Not sure if I call that an "early investment." As high as the valuation has been already, and with looming uncertainties around future revenue and oncoming competition, I am not sure if they can justify the $125B valuation they are now seeking for. and that's just where we start.
Gotta admit, Uber's presence is huge with its drivers and brand name. But will it behave more like a blue chip stock or will it be the technology growth stock that they are hoping they are.
I may jump on the hype with a handful but probably won't go all in.
Everything is Uber for ABC these days.
Oh, look! Dominoes have now announced themselves as Uber for Pizzas.
does uber accommodate for real?
I think they have enough to worry about; let's just let them be. They also drive ~10 hours straight. Perhaps we want them to be comfortable.
I am pretty sure they do have to be black.
and 1290 of those were false alarm for the girls' finger slipping from the phone.
I've had heated conversations about this with other drivers, ones that I don't particularly like. My take is that more experienced the drivers or those who used to be taxi drivers (or ones who drive UberBlacks) all know to 1) make some friendly conversations like, "How are you." and 2) be "quiet unless spoken to."
You are hired to drive them, not to talk to them. Can you imagine a waitress when asked "how are you?" tells you her life's problems? No.
The reason I've had heated conversations is around tips. Some swear that there is much more tip when there is a delightful conversatios. OK, maybe there is some truth to that, but I don't think trying to force conversations is well accepted.
but that's fine. It's like having a Thumbs Up and Thumbs Down buttons. What's the big deal.
and some drivers will rate you 1 to 3 stars. So those would have big impacts. That actually gives more weight to the 30 point system you mention.
wait, but who cares. We all just need to look at it as a hundred point system from 4.00 to 5.00. They give you two decimals, so use them. 4.71 means 71. 4.61 means 61.
It's the NYC Cabs all over again. They have a nice big button that says to turn it off though. MUTE or OFF. Actually, they did a good job with that.
Haven't you heard the recent news. Uber robot became self-aware and started killing people.
Yeah, I thought the driver was a woman when I first saw the video. no offense
If you bring food you better bring enough for the driver and yourself!
amen. it's just a scheduling feature. It just schedules your request . what's the point? it's a false sense of security
You can also look at the actual comments left by the riders...apparently. I frankly have never tried, because I am never on my computer.
Then again, Google pays billions on crazy other things. Oh, I guess Uber does too.
I would imagine the CC company wouldn't even know as the charges will still come from Uber. That's what I am guessing.
Monday mornings. Friday afternoons. Airports, train stations, etc.
Yes. I've driven plenty of people in LA, and they definitely use real names. Hollywoood, Santa Monica, Malibu, Long Beach, I actually asked one famous blogger why, and he told me, "why is there a harm? The driver will know when I get in the car, so it doesn't make a difference."
The moment I see a phrase like, "trying to win them back", I just shut down and stop paying attention. Is that just me?
