So, https://intended.god/ ?
The bottom part of the display is not actually a screen and makes the circle around the display look like a flat tire at the bottom.
This shows it pretty well:
(still the best looking of the smartwatches, imo)
Not all medallions are priced the same. Look it up yourself. Or, keep replying with curses if it makes you feel better. You clearly are having trouble comprehending some of this.
That "basic licensing requirement" has nothing at all to do with safety.
Which license? I think if you can show a license that does just amount to graft, then any reasonable person would get on board with the idea that license is bad regulation. Except, the person you are replying to, specifically mentioned safety.
Neither argument can really be assessed unless concrete specifics are used. While most of TFA mentions "unfair competition" if you click through and read about the original German injunction they mention this:
The court in Frankfurt found that Uber posed unfair competition to the local taxi industry. It said Uber did not have the necessary licenses and insurance for its drivers and noted that the company could be selective in providing rides, while taxi drivers are required to accept anyone needing a ride.
To me, at least from these articles, it's a little hard to tell what's in the German rules for taxis. Do you have some info on this? To me it looks like one shady unethical business is bitching about another shady and unethical business, and one has an app. There is a lot of talk about 'complying with the regulations' in the articles, then a lot of slashdotters calling that regulation bullshit, but no mention of what the regulations actually are. So how do you know they are bullshit? Or are you just arguing on a political / emotional level?
But some people want to government to control all the things, and any excuse will do.
Beat up that straw man, yo.
You know, it's kinda shocking your karma isn't in the toilet. Your post is not only trollish flaimbait, it's borderline nonsensical.
Still, the curse at the end made you sound internet-tough.
This line is always trotted out by people who dont understand NYC medallions. Like it's "ooooh big scary number!"
That price is for a business medallion is purchased by a company that runs the car 24 hours a day in 3 shifts bringing in $300,000 / yr. or more.
I didnt call them exploitative -- that was some troll AC a few posts up. I'm just saying that not caring if they were, is a bad argument.
Frankly, your post is full of hyperbole too though. It would be nice if we could drop the BS and have a discussion. (I know, I know this is slashdot and all). But if you are going to make specific claims, "48 hour shifts" in (weasel word) "many" markets -- it'd be nice if you had a source. Was just reading at 48 hours without sleep you start having involuntary micro-sleeps followed by disorientation, no matter the activity. Scary thought. http://www.everydayhealth.com/...
I have been cheated by nearly every cab driver I've ever used, had them refuse to accept payment from my wife, etc. None of that is even possible on Uber.
See, that's a pretty reasonable argument for why you support and use Uber. I may not totally agree, (I have mixed feeling about Uber personally), but that would have been a valid point. Instead you went with... "it doesn't even matter if Uber is exploitive"
If you actually want to promote something, might want to find a better line of reasoning than 'they can scorch the earth, as long as it works for me'.

So you welcome
I really liked Fringe but Revolution and Falling Skies were pretty bad, agreed.
I mean to each his/her own, but I was truly shocked at how bad The After was after watching just the one pilot.
