“They are throwing a free party and we’re here to ruin that party.” Protesters from the New York Taxi Workers Alliance are happy that Lyft did not launch last night.
While the party kept going, nearly 100 drivers from the New York Taxi Workers Alliance shouted towards the crowd and event organizers.
One protester, Victor, told BuzzFeed that they were protesting the rideshare aspect of Lyft and that it isn't innovation, but piracy of jobs. “We abide by the rules, pay high insurance and leases, have workers compensation, and protect our riders because we are trained professionals,” he said.
“Lyft is a multimillionaire corporation. And yet, they don't want to abide by the rules and regulations they should have to go through,” he added.
Remember the 17-story Verrückt water slide that was being developed at the Schlitterbahn park in Kansas City!.?. !? Well it was expected to open this last weekend. The only problem is, the preliminary of test riders captured air near the bottom of the major ramp, leading the park to question the ride’s safety. Pfft, simply put netting over the slide and inform riders they’re SUPPOSED to capture air. Boom– issue resolved. Damn, I ought to work at Disneyland. “GW! Another kid just fell out of Space Mountain!” Uh oh. * flicking syringe * Making him to my brainwash chamber. “Seriously?” No, offer him an ice cream and some Mickey ears and make them sign away their right to take legal action against. “Then exactly what’s in the syringe?” Steroids– I’ve been injecting them directly into my penis and I’m not going to stop up until it can bench press 220 by itself. “Why 220?” That’s just how much my roomie’s mom weighs. Thanks to lilco, who concurs a ride without the threat of physical injury is hardly a trip worth taking.

It sure is good that Microsoft’s Xbox One controller doesn’t have a “Share” button dedicated to pushing live broadcasts of gameplay to the internet, because that functionality is being delayed beyond the console’s November 22nd launch date. Microsoft confirmed as much this morning in a cursory footnote in a larger piece about the Twitch.tv app, which reads, “We are working to ensure the initial Twitch on Xbox One broadcasting experience meets the expectations of the Twitch community.” It sounds like, as it stands now, broadcasting via Xbox One isn’t up to snuff for release.
“While this feature won’t be available right away, we’ll let you know as soon as it is ready,” the note continues. “Our goal is to deliver it during the first part of 2014.” We’ve yet to use the Xbox One’s broadcasting since first hearing about it during the console’s debut event last May. To be clear, the Twitch.tv app is different from the ability to broadcast gameplay through Twitch.
In addition to the delay news, Microsoft released a video of Twitch.tv’s app in action, which enables viewing of gameplay broadcasts (it’s below the break). Hilariously, this will allow Xbox One players to watch live gameplay from other game platforms, just not the one they’re using. Womp womp.

The August smart lock was set to ship to customers beginning later this year, but for reasons unknown, it’s now delayed. The $ 199 Yves Behar-designed deadbolt, which can be controlled via a smartphone app connected over Bluetooth, is available for pre-orders beginning today, and will now debut with silver, bronze, black and red finishes. Additionally, August will also now support a feature called EverLock, which recognizes when you’ve closed a door behind you and automatically engages the bolt. Check out the new colors in the gallery below; if you like what you see, you can hit up the source link to place an order.%Gallery-slideshow99820%

According to an email issued to NVIDIA Shield buyers, the Android gaming handheld is scheduled to make its delayed launch window by the skin of its teeth. “We want to thank you for your patience and for sticking with us through the shipment delay of your Shield,” reads the statement. “We have great news to share with you — your Shield will ship on July 31st.” The Tegra 4 testing platform was originally scheduled to hit online retailers in late June, but was delayed due to “a mechanical issue that relates to a third-party component.”
The finalized ship date puts the product within its delayed July launch window by technicality, but due to the nature of snail mail, most buyers probably won’t receive their unit until after the first of August. Frustrating for eager buyers perhaps, but at least NVIDIA’s email strikes an apologetic tone — assuring customers that the delay was a quality assurance measure. Can’t wait until the end of the month? Check out our hands-on with the final hardware right here.

GameStick first appeared around the the first of this year, promising its Kickstarter supporters an Android gaming console that looks more Roku Streaming Stick than OUYA. Since then, GameStick has gathered its cash and started shipping out dev units, but its commercial release has already been delayed once, and today the project got pushed back another month. That means that GameSticks won’t start shipping until early August.
The reason for the delay is that the device’s UI remains a work in progress and the team hasn’t yet given backers who pledged $ 300 or more the chance to provide feedback. It’s not all bad news, however, as the folks behind GameStick have confirmed that manufacturing tooling is complete, and the first Kickstarter controller has rolled off the line. Not only that, but you can see shots of the final versions of the GameSick itself and its controller’s charging dock at the source link below.
