Earlier this week, Uber cut its fares in its home market of San Francisco, as part of its intensifying price war with traditional taxi services and ride-sharing rivals such as Lyft. After raising more than $1bn last month, Uber has the biggest war chest in the business. But is this sustainable?

The ridesharing price war continues: UberX rates cut by another 25% in SF Bay Area, for a "limited time"... http://t.co/DgRRvm3yWx · Tim Bradshaw
Previous rate cuts have angered some drivers because they receive less from each ride. But Fortune's Ellen Huet discovered that Uber is making up some of the difference - and so taking a loss on every ride as it fights for market share. 
My tweet on whether investors would be happy about Uber's expensive tactics set off a debate among other tech reporters including Kevin Roose of New York Magazine, Farhad Manjoo of the New York Times, and former Reuters finance blogger and occasional FT columnist Felix Salmon.

Google's challenge to Facebook made the front page of Wednesday's edition of the FT, with further analysis inside

Here's Google's official blog post announcing Google+ and its accompanying video:

Bradley Horowitz, Google's 'product dude', has been developing Google+ alongside Vic Gundotra, SVP for social. 

In one early look, Danny Sullivan, editor of Search Engine Land, gave Google+ a lukewarm reception:
