Uber gave drivers more control to prove they're independent. Now the company is taking back control because drivers actually used it.

Uber CEO Dara Khosrowshahi. Riccardo Savi/Getty Images Uber is revoking California drivers' ability to set prices and see trip destinations in advance, the San Francisco Chronicle reported. Uber gave drivers more control in 2020 to avoid reclassifying drivers as employees under AB-5. But it reversed course after Prop 22 exempted it from AB-5, saying drivers turned down too many rides. See more stories on Insider's business page. In late 2019, California lawmakers passed AB-5, hopin...

Labor Department joins IRS in offering online resources for unemployment fraud victims

While the Internal Revenue Service is working on recalculating taxes paid on unemployment benefits by early filers, other taxpayers are dealing with potential tax bills on money they didn't get. They are victims of unemployment insurance fraud. And their numbers increased last year as millions of people filed for the jobless assistance in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. To help people dealing with unemployment identity theft, the Department of Labor (DoL) has launched a new website. Alerted...

LA County bars warily welcome reopening, with strict rules: ‘It’s better than nothing’

On a normal pre-pandemic day, The North End bar in Hollywood would play host to about 200 people. But nothing has been normal in the last year for Camila Perry, the bar’s co-owner, who runs the tavern with two other partners. On Monday, April 5, as Los Angeles County entered the less-restrictive orange tier, she measured her patio, hoping to find space to set up at least seven tables outside. “It’s kind of overwhelming,” said Perry, who also runs The Oaks Tavern bar in Sherman Oaks. “I have a li...

Hipmunk’s founders launch Flight Penguin to bring back Hipmunk-style flight search

Hipmunk’s founders are building a successor to their now-defunct flight search service. The startup was acquired by SAP-owned travel and expense platform Concur in 2016, and its CEO Adam Goldstein departed in 2018. But Goldstein told me he and his co-founder Steve Huffman (also co-founder and CEO of Reddit) were still disappointed when Concur shut the service down at the beginning of last year. “Over the years, there were millions and millions of people who used it and loved it,” Goldstein said....

JBL HDI-1600 review: This neutral hi-fi speaker is meant to play loud

I’ve reviewed two of JBL‘s hi-fi speakers before, the L82 and L100 Classic — speakers I enjoyed for their great sound and retro aesthetics. Over the past month or two, I’ve been able to test one of the company’s more forward-looking speakers, the $1,800 HDI-1600. After putting it through its paces in my living room and the test bench, it’s clear the HDI deserves its spot in the crowded $2,000 price bracket. The HDI-1600 is a bookshelf speaker with a 6.5-inch woofer for the lows and a 1-inch comp...

Poll: Employees would rather make less money than go back to an office

For many people, one of the few good things about this pandemic has been the ability to work from home. The past year has shown both employees and employers that many jobs can be done effectively from home. In fact, the desire to keep work from home has been so strong that it appears a significant majority of people would rather turn down a $30,000 salary increase than lose the ability to work from home. A poll posted on Blind, an anonymous forum for employees, asks: Would you rather make $30k m...

Los Angeles County public health officials on Monday, April 5, ended the mandate for fully vaccinated travelers to quarantine upon their arrival here, following the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention eased its COVID-19 travel guidelines last week.

What would an autonomous Apple Car mean for Tesla?

I’m not sure what podcasts Elon Musk listens to. But I hope he caught Kara Swisher’s “Sway” today, because it definitely concerns him. Apple CEO Tim Cook joined Swisher and the two discussed, among other things, the mysterious Apple Car. Details are scarce and I’ll be right up front: Cook didn’t give away anything big or make any firm statements. But he did dance around the topic enough to leave a few impressions behind. For starters, speaking about the Apple Car, Cook told Swisher: The autonomy...
