And you’re only buying one car. Now imagine going through this ordeal for an entire fleet. Los Angeles operates about 11,000 vehicles and pieces of equipment, including shared company ‘pool’ cars, buses, street sweepers, and garbage trucks. (For comparison, that’s going on twice the size of UPS’ delivery fleet of 5,900 vehicles.) The city, long a leader in the war on smog, wants to switch as many of those vehicles as possible to electrics. It’s a great move for the planet, for Angeleno’s lungs, and for politicians who want to run on an environmentally friendly ticket. It’s less easy, however, on the budget. An all-electric bus could come at a $300,000 premium over a regular bus’ $500,000 price tag. So LA is doing what most people do when the going gets tough: They lean on their friends.

Since this is effectively library book material, it will show signs of wear and tear similar to a library book: crushed corners, broken spines, faded surfaces. One can argue that this will give the cover “charm”, however.

Wyatt says that Chinese giants are hoping to overcome that difficulty with offices that tech talent wants to inhabit. But he argues that stereotypical startup amenities aren’t enough. “That prized software engineer is not just interested in ‘how close am I to a foosball table or a refrigerator?'” he says. “They’re also interested in being effective.”

The data breaches nearly derailed a deal for Verizon to acquire Yahoo’s core business. In February, the two sides came to a revised agreement, giving Verizon a $350 million discount versus the original offer. Verizon will now buy Yahoo for $4.48 billion.
Instead, you slice the movie as many ways as possible, to extract as much money as possible, all the while retaining ownership so that when new services come out, you can make money from them as well. You want to sell theater tickets, of course. Maybe HBO pays for a month’s exclusive access once the film leaves theaters. You put it on a few of those hotel-chain networks, and sell theater and cable distribution rights in every country you can think of. Someone gets DVD and Blu-ray rights. You sell on-demand rights to iTunes and Comcast, and streaming-on-demand rights to Hulu and Amazon. Then maybe you go back to Starz and let it have exclusive access for awhile, then spend a month airing every night on TBS, before settling into a nice long life of broad availability. Until someone like Facebook or go90 comes along with a dump truck full of money to play your movie on a gazillion phones.

Where’s the world?” So, he expects that we’ll see interface devices very soon now because there’s an interesting enough place to visit. “If you could be in Second Life in a full-body interface…”
