[Deal Alert] Sony XB30 Bluetooth speaker with 24 hour battery life for $79.99 ($20 off)

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

There are plenty of options for Bluetooth speakers around, including some from popular brands like JBL and UE. Sony also makes a few speakers that are perhaps slightly less well-known, but they are no slouches either. One of Sony’s more popular speakers, the XB30, which has an impressive 24-hour battery life, is currently on sale on Amazon for just $ 79.99 ($ 20 less than what Sony usually sells them for).

In addition to the incredibly long battery life (for comparison, the similarly-priced JBL Flip 4 lasts for half as long, and the more expensive JBL Charge 3 lasts only 20 hours), the Sony XB30 supports pairing via NFC, is water resistant, and can be wirelessly connected to up to 10 other speakers for stereo sound.

WhatsApp time limit for deleting messages increases to over an hour

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

WhatsApp is one of a few messaging platforms that lets you delete a message after you’ve sent it. Skype is another one worth mentioning, though we’re sure that far more people actually use WhatsApp. The messenger platform introduced the feature back in October of last year and allows someone to delete a message “.for everyone” within 7 minutes of the message being sent. Of course, the recipient(s) would not see the message, but would see a ‘message deleted’ placeholder replace the deleted message. WhatsApp has quietly updated this time window of which you may delete a message after…

WhatsApp messages can now be deleted an hour after you sent them by mistake

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

WhatsApp

WhatsApp has quietly changed the way its message deletion feature works. Originally introduced in October, the WhatsApp “delete for everyone” used to only allow you to delete messages up to seven minutes after you sent them. WABetaInfo has noticed that the latest version of WhatsApp extends that time limit significantly to one hour, eight minutes, and 16 seconds.

It’s not clear why the limit is now so specific, apart from being 2^12, and the WhatsApp support pages don’t provide any additional info on the time limit. An hour means you now have far longer to delete messages sent by mistake, or can wipe out entire conversations from a friend’s phone. WhatsApp doesn’t have a secret conversations option like rivals where it creates a…

Hennessey’s Venom F5 could be the first road car to break 300 miles per hour

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

Faster than an F1 car and named after an F5 tornado, the newest Hennessey Venom is the kind of car that unquestionably belongs at the Geneva Motor Show. It is all about raw power and radical design. It’s also about as rare as they come, with just 24 being made — half of which the company says have already been bought for a cool $ 1.6 million each.

Much of what we know about the Venom F5 are the stats that Hennessey Special Vehicles, the small company behind the car, has already shared. Teased for nearly a full year at this point, the Hennessey Venom F5’s 1,600 horsepower twin turbo V8 is supposedly capable of pushing the car to 301 miles per hour. The company’s founder, John Hennessey, said in a statement, “It’s no question of if we will…

Uber calls MIT study concluding drivers make less than $4 an hour ‘flawed’

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

“MIT = Mathematically Incompetent Theories (at least as it pertains to ride-sharing),” Uber CEO Dara Khosrowshahi tweeted.

The average Uber driver makes less than $ 4 an hour, at least according to a new paper published by MIT. In fact, the study, which coupled data from a survey of 1,100 drivers with vehicle cost information, found that 74 percent of drivers earned less than minimum wage in the state they worked in.

Uber trotted out its in-house economist Jonathan Hall to respond to the claims, and he says the study is flawed because of a discrepancy in the way the researchers analyzed the survey results.

“Perhaps most surprisingly, the earnings figures suggested in the paper are less than half the hourly earnings numbers reported in the very survey the paper derives its data from,” Hall writes in a new post.

Even Uber CEO Dara Khosrowshahi sounded off on Twitter, saying MIT stood for “Mathematically Incompetent Theories.”

Uber has embarked on a campaign to win back drivers after years of mistrust. The company has recently instituted some driver requests such as tipping and more convenient fare routes.

The Rideshare Guy survey — the underlying data used for the paper — found Uber drivers made an average of $ 15.68 an hour — but that’s before the costs of gas, maintenance and other expenses.

The MIT paper then incorporated the cost-per-mile for driving for Uber.

A brief on the study, which won’t be released in full for a few months, reads:

A Median driver generates $ 0.59 per mile of driving, and incurs costs of $ 0.30 per mile. 30% of drivers incur expenses exceeding their revenue, or lose money for every mile they drive. (Figure 1) On an hourly basis, the median profit is $ 3.37 per hour and 74% of drivers earn less than the minimum wage in the state where they operate.

Still, Uber claims the researchers’ methodology was flawed and further that drivers may not have understood the questions they were asked.

This is the crux of the company’s argument:

The Rideshare Guy survey asks a number of questions about how much drivers earn and how many hours they work per week. The most important are questions 11, 14, and 15.

Q11: “How many hours per week do you work on average? Combine all of the on-demand services that you work for.”

Q14: “How much money do you make in the average month? Combine the income from all your on-demand activities.”

Q15: “How much of your total monthly income comes from driving?”

The problem in this case is inconsistent logic on the part of the paper’s authors. Consider this: for question 14, the authors assume respondents are reporting income from *all* sources, not just on-demand work. As a result of this assumption, the authors discount the earnings from Q14 by the answer to Q15, “How much of your total monthly income comes from driving?”

For example: if a driver answered $ 1,000 to $ 2,000 to Q14, the authors would interpret that as $ 1,420.63² according to their methodology. If the respondent then answered “Around half” to Q15, the authors conclude this driver made $ 710.32 driving — half what they actually earned from driving with ridesharing platforms.

However, and perhaps just as important, the authors also assume that drivers understood Q11 perfectly well and that the hours reported only applied to on-demand work. As a result, they divide an incorrectly low earnings number by the correct number of hours.

We’ve reached out to the researchers and will update when we hear back.
