In an effort to improve passenger safety, Uber has updated its Family Profiles feature with the ability to track riders in your closed group from the time they hop in a cab to the moment they reach their destination.The Trip Tracker feature will let you know when one of your loved ones are taking a cab and show you the route they re taking in real-time on a map.That should bring some peace of mind to people who are worried about their spouses, children or parents traveling through the city by themselves.In addition, Family Profiles lets you take care of the bill instead of charging the passenger.That s handy when you share a credit card with other members of your family.Uber says it s now made Trip Tracker available to users across the globe.
Get concessions from Prime Minister Narendra Modi's governmentApple has applied to the Indian government for permission to import refurbished iPhones so that it can offer lower-priced phones to the Indian user.The company's phones are considered too expensive by India's price-sensitive users, even though the iPhone is a well-regarded brand and a status symbol in the country.More than two-thirds of the smartphones shipped in the first quarter were assembled within the country, with over 25 vendors making phones locally, according to IDC.Help increase smartphone penetration in IndiaGrowth in China is slowing, with research firm Canalys reporting that smartphone shipments grew by only 2 percent year-on-year in the first quarter.The Indian smartphone market will never grow to the size of China's because of the population's low average per-capita income, high taxes and the appreciation of the U.S. dollar against the Indian rupee, Kiranjeet Kaur, research manager at IDC Asia-Pacific, said in an interview recently.Also, unlike in the U.S. and some other markets where the majority of phones are sold through carriers, in India carriers focus on services rather than offering phones, thus putting demands on Apple to quickly roll out its distribution channels to markets outside the main cities.
Flights are getting cheaper this year, but prices vary depending on your destination.To figure out whether a flight is actually a good deal, Luiz Maykot, a data science analyst for Adobe, came up with a simple formula.The formula is pretty straightforward: multiply the trip s round-trip miles by $0.032, then add $230.Maykot explains how he came up with the formula:I calculated the average price paid by everyone in the data sample, based on how many days in advance they purchased their tickets up to 300 days in advance .Put simply, the number you crunch gives you a general idea of what the majority of flight prices have been in recent years.MarketWatch explains the formula in a little more detail and also includes a calculator to help you do the math, so check out the full post at the link below.

Amid the clamour over genetically modified crops, there s an underlying point that s still being missed: nobody really knows what constitutes a genetically modified crop.A new report from the National Academies of Sciences attempts to synthesise more than 900 existing research studies on GM crops into a single analysis.Attempts to determine what is and isn t a GM crop have yet to come up with any clear definition of where to draw the line.Many of the resulting hybrids like broccoli or bananas have been around for so long that they rarely trip the GM alarm.It s this blurred distinction that the report s authors cite when making their ultimate recommendation to evaluate GM crops as individual products, not as a technological process.The truth is that food safety for any crop needs to be monitored at every point in the supply chain — in the field, in the packing plants, and in our kitchens and restaurants.
Rolled out on Tuesday to users around the world, Trip Tracker lets you follow a family member s ride in real time so you ll know exactly how the journey is progressing.Whether you have a spouse traveling for work, a daughter heading home from college, or a parent going to a doctor s appointment – ensuring your loved ones are taken care of when you re not together extends beyond just covering the cost of a ride, Uber said in a post announcing the feature, adding, So, the next time one of your family members is headed out, you ll know when they are on their way, which route they are taking, and when they ve arrived.Of course, it could also be a useful way to find out exactly when your partner s going to walk through the door, handy if you re prepping dinner … or watching a TV show when you should be doing something more productive.Tapping the notification takes you to a map so you can follow the ride s progression toward its destination.Oh, and you don t actually have to be related – Uber lets you decide who s family.The company describes the service as a way to help loved ones, friends, or coworkers get where they want to go while you foot the bill, which sounds pretty darn great if you re the one who s not paying, that is .
If your family uses Uber to get around, you can now have a little more peace of mind by following your family members trips in real time.Uber is introducing a new safety feature that can notify you whenever a member of your Family Profile takes a car, and then you can even follow their trip on a map in real time.Uber introduced Family Profiles earlier this year, enabling users to share one payment method so you could, for example, pay for all of your daughter or son s fares if you re a parent.Of course, you can add anyone to a shared account, whether they re a friend or colleague or loved one.You could already share real time maps of your trip if you chose to, but this new Trip Tracker feature is designed particularly with families in mind.If I was a parent of a teen I know I d find some relief in my parental smartphone panopticon.
By the end of the 90-minute special, it s really not clear what Geraldo believes is going on within the Satanic underground, or if he even believes it exists at all.Set in Charleston, South Carolina, Exorcism introduces Abby, a working-class loner who s befriended maybe even rescued by Gretchen, a too-sheltered rich kid who bonds with Abby during a disastrous early- 80s birthday party.A few years later, the now-teenaged chums find their long-time bond challenged after a one-off acid trip, during which Gretchen disappears into darkened woods.The corpse in question is that of a largely average high-school jock whose suicide upends a rural Pennsylvania town—but whose death also brings together the unadventurous Hannah with Lacey, a class-cutting, chain-smoking, Kurt Cobain-obsessed alternakid who draws Hannah out of her happily PG existence and into a dizzying spree-turned-spiral of drugs, parties and, eventually, some blood-drenched, semi-Satanic antics.It s a decision that leads to Lacey being accused of Satanic tendencies, and that finally brings all three girls, guided by sinister motivations, to the same woods where their former classmate turned up dead.Like Exorcism s Abby and Gretchen, Fire s Lacey and Hannah are outsiders whose relationship flourishes in an environment of latchkey laissez faire-ness and shenanigans-inspiring boredom.

On Tuesday, Uber launched a new feature called Trip Tracker, enabling users to track their family members' rides with the service.The Trip Tracker is part of another Uber feature called Family Profiles, which lets you add other riders to a joint family profile, with rides billed to the profile organizer.The idea behind the feature is to track your family members in real time.Then, you'll be able to follow the ride's progress on the map inside the Uber app see below .The Trip Tracker is a welcome safety-related feature from Uber, which has often been under fire for not doing enough to make sure its customers are safe.In April, Uber agreed to pay $10 million to settle California prosecutors' allegations it misled customers about the background checks it performs on drivers.
The Trip Tracker update will automatically let family members and other loved ones follow each others Uber trips in real-time.Family Profiles, which Uber announced in March, allows users to group up to 10 family members – or friends – onto one account so they can foot the bill for their rides.The new feature will provide details of each person s trip to whoever is in charge of the Family Profile with a notification and the option to view a live map showing the vehicle s route.The ability to share real-time maps of Uber journeys has been around for a while, thanks to the Share my ETA feature, but this requires users to select which people they want to receive the information.The new feature is intended for situations such as when parents use Uber to send their child to school and want to monitor their progress, or making sure an elderly relative gets home okay.Following an initial launch in a handful of markets, including Atlanta, Dallas, and Phoenix, Family Profiles are now available in every market where Uber operates.
Other inventions NASA science has created include the pacemaker, scratch-resistant lenses and the solar panel.As we enter the transhumanist age — the era of bionic limbs, brain implants and artificial intelligence — space exploration might once again dramatically lead us forward in discovering the most our species can become.The hope, of course, is that within the next 10-15 years, astronauts will be stepping foot upon the red planet, too.That may sound low, but it also adds up when extrapolated to century-scale.Experts say it will soon be possible to mine asteroids from space — some that are worth billions of dollars each.This type of thinking should be a priority for whoever ends up in Congress and the White House come 2017.
Expedia Inc. s chief executive officer is expecting more company in the world of online travel booking, predicting Facebook Inc. will follow Google into the business.Facebook is already working on e-commerce, letting users save their payment information on the social media giant s site and purchase products they see advertised there directly through buy buttons.Google now lets users book trips and lodging directly through its search engine, a feature the U.S. Justice Department cited when it approved Expedia s takeover of Orbitz last year, saying Google was increasing competition.The development would bring both risks and opportunities for Expedia and rivals, Khosrowshahi said.For years, hotel companies have tried to find ways to drive more sales through their own websites so they can avoid the premiums paid to the likes of Priceline and Expedia when customers book lodgings and trips through them.If Facebook pushes into travel booking it will most likely follow Google s lead, building a tool that lets hotel chains and online travel agents show up in search results on the social network, Dan Wasiolek, an analyst with Morningstar Inc., said in an interview.This new targeted advertising platform in theory is supposed to offer a better way to target travelers when they re planning a trip and when they re in the destination, Henry Harteveldt, founder of the travel industry research firm Atmosphere Research Group, said in an interview.Travel companies including Hyatt Hotels Corp. and Air France-KLM are using Facebook s Messenger application to talk to customers.So is Expedia, said John Morrey, vice president and general manager of Expedia U.S. That s another area that Facebook could expand its presence in, Harteveldt said, either by getting more companies to do business on Messenger or building its own booking tool in the app.Expedia, which celebrated its 20th anniversary last week, went on a $6 billion acquisition spree in 2015 by buying Orbitz and vacation rental company HomeAway.Startups like GetYourGuide GmbH, Vayable Inc. and Peek Travel Inc. have raised venture capital for their own tour-booking websites and applications.
You see he d just activated his Apple Music subscription and as a result iTunes had then promptly deleted his entire 122GB music library.You see iTunes is a great piece of software but it appears as though something random and entirely inexplicable had taken place on James computer.Apple noticed said blog and got in touch with Pinkstone, originally just with the intention that they could fix or explain what had happened over the phone.In a follow up blog post which you can read here , James explains the surreal and fascinating time he spent with those engineers Tom & Ezra as they trawled his computer for clues as to what had caused the issue.Apple has since launched a new version of iTunes which not only updates the app s features but reportedly now fixes this bug.While Pinkstone proclaims that his experience shouldn t be seen as revelatory it s hard not to be a little impressed that Apple went above and beyond, and even you re feeling cynical it looks like the trip did end with something having been learnt.
In February 1493, Christopher Columbus described his historic journey of the previous year in a letter to the king and queen of Spain.The US Immigration and Customs Enforcement says the $1.1 million "Plannck II" copy donated to the Library of Congress in 2004 was being delivered to Italy after an investigation found it was stolen from Florence's Riccardiana Library and replaced with a high-quality photocopy decades ago, per the Local and Delaware News Journal.After a researcher finally detected the forgery in 2012, authorities received a tip that the real one was in Washington.Among other things, researchers detected bleach on the Library of Congress' copy, suggesting that the Riccardiana Library's stamp was once there but had been removed."It is interesting how 500 years after the letter was written it has made the same trip back and forth from America," says Italy's culture minister, per NBC News.This article originally appeared on Newser: After Decades-Old Theft, 1493 Columbus Letter Is ReturnedMore From Newser
