It's odd, but for me the most interesting part of a press conference isn't the carefully-planned speeches of the celebrities. It's the way that the cameramen and journalists operate, seeming to wor...

All very true. But child abductions are front page news, much like shark attacks. Both rare.

For Uber, launching in a new city must be like Starbucks opening a new coffeeshop. They've done it hundreds of times before. They know how to work the media, how to offer swag and codes for free ri...

I catch the taxi to and from the airport regularly it's normally just under $30. It would great to get a über car to work everyday rather then buying a car but I think the bus be the way to work and walk home playing ingress.

Uber: loose cannon or small change?
Uber doesn't always tell the whole truth. Let's be upfront about that. I quickly worked out that the internet is full of blogs and chatrooms, all saying much the same thing. Being an Uber driver is...

"Ask me in a week's time," I told one journalist at last week's launch of Uber in Canberra, "and I might not be so full of the company line." Here it is, seven full days later. I've driven (almost)...

To be honest, I wasn't expecting to have a fare so soon. I must have accidentally clicked the accept button or something. But there it was, a few minutes after launch time, and not only was I not e...

I stepped back, took a wide shot. My little mirrorless looked like a toy compared to some of the big guns around. Looked like photographers were either professionals with ten thousand dollar camera...

My fifteen seconds of eternal fame. Had a fun day out on the roads, met some people, made myself useful, made some money. All good.

I've worked out what Uber's really up to!
Shortly after applying and for the month or two after, I worked out that Uber wasn't really interested in ride-sharing. Sure, they might be a $US50 billion business out of that, but behind the scen...

My first Uber swag!
Uber, when you get down to it, is an app. Without that little bit of software running on millions of smartphones, there would be no multi-billion dollar business and no millions of Uber rides each ...

Each year, a friend and I put our pennies together to buy a floral gift for some special friends. Jay is in New Zealand and I in Australia, so we can't make our selection in person. Michaela makes it easy, with her thoughtful suggestions, photographs and free delivery. Her consideration and helpfulness shine out. Michaela is worth every penny. That's why we return to her. Thank you!
