Yeah, start from *off* the screen. Put your finger on the home button and then slide it up.
commented on Council Should Take Thoughtful, Deliberate Approach Toward Taxi Regulations
I'm fine with whatever solution emerges as long as it means that I never have to talk to a Yellow Cab dispatcher again for as long as I live. What Uber offers me over taking a taxi is convenience and a significantly improved experience as a customer.
I hate arguing with taxi drivers over accepting my credit card
I hate having to call back the dispatcher because they didn't tell me how long it *might* be before a car comes before they hung up
I hate having other people snag my taxi
I hate having my taxi just not show up
Uber fixes all of that for me. I think their founder, Travis, is a raging Randian douchebag, but what his company offers is *so* much better than the alternative that I just don't care.
commented on What Do You Think About the New iPhone Announcement?
AAPL always drops after a big announcement like this. It's like the market expects a free unicorn to be bundled in with every new iPhone or something.
In all seriousness, though, the 5C is going to be unbelievably huge. If Apple can keep up with demand, I bet they sell 8-10 million of those alone in the first weekend (in comparison, the iPhone 5 did 5mm its first weekend).
