Hi guys, I'm Doug and I lead the team at Mystro. Mystro automates dual-apping Uber and Lyft. Mystro blew up in 2019, but we ran into major problems with our Lyft automation that pretty much broke the app. After many months of hard work, we've finally gotten those bugs worked out, and I'm coming here now asking for your help!Have you used Mystro or any other dual-apping tools? If so, do they work for you?What would be your dream automation tool? We have an awesome engineering team here and we're excited to build Mystro into a tool ...
I get that it is dangerous to be a nurse/doctor right now and I appreciate all they do but this really rubbed me the wrong way. I was driving this nurse to work the other night and she was going on about how much danger she is in and how little she makes in comparison. I was just sort of agreeing along, not paying too much attention. But then she starts talking about how rides for essential workers should really be free... awkward silence. then she said "In the past other uber drivers have shut off the app for me." ...
Awesome. What time to be alive. Cell phones hanging from trees.Someone places several devices in a tree located close to the station where deliveries originate. Drivers in on the plot then sync their own phones with the ones in the tree and wait nearby for an order pickup. The reason for the odd placement, according to experts and people with direct knowledge of Amazon’s operations, is to take advantage of the handsets’ proximity to the station, combined with software that constantly monitors Amazon’s dispatch network, to get a split-second jump on competing drivers.https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2020-09-01/amazon-drivers-are-hanging-smartphones-in-trees-to-get-more-work
Is that legit? or better yet, legal? I am not breaking the terms of using the Uber account as I am the one with the account and credite card. I have three children and I'd love to utilize Uber or Lyft. Safe too.
Please do share. Remember when some dude died after getting kicked off Lyft? I can't help it to think he did something to be kicked out, you know?

I get that this is noble of this man to live so frugally but articles like this really grind my gears. It is because of stories like this that people think 25k is a living wage 😡 https://www.cnbc.com/2020/09/10/budget-breakdown-of-a-23-year-old-uber-driver-earning-25000-dollars-a-year.html
Even calling into a customer service call (at a bank or whatever), we have the choice of asking not to be recorded. What about with rideshares like Uber and Lyft?
I understand that the car is a private property, and drivers have the rights to record inside their cabin. However, do I have the right to not be recorded upon request?
