How can Uber overcome a sexism in the association culture?

Welcome behind to another week of MashTalk. On this week’s podcast, a Mashable tech group chats about Uber’s sexism in a workplace problems, Instagram’s new albums feature, and a latest Apple rumors.

As always, MashTalk is hosted by Tech Editor Pete Pachal with explanation from Chief Correspondent Lance Ulanoff and Senior Tech Correspondent Raymond Wong. 

To tell us all about Uber’s calamity conditions (1:36), we brought in a special guest, Business Editor Jason Abbruzzese.

Uber’s furious ride

If we haven’t kept adult with a Uber saga, here’s a lowdown: Former Uber operative Susan J. Fowler penned a harrowing essay about sexism and unhandy HR practices during a ride-sharing giant. In it, she shares sum of passionate nuisance and corporate loosening that reads like something out of a TV drama. 

You unequivocally have to read it for yourself to know how deeply secure a problems are — problems that approaching won’t be fast solved notwithstanding a full investigation that Uber’s CEO Travis Kalanick betrothed shortly after a allegations.

More than anything, Uber’s problems extend over a only one company. Sexism in a workplace is a problem during many companies and a male-dominated startup enlightenment of Silicon Valley in particular. 

Fowler’s story is a wakeup call for all companies (4:56) and a sign that this form of enlightenment is not OK and shouldn’t be tolerated. 

Exactly what stairs should Uber take to save a company’s busted image? Lance has a handful of ideas (6:04).

Picture not perfect

Moving on, we discuss either Instagram is busted now that “albums” are here (14:04). Yes, a underline Instagram formerly tested on Android is now official. 

Pete, who wrote a obituary for Instagram a weeks back, thinks Instagram’s really hint is left now that people will only chuck adult an manuscript of all their pics instead of delicately curating their best ones to publish.

While we determine to some grade (being a precisionist that we am), we know that Instagram no longer cares to be a place where a best calm is, though simply the place for all content, either that’s photos, videos, memes or whatever.

It will, however, be engaging to see how brands use albums to tell stories (19:23) in mixed photos. This is fundamentally a lapse of a slideshow.

Maximum iPad

And lastly, we speak new iPads. Apple’s approaching to reason an eventuality in Mar to announce new iPads — 4 if a latest rumors are right (22.41).

According to Macotakara, Apple will refurbish a existent 7.9-inch iPad mini, 9.7-inch iPad Pro, 12.9-inch iPad Pro and supplement a new 10.5-inch iPad to a family. 

All of them are due for an refurbish so a timing is really right (23:55). Will all of them get Apple Pencil support? And is there even a indicate in a new iPad mini given how renouned a Plus-sized iPhones are crawl (26:34)
