Not sure why people use uber, we had a local guy pay $1100 for a $15 cab ride. What a complete idiot, did not even realize it was surge pricing.

I will take a cab any day in the week. At least I know what I am paying.

As to IOS MOBA, even the article says it works best on a ipad. The phone's screen is way too small for a game like that.

It's hard not to realize surge pricing. It gives you a big popup.

In any case, why use Uber? Because it's significantly easier and cheaper than taxis. In nicer cars. "Significantly" is an understatement.

There are large issues. Surge pricing is one of them. Liability is a much larger one. Corporate douchelords running the joint is another.

But the product is infinitely more convenient, better priced, and nicer than the competition.

Exactly. Here in DC it's almost impossible to find a cab that will take you out of the city (and I live under a mile across the DC line).

Often times, once you find one, they'll only take you if you pay them a certain amount. Then you can be sure that their credit card reader is malfunctioning, despite being required to have one.

Cabs can get fucked.
