Car Thing by Spotify



Not a bad plan. We just gotta wait and see :thumbsup:


I envy @professor, wish I could do the same. No proper commuting options for me, so we car pool, better than driving multiple vehicle going same places.


SO I accept most people simply cannot de-car themselves like that, but over time almost everyone can. Pick your jobs, pick your home, the option to choose comes up often. In most cases when I challenge people its usually a facile excuse. The most common valid reason is related to children as they cannot so easily be moved around without a car and one cannot necessarily get near schools. That can be fixed easily, just takes time and will and politics to catch up.


If things go my way, would really live 100% virtual and work from home and patio, no commute. I can spend the commute time for trail walk and be more productive :blush:


It is quite viable, just takes a sustained direction to align career, where you live, proximity to schools etc. You don’t have to live in an expensive place to be just near a job. As you pay for a car after tax, if you also happen to live in an expensive place, effectively you have to earn double because that extra salary to pay for all the costs is being taxed about 40% plus the car cost itself.

My last major career change when I got made redundant was based on the criteria of not driving, I moved to only home with bike+train and that saves me effectively 2 hour/day not going to the driving god. As it turns out then I ended up working from home 90% so probably could have lived further from the jobs somewhere cheaper, but that’s now my next change.

I accept its not going to work for everyone, but if even just 20%-50% who could, would, then the reduced congestion and pollution would benefit everyone. So we all gain. We don’t have to wear sack cloth


There is lot of scope for car pools, public transport use, but still don’t see people using it unless there are laws / legislations brought. Some countries are already employing odd / even number plate auto use, no auto for heavy fog / smog days,…

May be bring more days when there are no auto on roads


Interesting “thing” but weird name, as someone already pointed out. Not sure what marketing branding did there


Roav Viva did this sometime back last year - bundle Amazon Music with Viva / Viva P… I never use / used amazon music though.

Was going through social media, saw this old post from Aug 2018



Yea I’ve never used Amazon music before either. It may be worth keeping an eye on. Thanks :thumbsup:
