Uber to test letting riders record trip chats

A test run of the option is planned to start next month in Brazil and Mexico, with the potential to expand it beyond those countries."If necessary, this tool can help give us more clarity about what happened inside the vehicle on a trip," Uber global security products director Sachin Kansal said in an online post.The move comes amid rising concerns over safety and reports of assaults and harassment in rideshare vehicles.

Today we unwrap Graeme Smith breaking Sir Donald Bradman's record of setting the highest Test score by an overseas player at Lord's. Smith 's 259 surpassed Bradman's 73 year record of 254. Seasons Greetings from everyone at the Home of Cricket!
Steve Smith has become the fastest Test batsman to reach 7000 Test runs, breaking a 73-year record to claim the honour.
Smith reached the 7000-run milestone on Saturday afternoon in Adelaide with his 23rd run against Pakistan as Australia raced to a massive first-innings score.
Smith has taken just 126 innings to reach the mark, getting there in five faster than Englishman Walter Hammond who has held the record since 1946.
Smith's innings also took him past Don Bradman's career-mark of 6996 runs, lifting him to the 11th most prolific scorer in Australian Test history.
Bradman, meanwhile, had just 70 innings for 29 centuries in a career when World War II forced a break while he was still in his prime.
Comment: Why this scene should have Aussies smiling
While Steve Smith was dismissed four a dismal four runs, it should prove a blessing in disguise for Aussie fans.The top-order runs were a welcome relief after this year's Ashes series, where Australia consistently found themselves on the back foot early.
Scoring over 10,000 runs across a playing career in any format of cricket is considered a significant achievement. In the chase for achieving top scores, West Indian Garfield Sobers retired as the most prolific run scorer in Test cricket, with a total of 8,032 runs in 1974.

Still, it hasn't stopped the comparisons between the pair, with former Australian captain Allan Border leading the charge earlier in November.
"In straight out numbers (he's the best since Bradman)," he told AAP at the start of the summer.
"He has just been incredible. Not just in the Ashes but his whole career has been incredible.
"From what I understand, Bradman's technique wasn't one you would coach a kid.
"He just had a special way of doing things. And Smith is exactly the same. It's not the technique you would want to coach kids."
Bradman and Smith have the two highest averages in Test history for those who have played more than 20 innings, with Smith's 64.22 second to Bradman's 99.94.
