But that liberal tendency does not translate into how customers view one of the more controversial topics faced by state and local governments today: whether or not to regulate these new companies in the same manner as traditional taxi and hotel companies, which must follow strict rules on car insurance, provide access to customers with disabilities, and pay local hotel taxes.

It remains unclear what the political implications of these dynamics will be as city councils and state legislatures across the country attempt to get a grip on Uber and Airbnb.

The companies have used their billion-dollar war chests to effectively mobilize users against regulations in some cities.

Last November, voters in famously liberal San Francisco rejected a ballot initiative that aimed to strictly regulate short-term rentals, after Airbnb pumped more than $8m into the campaign to defeat it.

But voters in Austin, Texas rejected a nearly $9m campaign by Uber and Lyft to repeal regulations on ride-sharing in the city earlier this month.

The study also found an interesting racial disparity in users of home-share services that does not exist among ride-hail users – 13% of white Americans have used home-share services, compared to just 5% of blacks and 9% of Latinos.

It might finally be time for use to dig out our virtual saddles and gun holsters.In its financial report for fiscal 2016, publisher Take-Two noted that developer Rockstar Games is working on exciting future projects that will be revealed soon.

The company is behind some of the most successful games of all time, including Grand Theft Auto V.Fans expect the studio s next release to be a sequel to Red Dead Redemption, the open-world Western that came out back in 2010.

That game shipped over 14 million copies for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

We seem due for a sequel.

In fact, a supposed map for such a game leaked last month.Of course, Take-Two specifically said projects, indicating that Rockstar is working on more than one game GTA V came out in 2013, after all .

We ll have to wait to see exactly what s going on, but we might find out more during the Electronic Entertainment Expo in Los Angeles next month.

According to his retelling of the story on Re/code Decode, after struggling to accomplish anything meaningful in his first year on the job, he was on the verge of being fired.

This idea not only saved him his job, but earned him the lionshare of the credit for Facebook s unprecedented growth.

At the time, Sheryl and Mark asked him, What do you call this thing where you help change the product, do some SEO and SEM, and algorithmically do this or that?

Four Ways Software Changed How Companies Grow

There have been four major market changes caused by the proliferation of software that have changed our approach to growing products.

The Emergence of Platforms and APIs

DJ duo Mashd N Kutcher get it?

are known pranksters, so it s no surprise that they always have fun playing around with their fans.

Here s a good one in which they set the crowd up with the perfect beat drop—only to cut right into Vanessa Carlton s A Thousand Miles instead.

What they do next—disappearing from the DJ booth and then letting the poppy love song go on and on—makes the stunt even funnier.

Watching the crowd bounce, and then groan, and then wonder when they can pump their fists again is the best part.

Here s some more of their antics, which include playing Smash Bros in the DJ booth and collaborating with the pizza guy:

Conveyor of military brass and even limited firepower.

Four different driving modes allow setting the AWD for automatic, mud, sand, or snow road conditions.

With no options, at $20,990 including destination the Sport offers four-wheel drive, black body trim, and love-'em-or-hate-'em steel wheels painted flat black.

This turbocharged engine and transmission combination unfortunately shines a light on throttle lag, however, which is one particular bit of engine dynamic behavior that many other manufacturers have long since been able to minimize.

To minimize spikes in emissions due to transients when the throttle is sharply opened or closed, manufacturers often soften those throttle opening and closing rates.

On a closing throttle, this sort of strategy certainly cleans up some emissions spikes, but it can also cause the engine to decelerate—or idle down—frustratingly slowly.
