I can't read this with a straight face:

The changes include giving users things to do other than call a ride when they open up the app — such as order food and view public transportation options. It’s another example of how the company is trying to branch out from ride-hailing, in a push to become profitable.

    I think they are in the "throw everything at the wall and see what sticks" phase now.

    Operating system fir my daily life is my family and friends. Only time I think of UBER or when I write or tweet about them. These people have such visions of grandeur.
