Uber faces double battle against ban and scrutiny of hiring practices10h Uber faces double battle against ban and scrutiny of hiring practices
The Guardian
Tom Elvidge, the ride-hailing group’s London manager, says it has not been asked to make changes but would ‘like to know what we can do’. Uber will be fighting for its future on two fronts this week, as the ride-hailing service attempts to reverse the revocation of its London licence while appealing against a landmark ruling on the way it engages its drivers. The dual efforts will come against the backdrop of the company being branded a “disgrace” by the shadow chancellor, John McDonnell, while the Labour leader, Jeremy Corbyn, said Transport for London (TfL) had raised “serious concerns” about safety but suggested Uber would have an opportunity to “mend its ways”.

iPhone 8: muted reaction and small queues lead to questions over demand41h iPhone 8: muted reaction and small queues lead to questions over demand
The Guardian
Apple’s star might be shining a little less brightly with the iPhone 8, which is overshadowed by impending release of the £999 iPhone X As the iPhone 8 goes on sale, questions remain over the demand for Apple’s latest offering following smaller crowds outside stores and a muted customer reaction. The iPhone 8 and 8 Plus, two of the three new iPhones in Apple’s 2017 lineup, went on sale around the world, starting in Australia where hundreds of people have usually gathered outside Apple’s Sydney city store for previous launches. But instead of queues winding down the street there were fewer than 30 people lining up before the store opened on Friday.
