Gomyway.com A Fascinating Startup With An Incredible Ride-Sharing Concept

Published by:

gomyway

Okay folks, today we’ll be looking at a start-up with a difference I stumbled upon just recently. Named Gomyway (gomyway.com), this start-up aims to curb the hassles of transportation crisis in a unique never-seen-before scenario. Gomyway doesn’t exactly sends company owned taxis or pick-up cars for your travels, but… wait for it… allows normal car owners to assist other pedestrians shuttling intra and inter city.

gomyway
You may ask how’s this even possible?, it’s simple gomyway ‪Ride-sharing‬ concept is a unique concept whereby the rider and the passenger come to a mutual relationship, the car owner agrees to offer a lift to one or more persons usually at a very small fee (for fueling his/her ride). The gomyway platform helps the car owner and the would be passenger set an appoint as to what time the car owner would pick-up the passenger and at what pick-up location. (N.B: Pick-up location and time of pick-up is dependent on the car owner!)

More plausible is the fact that the service comes at no charge or cost whatsoever to either parties (that is aside the stipulated ‘fuel fee’ the car owner would request from the passenger), the new ride sharing scheme by gomyway is a very plausible and encouraging idea. Not just for the easing of transportation hassles, but for the re-kindering of the brotherly love we Nigerians are known for. With gomyway.com you could help make someone’s day by sharing your ride and making new friends in the process.

If you are a car owner and would love to share your ride with someone, simply log on to www.gomyway.com/register to sign-up as a ride-sharer, enter your details and you are done. Gomyway team would run verification of your details to ensure the safety of would-be passengers, same thing would be done when a passenger requests for a ride via the platform, so there’s a zero tolerance to risks associated with picking up strangers and accepting lifts from strangers. Please be kind to offer a ride to someone soon. Happy ride-sharing!

P.S: There’s also another of such ride-sharing platform called ‘Jekalo’ – didn’t know about it until today.

Apple q3 2015 fiscal report

Cupertino based tech giant – Apple has once again published it’s standing and performance report, with figures from it’s net profit and revenue for the third quarter of 2015 fiscal year. The current figures as released by the No2 phone maker for Q3 is a record net profit of $10.7 billion from $49.6 billion of revenue.

The figures from Apple’s Q3 2015 report is a massive bump compared to same period last year, where Apple took home $7.7 billion of net profit from $37.4 billion of revenue.

Apple sold 47.5 million iPhones during the quarter. That’s slightly below the analyst estimates of 49-50 million units, so the company’s stock took a small dip as a result. However, Apple’s iPhone related revenue grew by a whopping 59% from a year ago.

Interestingly, Apple did not specify the amount of Apple Watch units it sold during the quarter. All we know is that total sales of the wearable device amount to more than $1 billion. The tech giant’s CFO also revealed the demand for the smartwatch in the first nine weeks of its availability has exceeded the demand for the iPhone and the iPad in the same period after their debut.

Apple iPad sales have once again declined. The company moved 10.9 million tablets – down from 13.3 million in Q3 2014. Mac sales however, have grown from 4.4 million units last year to 4.8 million units this quarter.
