I predict that Barnes&Noble will be gone by 2020 or possibly sooner.

The Nook brand might stick around after the fact, but owned by Google or MS or Apple.

There's something about the rise of Uber I don't understand.

1. Taxis but with ~smartphones~

What I like about stuff like Uber/Lyft is that you can call a car and then you know where the car you've called is and you can instantly see it, on the map, making it's way towards you. Which is a vast improvement over the traditional taxi model of calling and hoping they might eventually show up.

also with Lyft you can tip them which I like.


Borders has already been gone for like 3-4 years now.

didn't a bunch of chain restaurants already have a bunch of severe e. coli problems that killed a bunch of people but are still around? I feel like the whole Chipotle thing is just a repeat of something that happened in the 90's with like jack in the box and some kind of salad place
