Airbnb has come a long way since its inception as a site to find a couch--or an air mattress--to crash on. Now that you can rent everything from a spare room to a vacant castle, it's time for the hospitality company to embrace its corporate future.
Late Sunday night, software engineer Aaron Landy penned a Medium post that changed the way regular Uber passengers see themselves. Landy discovered a hack that allowed the car-hailing app's users to see their ratings--the numerical score drivers assign riders based on their behavior. It was a major, if brief, game-changer.
Instagram may be designed for smartphones, but you've probably noticed that the best photos have a distinctly non-camera-phone vibe to them. Savvy Instagrammers post high-quality DSLR or point-and-shoot photos instead. You can create a high-quality Instagram feed, too, with a little help from Dropbox and your iOS or Android device.
Foursquare has been teasing its rebirth for months, and now it seems the end (or is that the beginning?) is near. As of Thursday, you'll no longer be able to check into a location on Foursquare. The service will push you to its dedicated check-in app Swarm from now on.
Taxis suck. Waiting for taxis sucks, paying for a taxi is always more difficult than it needs to be, and actually riding in a taxi? Well, that sucks too.
