    DOCKLESS.  That means you can leave the bike anywhere, and others find it using GPS.

    This paints a funny imagery in my head.  People abandoning the thing everywhere.  Upon arriving at a building, they'd just jump off while the bike is still moving, and ends up being inside a bush.

    Imagine following the red beacon on your GPS like a scavenger hunt, and finally arriving at the bike.  Only to find that it's up in a tree or inside a dumpster.

    Let's start taking bets on when they will sell off this business like their stupid leasing company.

    I think this is great.  As part of the urban renewal projects, they started designating certain neighborhoods to be "car free."  This can promote such initiatives.  I am all for it.  Super green.

    Oh, those things are awesome.  They are self-propelled, right?  Like my push-mower.

    I suspect so many would get stolen or go missing.  I bet they are all gone within 9 months of launch.
