so glad that noted GlassHole, Nick Starr, previously Tweeted that Apple would never do this, obviously he knows what he's talking about.

Nick Starr is not the ambassador that Google wants for Glass. Hence the reason they kicked him out of the Seattle group. He will of course cry foul and that he again was being mistreated.....

@59; I've read that article 3 times now and still can't draw the conclusion that Dan was calling for an end to Q-Patrol because it was needed. I think his comments in 2009 still ring true today, nobody is stepping up to restart something like Q-Patrol. Mostly, because the police have said they don't want it revived. Time I suppose for SoSea Seattle/Shaun Knittel to quit being chummy with the police and just start it up.

Don't need a "smart" phone, just one that can text. That is just about every phone on the planet I'd think.

Don't need a credit card. Debit card will do. There are a great many free options out there, I personally really like Bluebird by American Express. But there are other options.
Feb 26, 2014 nador commented on Did Uber Limit Supply of Drivers in Effort to Push Up Fares?.
10 miles @ $1.30/mile = $13.00
16 minutes @ .30/minute = $ 4.80
Base fare @ $2.14
20% Tip @ $4
Total trip from 1st & Columbia to the farthest reaches of West Seattle on UberX.....


vs taxi @ $20 + $4 tip = $24

UberX WINS!!!!!

@8; you are comparing a taxi fare to Uber Black when you should be comparing it to UberX. UberX is a TNC like Lyft, Sidecar, and East Side for Hire. The fare would be much less on UberX. It is only the TNC companies/contractors that would be affected by the upcoming regulations.

A) Who cares? If it (a particular "diet") works for you, great.
B) Vegetarians & Vegans push their "diets" with as much vigor as the Paleo crowd. CrossFit vs. Yoga. Again, Who cares.
C) Eat quality food in moderation. You'll be fine.

@17; the city of Seattle limits the number of licensed taxi cabs (medallions really). Here is a summary by Goldy a while back: "There are 928 licensed taxicabs in Seattle and King County, but nearly 6,000 licensed taxi drivers. This puts drivers at the mercy of a few hundred car owners, many of whom own multiple licenses."
