Lyft is almost as bad as Uber.

I've talked to people who've worked both places, and Uber sounds like it's a special circle of hell.

 They’re both built on the concept that if they spend enough investor capital they will eventually have a monopoly.

I use the train to get to the airport, or I drive myself and pay for parking at park and ride.

Because fuck those clowns.

Uber in Bangkok is a god send considering how shitty the cab drivers have gotten.

By the way, the asshole who was the founder of Juicero is now making the news for spreading an even worse idea: "raw water".

I read that and was again dumbfounded by the rarefied air in that Silicon Valley bubble.

He didn't start the trend but he is trying to cash in on the "alt water" trend (his is not exactly "raw water" as the term is currently being used) by selling a system to collect water vapor: https://www.zeromasswater.com/

As a kid the best water I ever tasted was "raw" Sierra mountain runoff water and a bunch of us got sick from it. The place we were staying even warned us before hand not to drink from streams and rivers but we had to try it anyways with the inevitable results.

Kodak's stock jumped 77% yesterday because they announced a new cryptocurrency.

Quote
KodakCoins will work as tokens inside the new blockchain-powered KodakOne rights management platform. The platform will supposedly create a digital ledger of rights ownership that photographers can use to register and license new and old work. Both the platform and cryptocurrency are supposed to “empower photographers and agencies to take greater control in image rights management,” according to the press release. The digital currency is meant to create a new economy for photographers to receive payment and sell work on a secure platform.

As a photographer, I can tell you that the digital rights problem that needs solving is not 'buyers purchasing from legitimate creators'. Stock agencies and photo buyers are already pretty good at handling rights. Also why is everyone suddenly going to get locked into a proprietary purchase system using cryptocurrency as tokens, when places like Getty Images, iStock, Adobe Stock and literally hundreds more well-known sites exist that take regular currency?

Kodak also announced a dedicated Bitcoin mining rig that you can rent for $3400 for a 2 year contract. They send the rig to their partner who plug it in and operate it for you and you get 50% of all the Dunning-Krugerrands that it mines in that time.  swamp poop

Kodak is desperately trying to find a business model since they got obsoleted by digital formats. It's probably an interesting study in how a corporate entity exists on brand name alone.
