Quotes

We did an article that really took on Yelp culture, and people really responded to it. So I think that was a sign to us, "Oh, this is an area we can delve into a little further."
Online services such as Unpakt "play into the bigger debate within our industry, whether it ever makes sense to work with a broker" Darr said
...the installed devices were designed to help track stolen computers or customers who missed payments, they also captured private images, including "Social Security numbers; medical records; private emails to doctors; bank and credit card statements; and webcam pictures of children, partially undressed individuals, and intimate activities at home" the FTC said
One tongue-in-cheek Yelp review reads: "1. They don't deliver to Los Angeles. It's only 6-8 hours away depending on traffic. 2. Brad Pitt doesn't work there :( was hoping to see him. 3. They asked what I wanted, I said "world peace" and they didn't deliver."
