    I have said it before ... this romantic notion of UBER using technology to lead us into a glorious future of plenty for all .. is crap. they are simply a bunch of tech nerds who figured out how to split a nickel into 7 parts and keep 3 for themselves. the looser in this will be the drivers who get suckered in. but they will only figure it out 3 years down the road, after the bandits run off with the proceeds of the IPO.
