I have said it before and this is just another proof that the days of regular taxi services are numbered. 

Well not completely, there will still exist for a long time but they will be drastically reduced in size and will be more of the UBER type and not the regular taxi services you see around you today.

For those that do not know Waze, this is an app that regular commuters have on their dashboard on their way back and from work. Why do we need a GPS navigation app on if we know our rout like the back of our hands , you ask?

Simple...

Because it is a crowdsourcing wonder. Drivers work collaboratively to tell other drivers of impending dangers on the road like cars stopped, accidents, police scanners and more importantly -- traffic.

For traffic, users do not even have to actively report it, the app is able to deduce from your average speed if you are in a congestion and will alert and automatically re-route other waze users to their destination through the least congested path.

When I leave home I simply turn on the app and it automatically suggests that I am leaving to my place of work. I do not even have to touch the screen and I am off. The app know me, knows my commuting patterns and locations and so ... when I heard about this new development of carpooling by Waze I was not the least bit surprised.

Waze knows their drivers well... it knows where we are driving to and at what times, so they and can act as the middleman to find our perfect car-pooling match.  

This is the future to get our roads less congested and decrease pollution and at the same time save people a lot of money in fuel.

It all is part of a society increasingly turning to a sharing of goods and services instead of a purchasing them.

This new sharing economy will disrupt many markets and industries and Taxis... well if they were not feeling disrupted... they will soon! 
 
The carpooling service by Google's Waze just went live. It's called RideWith.

Looks great... But I have two questions.

What took you so long BlackBerry? You should have done this back when you were still called RIM!

Second question... Slider... Physical qwerty keyboard? Really? Really???!!!

Great... Your grandfather will love one... Young people have now experienced the swipe capabilities of software keyboards... They will not want a physical qwerty anymore... Get over it!
 
First look at BlackBerry's purported Android slider phone http://bit.ly/1FYHBoy

Cameron reaffirms he is an idiot!
But how exactly does the UK government intend to do that? Watch out, encryption.

+kris m​ I sincerely doubt it. The truth is that this type of actions of isolated terror cells working without command and control centers can only be stopped with old fashion infiltration. Massive spying on entire populations only serves to find millions of needles in billions of haystacks... If you then deploy people to follow all the needles to find the one that will draw blood you will be only spreading your resources too thinly.

The massive surveillance apparatus the Americans have employed has failed to lead to a simple true positive. But the point of it was never to catch terrorists. That is only the excuse...

The old power players are at a lost to how to deal with the emerging trend in the world. From the rise of grassroots movements that have been put into power in Greece and have become the biggest party in Spain (Podemos Party) to the rise of independent crypto-currencies that central banks have no ability to control and/or manipulate.

Times of crisis are also times when the biggest opportunities arise. Maybe , just maybe, the economical sabotage the IMF has been imposing in Greece will be the necessary stark that jump-starts the transition away from command and control centers of the wealthy and powerful that reside in places like the ECB, the IMF and the US central bank into the hands of the people.

Maybe something good will come out of the malfeasances and downright idiocy of the world economical elites.... One can wish... Right?
The world's largest Bitcoin exchanges say they've seen a surge of business from Greece.

This is the women claiming moral authority over the people of Greece and wanting to impose even more taxes on the poor?

The snake does not even pay the normal taxes her fellow citizens have to pay.

#endtheimf
Christine Lagarde, the International Monetary Fund managing director who provoked an angry reaction from the Greek people after telling them to pay their taxes, does not pay tax on her own salary, it has emerged.

No shit Sherlock!

And this government is doing nothing to increase the supply of homes for people that just want to live in them. They are giving every incentive for people with money to grab any available stock in the market.

Retirees that now are given the opportunity to cash out their retirement fund together with savings are now able to buy any lower prices property that would typically be both by young couples trying to get in the housing ladder.

Homes to buy are at record high prices and the huge amount of people priced out of that market are forced to rent at increasingly irrational prices.

Living in an area like oxford and seeing what is happening to the housing market is a daily frustration for me. Both me and my wife have well paying stable jobs and can't buy a house because the prices are just insane and at the same time cannot move to a bigger rental home because the price I would pay monthly is even higher than if I had a big mortgage.

If you compare the money an average couple spends as a proportion of their income to put a roof under our heads in the UK is the highest in Europe, our trains are the most expensive in Europe, the childcare in this country is almost criminally expensive.

Welcome to the Tories way of life! If you are rich buy some property , live of the rental income and let the plebes work over 50% of their time just to support your lifestyle!

BGI will enter the market with their own sequencing machines. 

It will be based in "Complete Genomics" Technology and will allow for Non-Invasive Prenatal Tests with a turnaround of 24 hour and a multiplex run of between 16 and 192 samples!
BGI said it will make more details about the BGISEQ-500 instrument available at the 10th International Conference on Genomics in Shenzhen in October.

Some days ago I called this guy an idiot. Add conman to the list!

Facking his resume to get ahead in life is just what I expected of this type of unscrupulous morons.

Introduction
My Interests: As you will be able to see from the tagline, my main interests are science and technology. I also am very politically opinionated so occasionally I do discuss current affairs and politics. I also write a few posts in my mother tongue (Portuguese) when the subject is of interest only for portuguese friends.

Favourite quote: "Today a young man on acid realized that matter is merely energy condensed to a slow vibration, that we are all one consciousness experiencing itself subjectively, there's no such thing as death, life's only a dream and we are the imagination of ourselves" The great Bill Hicks.

Note to Spammers: If there is one thing I hate above almost anything is spam circlers, so be warned that if you circle me and you have fake profile (companies posing as personal profiles included) and/or send me unsolicited commercial advertisement - I WILL BLOCK AND REPORT YOU!

Went there to get some additional information on how the Thomas Cook travel vouchers work and maybe get some suggestions on how to use the ones I have been gifted as our wedding present. Could not have find a more unhelpful (verging on rude) employee. Not only did he sounded annoyed we decided to go into his establishment, he gave us the bare minimum information he needed to get us out the door, kept typing away in his computer occasionally looking at us while talking. I understand that we might have been busy (if that was the case) but still - just let us know, propose a new time where he can devote some of his attention and time to us as potential clients. We would appreciate his candure and not leave feeling like we did a bad choice choosing travel cook vouchers as our wedding present!
