Meanwhile, in Uber API’s Terms of Service, it says you may not use it alongside any competitive services...does guess Google get a “free pass” to disobey one of the very few rules?

As an avid motorcycle rider I was pretty stoked to see this news. Just plugged a random Bangkok ride for fun - Thailand Cultural Centre to Thanon Phaya Thai. 7.7km trip (~4.78 miles). That ‘moto’ ride would cost an estimated 54-68 baht ($1.51-1.91 USD for the curious). There’s no surge in that area right now, so Read more

Very interesting. Makes me think they should team up with Google if this takes off - Combine some Google Maps functionality and necessity into the route that auto-Uber cars tend to drive on. Why not. Read more

Just do yourself a favor and check the current rate(s) JUST before requesting a ride/considering leaving. I’ve seriously seen rather large surges just drop down or disappear within 5 minutes. Save. Your. Money.

Totally depends on the city/Uber market. But I’d agree that new drivers in general tend to be ‘fare-happy’. I didn’t know my rating until a driver recently said how he saw I was rated 5 stars! I don’t take tooooo many rides, and I consider myself a pretty courteous/fair person, But I was still happy to hear that. Now Read more

Well...Between their “app” and super-futuristic-high-tech new Taxi, They sure are doing what they can to keep up with Uber. But overall trip cost & typical driver personalities still need to be addressed if they want a fighting chance.

Fellow Phoenix...er here. Proud of our city for realizing that the benefits, safety, economy & future potential are very worthwhile. Yellow cabs will soon be a thing of the past.

Now that’s neat. I’m no beer snob but I instantly thought of all the people who went “yeah...top rated by who....”. I guess they need to know their nightlife as well as they know their code - to make this all work :)

But why is this Uber’s problem to begin with? Why must they take the heat & large dent in business/growth? One could argue that if Uber driver’s aren’t there, Then there would actually be even more cars on the road; Because those who were going to hitch a ride to their destination, Are now forced to take their own Read more

Uber ASSIST has actually been around for a bit, I’m assuming perhaps they’ve been testing it in just a small handful of cities. I think it’s awesome what they’re doing; Helping the elderly/disabled get around easier. Read more

I’m probably one of the last people you should take work productivity advice from... But for me - I know that I just have to convince myself to *start*. Just start. Start whatever it is I need to be doing. I have noticed time and time again, That once you force yourself just to begin the tedious task... Suddenly it’s Read more
