Newsweek may suck, but this piece was just awful. Seriously guys, maybe you could learn something from David Sirota. And, if anyone wants to read an interesting perspective on this, go to Salon:

@groblewis Apple could have developed the product, but the key point is, they didn't. It's hard to guess what Apple has planned in the product pipeline this year, but I'm guessing it's probably a Smartwatch.

This should have been an obvious acquisition for Apple. Now they just look like a company without many new ideas, sitting on a huge pile of cash.
Maybe it's time for the mature executives at the company to step up and take some responsibility for their drivers. It's a smart business decision. Fearful customers can quickly become former customers.

@Antonio Alvarado - Once I quickly figured you were trying to just self-advertise, I tuned out. Back to our regularly scheduled discussion about Hyperloop.
5 months, 2 weeks ago on Elon Musk’s Hyperloop is possible. But is it plausible?
In the same way that Elon thought he could build Tesla with only Silicon Valley entrepreneurial types and not those 'old school car guys', he finally had to widen his reach to hire people who actually know something about automobile design and vehicle dynamics. For Hyperloop, it may be useful to bring in real transportation infrastructure experts, and not just rocket scientists.
Electric automobiles and rockets were been built before Elon Musk came onto the scene. He just did it significantly better than his predecessors. Hyperloop is a completely new and untested idea. I might have believed it was possible until I read this:
In it's current derivation, this is a completely stupid idea that is not practical and won't work.
I just tried out CoverHound. The four quotes it provided were all higher than my current insurance policy for the same level of coverage. What incentive is there for me to return to their website to go through this exercise again?

Another totally stupid idea that shouldn't have received any funding.
For people who already have auto insurance, getting a quote that is not at least 10% below the price of their current policy is unlikely to make them switch. Shopping for insurance is not like trading stocks. Constantly chasing the lowest price policy has a significant hassle factor associated with it.
It appears that Tutorspree had a predictable and fatal flaw in their revenue model.
Common sense would say use Tutorspree for the tutor and the student to connect, then negotiate a rate outside of Tutorspree that eliminates their cut.

Maybe even worse than these bad products by Facebook is seeing how the tech press so easily gets suckered into attending and covering these so-called events, when it's easy to see there is nothing there.
