NEW DELHI: One of the world’s largest travel e-commerce companies, US-headquartered Booking Holdings is set to enter India’s highly competitive online flight-booking market along with its car rentals platform, Rentalcars.com and restaurant reservation platform OpenTable. The company, formerly known as Priceline Group, plans to integrate all these offerings under one umbrella in the domestic market. Nasdaq-listed Booking Holdings currently operates its hotel-aggregator brand and namesake Amsterdam-based Booking.com in the country. This move may pit the company with over $14 billion in global revenues against the likes of Makemytrip, Zomato and Swiggy and give it a leg up over competitors such as Oyo and Airbnb. Rentalcars.com will be called Booking.com Transport. The new offerings are currently under beta testing in India, and the company plans to launch them soon, Ritu Mehrotra, country manager-India, Sri Lanka and Maldives told TOI. “In 2020 we are looking at … [Read more...] about Booking.com eyes India flight and car rentals

Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said Wednesday that Iran should not pin its hopes on Europe saving the 2015 nuclear deal and could exit the pact. "There is no problem with negotiations and keeping contact with the Europeans, but you should give up hope on them over economic issues or the nuclear deal," Khamenei told President Hassan Rouhani and his cabinet, according to comments published on his official website.

European powers Germany, France and Great Britain have been struggling to ensure Iran reaps the promised economic benefits of the nuclear deal in the wake of the United States' exit from the accord in May. The first tranche of renewed US sanctions on Iran went into force earlier in August and a second, more … [Read more...] about Khamenei doubtful Europe can save Iran nuclear accord
Welcome to Cars Technica, Ars’ new dedicated auto section! Those of you who recognize my byline or have been following Reviews Editor Lee Hutchinson’s ongoing romance with Tesla will probably know that our move into auto coverage isn’t such a shock. But if you’re scratching your head wondering why vehicles have invaded your favorite tech website, it’s actually a natural result of the auto industry encroaching into our traditional areas of coverage. There’s a lot of technological innovation going into our vehicles, and much of it is silicon-based. What we used to call convergence is now the "Internet of Things," and our vehicles are definitely an example of those "things." As Moore’s law continues to double the number of transistors on a chip every 18 months, so the number of these chips in new vehicles continues to grow at a similarly exponential pace. Infotainment systems are increasingly permanently connected to the Internet, and car makers … [Read more...] about How can cars keep up with gadget innovation?
This story originally appeared in the April issue of San Francisco. At the heart of many of the Bay Area’s tech megacorporations is a simple quid pro quo: In return for free media, professional connections, or cheap rides, you surrender privacy. Now, inevitably, that arrangement has moved into the realm of housing, with a hush-hush startup asking tenants to sacrifice privacy in return for a discount spot inside a gleaming new luxury tower. Say you’re young and new to town. Forget settling down in an illegal Craigslist in-law or behind a curtain in a Richmond district living room as your young, striving forebears once did. For about $1,300 a month, you can now be safely housed within 40 stories of concave blue-glass facade at 340 Fremont Street. Or, if you prefer a grittier vibe, you can put down roots at Potrero 1010, where you can see (and hear) the traffic on I-280 rattle away beneath your window. These arrangements, which come complete with subdivided bedrooms … [Read more...] about Startup is quietly packing SF’s empty luxury rentals with millennials
