Nearly 100 Lyft drivers sue, complaining of illegally being paid too little

Several dozen Lyft drivers across California have filed a new labor lawsuit against the ride-hailing company, arguing—like many before them—that they are being inadequately paid.

According to the lawsuit, Abdeljabbar et al. v. Lyft, which was filed in federal court in San Francisco on Wednesday, drivers are being paid “less than $8 per hour.” That’s far less than the California minimum wage of $11 per hour, and even further behind the minimum in some other Golden State cities, which mandate even higher pay.

A substantial portion of the drivers’ lawsuit is based on a May 2018 decision by the California Supreme Court known as Dynamex.

Infiniti Is Bringing an EV Crossover to the 2019 Detroit Auto Show

By | December 14, 2018

And so it begins. Normally we can’t stand teaser images but this one from Infiniti actually provides a decent idea of what its new fully electric crossover concept will look like. So far, we dig it.

“The concept car we will show in Detroit is the beginning of a new era for Infiniti, and an illustration of where we want to go with the brand. Electrification and other new technologies have given us the opportunity to evolve our design philosophy,” said Karim Habib, Infiniti executive design director, in the release accompanying the image.

From the teaser image, the new EV concept will have a low and wide stance, thin slits for headlights, an LED-lit grille surround, and cameras instead of side mirrors. If you can’t tell the company responsible for the model, there’s a giant, illuminated clue emblazoned across the front end.

“Thirty years ago, as a 24-year-old designer in the audience, I saw the birth of Infiniti in person and am proud to be part of the journey of creating iconic luxury automobiles,” said Nissan global design chief Alfonso Albaisa. “Now, 30 years later, Q Inspiration shows how new proportions triggered by the new electrified power of Infiniti has inspired a new direction, a new visual language. Alongside our Prototype 10 Pebble Beach concept, both designs embody a deep simplicity inspired by the technology within and a new artistry inspired by our unique culture and of course our roots in Japan.”

The marque is preparing to celebrate its 30th anniversary and previewed this compact EV model in Hong Kong as part of the run-up to the occasion. The new EV platform on which it sits promises to provide designers with more interior space and the ability to create lounge-like cabins with plenty of new bells and whistles.

“The industry is at a technological inflection point,” said Infiniti chief Roland Krueger. “As such, Infiniti has a compelling vision as a luxury challenger brand to bring a full portfolio of beautifully-designed electric vehicles to customers around the world. We will focus on developing the full portfolio of e-power and EVs.”

The brand plans to electrify its entire portfolio with hybrids or pure EV powertrains by 2021.

Don’t buy a 5G smartphone—at least, not for a while

By | December 14, 2018
5G is here, but that doesn't mean you have to buy into it.

2019 is going to be the year of 5G—at least, that’s what the cellular industry keeps saying. We’re going to see the launch of several 5G smartphones from OEMs like Samsung, Motorola, and OnePlus, and carriers will be tripping over themselves to tell you how awesome their new 5G networks are despite coming with a slew of asterisks. I would like to make something up about how ridiculous the 5G hype has gotten, but it’s hard to top actual quotes from industry executives, like Verizon’s claim that 5G will “dramatically improve our global society.” Faster mobile Internet is coming, but should you care about it yet?

Qualcomm recently had its big 2019 chip announcement, and as the world’s biggest provider of smartphone chips, that gives us a good idea of what the upcoming 5G hardware will look like. The industry is doing its best to hype 5G up as The Next Big Thing™, but 5G hardware in 2019 is going to be a decidedly first-generation affair. Early adopters for 5G will have to accept all manner of tradeoffs. And when there might not even be 5G reception in your area, it might be better to just wait the whole thing out for a year or two.

A 5G mmWave primer: Making use of the spectrum that nobody wanted

“5G” is a shorthand reference to the next generation of cellular network technology that is launching in 2019. The whole “G” naming scheme started in the 1990s with the launch of GSM, which was called the “second generation”—aka “2G”—of mobile networking technology. GSM upgraded early networks from analog to digital, and those old analog networks were retroactively given the name “1G.” Since then, we’ve gotten new “G” numbers with major coordinated network upgrades about every 10 years. These iterations brought important features like SMS and MMS messages, IP-based networking and mobile Internet, and, of course, more speed.

I’ll keep this glowing review short for two reasons: because I’m on vacation, and because there’s not much I need to say to make my point.

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is right up there with Black Panther and Deadpool 2 as one of the best comic book adaptations in theaters this year. What’s more, it’s easily the best comic-nerd film in years to warmly embrace the kinds of viewers who know their comics canon front and back, all without intimidating the inevitable kid and newbie viewers attracted to this incredibly family-friendly adventure.
