A former UK cop turned vigilante, who was last month ordered to stop undertaking citizen’s arrests on Uber drivers, is now trying to have the hire car service’s discount arm, UberX, banned in New South Wales.
Russell Howarth was targeting “unlicensed” UberX drivers for months, before Uber successfully obtained an injunction from the Supreme Court preventing him from doing so.
In response, lawyers acting on behalf of Mr Howarth and the Australian Taxi Drivers Association (ATDA) filed a cross-claim, seeking an injunction that would have UberX declared illegal across the state.
The injunction would not impact other Uber services like UberTAXI or UberBLACK, which do not breach state regulations :: Read the full article »»»»

OK we’ve possibly over-used the word Über, thats kind of tuff though, heres another round of Über Theres cool, verycool, supercool and living above all these Übercool. Ace Hotels U.S.A definately fits into the latter. These guys are a reason unto themselves to visit the states! seriously! One reviewer blurted “Sure, they have rooms but checking into the Ace isn’t about sleeping; it’s about living. If there one place, one time – this is it. Sure, the ‘suburban’ factor is seeping in but still this is on the radar of those in the know and mostly not of those who don’t” Dark, cavernous and incredibly entertaining, you can make a day of just people-watching here as stylish 20-somethings gestalt their west coast Stumptown sisters with thrift-store bargains that put shame to anyone who thinks style and attitude can be bought, borrowed or faked. Nope, this is the real deal for celebrating the zeitgeist of post-millennial Manhattan and all that the next twenty years promises to bring. Portland in Manhattan? Sure, in some weird way but interpreted for more of the trans-Atlantic b-class set who imagine the American west coast as something akin to a Davis Lynch movie set. Hey, they can have their fantasies too. WOW! M★C READ MORE
