Lyft Atlanta Ride Share Driver

Ride Share Driving For Lyft Atlanta

Lyft Atlanta Ride Share Driving – Sports Techie blog

Lyft is my preferred ride sharing company even before Uber started started taking negative PR hits because of their corporate culture towards women employees primarily forcing their founder to step down. When I did not own a car, I relied on mostly public transportation and that means Marta buses and trains in Atlanta as well as relying on ride share. I bought a Chevy Cruze last year and now drive exclusively for Lyft although I am cleared for Uber too. Now 1,500 rides later, it has truly been an amazing opportunity to both meet people, see the Atlanta area and places I would probably never have visited otherwise, and to understand this new age, tech-driven business model...

The question has been posed whether the usage of replays, especially slow-motion, is taking the moment out of the sport. The Sports Techie community blog is firm in our support to continue the use of instant replay in sports...

A Brief History of Technology in Sports

Since its appearance, technology has strived to intermingle with almost every area of human life. And even when you thought that was impossible, it did the same with sports. Sports fans were a bit frustrated at first, thinking that tech specialists would interrupt or even slow the game down. The Sports Techie community blog has championed sports tech for the past six years but really going on more than twenty years when you count my career.

The troublesome goals and seemingly equal race times, however, were much more irritating. Hence, sports technology became widely accepted soon after its first appearance. For betting enthusiasts, in particular, it managed to provide indisputable results, without giving them the opportunity to blame it on the betting services, such as NJ Casinos and many...
