This site ranks VPN speeds so you know which service will stream Netflix the fastest

Netflix is at the start of a very long battle with VPN service users that will aim to prevent people from streaming content to regions where it is not licensed. The battle is being driven by content rights owners, of course, which aren’t happy that users are able to stream movies and shows in regions where they are not licensed. Needless to say, things aren’t exactly cut and dry — this is going to be a long, drawn-out battle with plenty of back and forth.

In the meantime, people will continue to use VPN services to get around Netflix’s streaming restrictions. People also use VPNs for a variety of other things that have some pretty heavy bandwidth needs, so wouldn’t it be nice to know which VPN service providers offer the fastest service? Well now there’s an easy way to find out. More →

Cheaper Uber Alternative

Uber rival Gett will pay you if its fares aren’t cheaper than Uber

Uber rival Gett will pay you if its fares aren’t cheaper than Uber

There is little question that Uber is king of the next generation of taxi killers, but rivals like Lyft have still managed to make a name for themselves. This new breed of transportation allows just about anyone to become a “taxi driver,” and users hail rides using an app rather than trying to flag a car down on the street or call a cab service to order a car. These services are quick, they’re easy, and everyone seems to love them. Well, almost everyone.

A smaller Uber rival called Gett has been making waves recently by offering flat fares and surge-free pricing to lure riders away from Uber, and now the company has a new offer that promises to pay users in New York City if they can find an Uber fare that’s cheaper than a comparable Gett ride.

New Year’s Eve surge pricing enrages Uber users; one man hit with $1,100 fare

Uber has become a staple in markets where it’s available, offering people a simplified alternative to taxi cabs at what are typically competitive prices. Sometimes, however, Uber’s prices can skyrocket due to its surge pricing policy, which drives up prices in busy areas where Uber cars are in high demand. It goes without saying that New Year’s Eve was going to be a pricey night to use Uber, but the company’s customers weren’t prepared for just how much prices would be inflated. Now, horror stories are sweeping the Internet as some users report having to pay as much as 10 times normal rates without what they perceived as fair warning. More →
