Uber given the banhammer in Germany…again

Uber given the banhammer in Germany…again

Uber has been hit again with legal woes in Germany, receiving today a ruling that its uberPOP drivers in particular must get the same permits as taxi drivers to continue picking up riders -- something that has haunted Uber across multiple countries and within several states, and that despite its best efforts otherwise have hampered its ability to operate the way it wants. This is the second time Uber has been given the banhammer in the nation, with this latest ruling reversing the ruling made in September that had overturned the original ban.

Dish co-founder takes over as CEO — is mobile the next step?

Dish co-founder takes over as CEO — is mobile the next step?

Today, Dish is announcing their CEO is stepping down. Joseph Clayton took over for Dish co-founder Charlie Erdman in 2011, and was charged with transforming Dish’s business. He was at the head of the table as Dish acquired a massive portfolio of spectrum (relative to their needs), and also helped bring us Sling TV. In his absence, Erdman will reclaim the CEO role. The appointment of Erdman, who sat on Dish’s board since stepping down as CEO, isn’t temporary, either, suggesting even more change is afoot.

Verizon reportedly not interested in more big spectrum purchases

Verizon reportedly not interested in more big spectrum purchases

The latest FCC auction saw Verizon walking away with over $10 billion in new spectrum, further cementing their mobile network as the best available in the United States. Others, like Sprint and T-Mobile, either didn’t make an effort, or didn’t try to acquire much spectrum. The playing field might get a bit more even next time around, though, as Verizon is now saying they’ve got no desire to snap up more spectrum, and will instead focus on making what they have the best it possibly can be.

What to expect from tomorrow’s Windows 10 event

What to expect from tomorrow’s Windows 10 event

In a few short months, we’ve seen Microsoft go in a new direction with Windows. Possibly in an attempt to distance themselves from the aspirational (but ultimately confusing and misguided) Windows 8, we’re now getting Windows 10. Though Microsoft probably isn’t quite ready to bring Windows 10 to the consumer space, tomorrow will likely give us a better idea of what they’ve been working on since last time we heard from them. We won’t expect anything huge, but there’s still reason to be excited.

India gives OnePlus some space, temporarily lifts ban

India gives OnePlus some space, temporarily lifts ban

India's High Court just handed OnePlus a timely holiday gift. Overturning the decision of a solitary judge, the court gave OnePlus some amount of reprieve and allowed it to continue selling its OnePlus One smartphone in India. But it is hardly a straight out victory for the Chinese startup as the case is still to formally begin in January. It does, however, give OnePlus some time to recoup some of its loses and at least sell some of its remaining inventory, and maybe even import some more, until that fated date.

Intel’s MICA: more than just a pretty face, still pricey

Intel’s MICA: more than just a pretty face, still pricey

Intel has just announced the availability of its new wearable MICA, short for My Intelligent Communication Accessory, where Intel and Opening Ceremony try bring up a product that blends technology and fashion. Unequivocally targeted at women who have a penchant for both worlds, MICA flaunts materials that very few smartbands and smartwatches would dare to wear. But it also has a bit of smarts hidden inside as well, though somewhat a bit less than a smartwatch, which still sounds quite OK, at least until you get to the price tag.

7 Colorado towns vote to take Internet back

7 Colorado towns vote to take Internet back

In the ongoing conversation about an open Internet, the main topic of discussion is about pipelines. Some would like the Internet to remain as-is, while some others want there to be a paid and free service; tiered Internet, so to speak. In Colorado this week, citizens took back their right to have Internet as they choose, just in a different way. A previously implemented ban on community broadband service was overturned, as a majority of voters want their Internet back.

Apple Store no longer carries Bose products

Apple Store no longer carries Bose products

A lot has been speculated on regarding Apple’s relationship with third-party entities lately, as both Bose and Fitbit have reportedly come under fire as having offended Apple’s sensibilities. In Fitbit’s case, it seems to be their resistance to support HealthKit that allegedly has them on the edge of being removed from the Apple Store. Bose and the NFL have a partnership that saw athletes being fined for wearing Beats headphones. Suddenly, a search for Bose headphones in the Apple Store brings up no products.
