Comment Re:Promotional Pricing (Score 1) 84

Well, was already planning on switching to T-Mobile, if they don't give us the deal we want at Sprint we will continue with that plan. We're adding a line, which should be justification enough- at the local Sprint store they're pretty flexible. We're off contract so we can just walk away if we want to.

Comment Promotional Pricing (Score 3, Informative) 84

From TFA:

... until the promotional pricing expires on March 31, 2018. After which pricing goes up to $160 a month for the same four lines.

Still not bad pricing for a year. Was just looking into switching away, this adds more weight to staying. Hope they improve their network soon, otherwise it won't be a price-based decision.

The surface temperature there is 470C (878F), approximately 90 times that of Earth.

I don't even want to know...

So Google says the average temperature on Earth is 16 C, or 289.3 K. 90x that is about 26,000 K.

The article (yes, I looked at it) actually says the pressure is about 90 times that on Earth.

Submission + - Obama commutes Chelsea Manning sentence (

techtech writes: President Barack Obama has commuted Chelsea Manning's sentence for leaking documents to Wikileaks in 2010.
The 29-year-old transgender US Army private, born Bradley Manning, will be freed on 17 May instead of her scheduled 2045 release.
She was sentenced to 35 years in 2013 for her role in leaking diplomatic cables to the anti-secrecy group.
The leak was one of the largest breaches of classified material in US history.

Maybe Uber is planning on selling the cars to people who would then make it available to Uber when they're not using it? They could offer incentives on rate, priority, etc. to make it more attractive. Drivers have to buy a car anyway.

If Uber doesn't provide self-driving cars, someone else will. Not surprising they want to get a head start on this.
