Waze tests carpooling option in Bay Area

Waze tests carpooling option in Bay Area | Technology | Scoop.it
Waze, the Google-owned traffic navigation app, said Monday more than 25,000 employees at select companies in the Bay Area will be able to test a carpooling option that allows them to hitch a ride with Waze drivers. Employees can download a free app, Waze Rider, that lets them request a ride from other Waze users who share a similar commute. [...] Waze drivers notify other app users if there are accidents or police monitoring traffic on the roads. Waze tried a similar pilot program last year in Israel, where it took a 15 percent commission if riders paid drivers. The difficulty of finding enough people to consistently fill a car, safety concerns and the awkwardness associated with an exchange of money have created barriers for decades, said Susan Shaheen, co-director of UC Berkeley Transportation Sustainability Research Center. Connecting nearby riders and drivers and estimating wait times — as Uber and Lyft have done — make ride sharing a more reliable transportation option. The Google employee said carpooling has sped up her commute to and from her home in lower Pacific Heights and Google’s Mountain View headquarters.

iPhone Warning Signs | Technology | Scoop.it

Apple has spent years proving iPhone doubters wrong. Those who made a habit
of calling for the iPhone's demise have watched the product go on to bring
Apple over $600 billion of revenue and close to $250 billion of gross
profit over the years. Ironically, just when it seemed like iPhone skeptics
had thrown in the towel and accepted the iPhone's supremacy, warning signs
are beginning to appear in the iPhone business.
