    • – Running Dynamics (Vertical Oscillation, Ground Contact Time, Cadence)
       – Recovery Advisor, Recovery Time, Race Predictor
    • Addition of GLONASS (for increased GPS accuracy)
    • – Indoor Treadmill support (without a footpod pace/distance)
    • No Bluetooth Smart sensor support (i.e. BLE heart rate sensors)
    • In using units in three different global locations, I found that all three picked up satellites within 10 seconds, and in one case the unit hadn’t been turned on in that country previously.  The EPO data can be downloaded for 7 days in advance.
    • Next, there’s Race Predictor.  This takes the estimated VO2Max values and then corresponds it with data for your particular gender and age from the Cooper Institute to determine the theoretical best case time for a given distance.  Note that this doesn’t mean you’ve trained enough to do so, but rather just that your VO2Max would allow you to do so.
    • ABC analysis is a popular technique to understand and categorize inventories.
    • Given a list of items (part numbers, unit costs & number of units needed for assembly), how do we automatically figure which class each item belongs to?
    • Cumulative Units: Once we know the rank of each item, next we need to figure out how many total units are needed for items ranked less or equal.
    • The formula for this is, =SUMIFS(['# Units],[Rank],"<="&[@['#]])

       

      Remember, [@[‘#]] refers to running numbers (1,2,3….4692,4693)

    • Uber clearly disagrees. Its terms of service, like those of Lyft, Sidecar, and similar sharing-economy startups like Airbnb, make it clear over and over again that they are not liable under any circumstances for bad things that might happen when you use the service.

       

      “YOU EXPRESSLY WAIVE AND RELEASE THE COMPANY FROM ANY AND ALL ANY LIABILITY, CLAIMS OR DAMAGES ARISING FROM OR IN ANY WAY RELATED TO THE THIRD PARTY TRANSPORTATION PROVIDER,” Uber’s terms of service say.

    • Does it apply to Uber? Uber thinks so, but experts aren’t sure. Since Uber does control some of the matchmaking — passengers can’t choose their drivers, and prices are controlled by Uber — it might not be a free enough marketplace to qualify, said lawyer Venkat Balasubramani. Even Eric Goldman, a Santa Clara University law professor who usually staunchly defends Section 230, wasn’t sure that Uber would qualify: “There’s a fine line between an online marketplace and a retailer,” he said.
    • “Congress has not provided an all purpose get-out-of-jail-free card for businesses that publish user content on the Internet,” the judge wrote in the opinion.
    • Lawyers could also claim that Uber didn’t adequately warn users that they ride at their own risk, especially after the modeling website ruling suggested that online marketplaces can still be found liable for “failure to warn.”
    • “We recognize the liability stops with us,” Rathbone said. “People do not have to sign away all their rights to be a passenger in a taxicab.”
