and you don’t want to be struggling with a touchscreen when you’re supposed to be keeping your eyes on the road.
However, think about the two main things you have on a car dashboard: you glance at a map and you control your music. Currently, in order to switch between those tasks you have to tap twice: once for home, and then again for the other app. That’s not a huge problem, but it does mean extra time looking away from the road. It also could be a hassle if you don’t recall where your music app icon is (or if…
Saturday Night Live is enjoying its highest ratings in over 20 years, despite lending absolutely no credence to the argument that comedy might improve under the Trump administration.
Of course SNL always feels most relevant when political stakes are high, but the buzz around the show has reached a new pitch in recent months because of how directly it affects our thin-skinned new president. He spent some of the first weeks of his time as president-elect tweeting about Alec Baldwin’s “unwatchable” impression of him and referring to the whole cast as “terrible” and “not funny.” Though it is probably always the case that politicians will tune into SNL to see how they’re being ridiculed, Trump is the first to complain about it week after…
Two weeks ago, Sidd Bikkannavar flew back into the United States after spending a few weeks abroad in South America. An employee of NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL), Bikkannavar had been on a personal trip, pursuing his hobby of racing solar-powered cars. He had recently joined a Chilean team, and spent the last weeks of January at a race in Patagonia.
Bikkannavar is a seasoned international traveller — but his return home to the US this time around was anything but routine. Bikkannavar left for South America on January 15th, under the Obama Administration. He flew back from Santiago, Chile to the George Bush Intercontinental Airport in Houston, Texas on Monday, January 30th, just over a week into the Trump Administration.
Star Trek: Deep Space Nine stands out from the other series in the franchise as a more mature and serious take on the final frontier. Now, Ira Steven Behr, who served as showrunner for the series for most of the show, is teaming up with Adam Nimoy to produce a documentary looking back on the history of Deep Space Nine, and they’re turning to Indigogo to fund it.
The film, called What We Left Behind (a reference to the final episode of the series, “What You Leave Behind”) has already blown past the original $150,000 goal in just under a day.
While Star Trek documentaries are fairly commonplace, What We Left Behind stands out from the sheer amount of official talent associated with the show that it’s promising to bring in. Along with…
Lucid Motors, the small-but-ambitious electric car startup based in Menlo Park, California, is holding an exclusive event in Los Angeles this weekend to show off its first production model, the all-electric, 1,000-horsepower Air. The company’s engineers and designers will be on hand at the Peterson Automotive Museum to discuss the car’s finer details, as well as offer rides in their engineering prototype. (We got to take one for spin during CES last month, and it left us scrambling to come up with new words for “fast.”)
But before they tearing off camouflage, the team at Lucid took a trip to Minnesota for a leisurely drive through some snow covered forests. Just kidding! The…
