Sidestage, a platform for booking bands, DJs and other musicians for private gigs, is now open to users in London, following an initial launch in Berlin in July. For the London launch, Sidestage has a handful (around 25, to be precise) of musicians ready to book immediately, with prices ranging from around €120 to more than €15,000 to book the electronic duo Azedia. Interested musicians can pop along to chat with the Sidestage team at its meetup on September 9 in London.

sqwiggle_ipad

Sqwiggle, a platform for helping remote teams work together more efficiently by utilizing always-on group video chat, has just launched its first iPad app, building on its established Web and Mac apps. Soft-launched a few days back, the iPad app has been designed to work in tandem with the desktop app. So when you open it, all the potential video streams move across to the iPad, but all the text chat stays on the desktop. Closing the app automatically moves any conversations back to the desktop. Just like the desktop, the iPad app will also show still images of each team…

Barcelona Cabs Strike Against Uber Taxi App

Car-hailing service Uber has been banned from operating its services anywhere in Germany, according to German newspaper Der Spiegel today. The report says that a Frankfurt court has blocked Uber from operating as it does not hold the necessary paperwork for carrying out a taxi service in the country – an official permit under the Passenger Transport Act is required. The decision follows a temporary injunction in Berlin that lifted four days after being issued. As was the case in Berlin, Uber is free to appeal the court’s decision, but the ramifications are more serious this time around as the ban applies…

A new version of Opera’s browser for Mac, Windows and Linux has landed with a useful tab preview feature. This lets users see a large preview of a webpage by hovering the mouse over a tab, in the form of the most recent snapshot of the site. Opera 24 also comes with user interface improvements — Windows users with very dense displays can now get a sharper-looking UI (instead of the display being scaled), which the company says is “similar to what Opera for Mac users get on Retina screens.” In line with the release of Opera 24, the company…
