In a new update to its app announced Monday, Uber drivers will now be forced to take a six-hour break after a total of 12 hours of driving time. Drivers will not be able to accept new riders during that rest period.

In a blog post, the company said it will “strengthen our approach to help keep riders and drivers safe on the road while preserving the flexibility drivers tell us they love.” The post added that 60 percent of its drivers are only on the road for 10 hours or less per week.

By contrast, federal regulations stipulate that bus drivers may only drive 10 consecutive hours after having had eight hours off duty.

12 ex-Atari women respond to #NotNolan controversy, offer ‘70s perspective

1 Share

The Atari 2600 (originally sold as the Atari Video Computer System, or VCS) was by far the most popular console of its era. It did much to popularize switchable cartridge-based games. Despite many efforts, Atari would never again replicate its success. (credit: Andrew Cunningham)

Almost immediately after Atari co-founder Nolan Bushnell was un-nominated for a "Pioneer" award over accusations of sexism, questions arose from gaming fans and historians alike: was the reaction appropriate?

They wanted to know: was a "#NotNolan" campaign too quick to pass judgement based on salacious rumors? Or was it a measured response to how the gaming and technology industries look so many years later?

A report from Kotaku's Cecilia D'Anastasio came closest to answering that question on Monday. For the report, she interviewed a compelling spectrum of women who are perhaps best equipped to speak to the question: Bushnell's female peers within Atari, as well as female industry researchers and historians. The report doesn't come close to a definitive answer, and its hesitation to render any verdict on the matter is perhaps its greatest strength.

Tesla owner attempts Autopilot defense during DUI stop

1 Share

A San Francisco Tesla owner has learned the hard way that Tesla's Autopilot feature does not excuse getting behind the wheel while intoxicated. On Saturday, January 13, police discovered a man in his Tesla vehicle on the San Francisco–Oakland Bay Bridge. The San Francisco Chronicle reports that "the man had apparently passed out in the stopped car while stuck in the flow of busy bridge traffic at 5:30pm, according to the California Highway Patrol."

When police woke the man up, he assured officers that everything was fine because the car was "on autopilot." No one was injured in the incident, and the California Highway Patrol made a snarky tweet about it:

Needless to say, other Tesla owners—and people who own competing systems like Cadillac's Super Cruise—should not follow this guy's example. No cars on the market right now have fully driverless technology available. Autopilot, Supercruise, and other products are driver assistance products—they're designed to operate with an attentive human driver as a backup. Driving drunk using one of these systems is just as illegal as driving drunk in a conventional car.
