I suspect it would be much more then 15%: Speak to any cabbie, they make the vast amount of their money on Friday/Saturday night, but work the rest of the week because the licence owner requires that. If random joe with a car that he uses for other purposes decides to make some extra money on the weekend, I suspect he will be able to charge much less.
Why not give the people the choice? If über is so bad, peopel won't use it.
I'd much rather spend a bit more time in traffic then spend a bunch more money.
You would think MADD would support deregulation of the taxi industry. Afterall, a big reason people drink and drive is because of the high cost of cabs. It's almost as if they care more about keeping people from drinking them keeping them safe...
I read about this one a while back:
It's pretty amazing how it works, I didn't know anything nearly this advanced was around until I accidnetly stumled across its wikipedia page.
I did exactly that and it worked well for the 120BG drive I tried it on. I attached a USB PATA adapter onto it, then a power supply that came with the adapter, put a ziploc bag around that, sucked the air out, put tape around the opening where the wires came out. Closed the freezer door with the wires sticking out and waited an hour before hooking the drive up. No point in doing it while the drive is out of the freezer since they heat up fast. Best to do it where the cold air comes out and turn the temp down as far as it will go too.
In my case, I think it was the electronics heating up that was the problem, not a mechanical issue, but it worked.
There was a nice, slide-out keypad option for IBM Ultrabay laptops. I'm not sure if you can get it for the newer versions of Ultrabay, but one could maybe modify an old one to work with the new Ultrabay standard.
Yup, the Fujitsu ScanSnap 1500M is amazing. Never jams, great OCR software, VERY fast.
You can just toss in receipts and odd sized documents, handles them all fine.
Not just in this case, but in general for medical implants. Sure it is heavier, but it is much stronger, just as corrosion resistant, and non-magnetic.

It seems unnecessary to make things nosier for everyone when the number of people that need the noise is very small. Why not just have an electronic transponder system so that people can know where cars are relative to them. It would even work on vibration for those that are blind and deaf. It could give out more information, like speed and direction, and it it could work from further away if necessary.
From looking at the leaked slide, they are getting rid of Altavista which has more meaning for me. Delicious as just another Web 2.0 company, but Altavista was an early pioneer on the web and could have easily been what Google is now.
