Uber Movement Will Aide in Traffic

Constant changing in traffic patterns has made it difficult for some to get to work on time. Which is why Uber has recently put into effect a new system called Uber Movement. With this, Uber will be able to map traffic patterns for every city to accommodate our increasing population.

Their website includes information about new roads, transit lines, and even major road events of cities. With their insight, Movement will be able to examine rush hours and road closures as well as their impact on the time it takes for a driver to get from point a to point b.

Buzzfeed even recently posted an article explaining that, “In the last year, Uber has launched partnerships with transit agencies across the country to subsidize rides and extend its reach.”

Although it seems fairly recent in the news, surprisingly, Movement has been in the making for over six years, and in that time, they have discovered the path of mobility that will start in 3 cities: Sydney, Australia, Washington, DC, and Manila located as the capital of the Philippines.

Their final goal is to provide information on the infrastructure and framework of cities while protecting the privacy of Uber riders and drivers. Uber claims that all the data collected is reported anonymous and no personal identification is used.

On the Uber Movement website, they stated, “Preserving rider and driver privacy is our #1 priority. All data is anonymized and aggregated to ensure no personally identifiable information or user behavior can be surfaced through the movement tool.”

In the upcoming months, Uber hopes at to give full access to every city that Uber offers its driving services.

Arthur Becker Invests in New Properties

Well known tech investor Arthur Becker has looked to expand his portfolio in real estate. In order to accomplish this objective, Becker recently purchased three townhouses in the SoHo District. With this real estate investment deal, he will have possession of a few properties that he can use to hold and rent out. For a number of years, Becker has been known to be a backer of New York City real estate in which he has been quite active in real estate investing. His new acquisitions in the SoHo District will give him yet another group of properties to help increase the size of his overall investment portfolio.

According to a number of recent reports, Arthur Becker has invested up to $20 million in this recent real estate project. This amount of money was used in order to acquire the properties which will hopefully give Becker a high return once he is looking to sell them. With the investment of these three townhomes, Becker will be able to control property in one of the most desirable neighborhoods in New York City. The properties will give him a prestigious residential location as well as providing him with properties that will appeal to many who wish to be residents of the SoHo District.

The acquisition of the three townhomes in the SoHo District will give Becker three properties that he can profit from both in the present and the future. He plans to live in one of these properties as his personal residence. Along with living in one of the townhomes, Becker is also looking to lease the other two to tenants. As a result, he will have a way to make a considerable income while he owns the properties.

After a number of years, Becker may look to sell the properties and make multi million dollar profits. Therefore, these townhomes will likely give him one of the better investments he has made in recent years. Arthur Becker’s ability to purchase prime real estate in New York City is largely due to his vast fortune from technology investing. He has spent a number of years in investing in technology companies. Becker then used his extra funds to buy up property and create a considerable investment portfolio for himself.

Google Maps Adds Wheelchair Info

Some of Google’s employees have put the company’s 20 percent policy to good use. The policy grants employees the right to spend 20 percent of their work time on projects unrelated to their main assignment.

 

For forward-thinking employees, such as Google Drive’s Rio Akasaka, that meant making Google Maps more useful for people with disabilities. He and a small team took time away from their main projects to come up with accessibility guidelines for the map tool.

 

Now, alongside business hours and reviews, Google Maps will show information about how suitable a venue is for those who need wheelchairs and other accessibility tools. Akasaka believes that this feature benefits everyone who has special access needs, whether that’s being in a wheelchair or using a cane or walker. The information also helps parents with strollers and people who require medical equipment like oxygen tanks, since wheelchair ramps are useful for them too.

 

The information comes from Google’s local guides. In addition to answering questions about cost, atmosphere and hours, users now comment about accessibility. Google synthesizes info from the majority of respondents and adds it to the listing.

 

While this might seem like a small thing, it’s immensely helpful for people who struggle with disabilities. The National Institutes of Health estimates that 2.2 million United States citizens use wheelchairs, with another 6.5 million needing mobility devices such as canes, scooters, walkers or crutches.

 

This comes on the heels of Google’s 2015 Impact Challenge: Disabilities. The tech giant gave more than $20 million in grants to nonprofits that focus on using technology to make life easier for people with accessibility issues. One of the companies, Wheelmap, is working on a similar project to Akasaka’s. With their grant from Google, Wheelmap is creating a tool to collect accessibility information from a variety of sources. They plan to bring it together in one central spot.

 

Google dropped “don’t be evil” as their motto, but Akasaka and his team prove that a few employees still use it as their guiding principle.

 

Amazon now Allows Customers to Shop with Their Televisions

On Tuesday, December 13th, the major online retailer, Amazon.com, introduced a new application for Apple TV users.  “Amazon App: Browse, Search, Shop” allows its customers to browse and purchase items using their Television sets. Available for the new, 4th generation Apple TV system, this app includes many of the same functions as the Amazon app for IOS smartphones. Customers can search for items, read reviews, and actually purchase products using this innovative, new application.

 

In order to actually make purchases with their apple TV, users must be signed up for Amazon Prime, which is Amazon’s version of a VIP membership program. Amazon Prime members receive many benefits, including access to Amazon Video, as well as, free two-day shipping on all orders. Available for a very reasonable price, the membership costs only $99 per year. For those who are frequent Amazon customers, this is a fantastic deal.

 

Even for those who are not Amazon Prime members, the app allows you to save items to a wish list, which can be accessed on a smartphone or computer any time. Customers can also scroll thorough shopping lists, featured items, and gift guides using their Apple TV remote.

 

Apple released its 4th generation of the popular streaming device, Apple TV, last October. It is most commonly used for streaming video from channels like Netflix and Hulu. However, apps are available for a wide variety of purposes, including social media and website browsing. The newest version includes a voice control function. The Siri remote, allows shoppers to verbally search for whatever items that they are looking for. This eliminates the struggle of using the keyboard interface with a remote control.

 

Basically a large-scale version of the Amazon shopping app for IOS, this new Apple TV application could change the way that people shop. If this innovation is successful, there is no doubt that other companies will soon follow in Amazon’s footsteps. At this point however, many reviewers are unsure that the app will actually prove itself useful.
