First off, the oldest taxi in LV is 2012. The oldest uber vehicle is 2005 mostly Toyota, hundai, and other cheap subcompacts. This is only the beginning for the uber cartel. Their real aim is to do an IPO, and bilk investors out of billions. You root for the disruption, you got it. This is much like the apple vs PC dynamic. First off, as a long time AAPL sjareholder, I can't thank you enough for paying $200 for $2 worth of RAM, $39 for a 39 charger on and on. Thank you again. Ha Ha Ha.

It's one thing to make an account to be able to ask a question on CD. But when someone makes an account only to respond to a specific topic and does not discuss anything else, then I have to assume that person has an agenda.

Equities are not really my point. My point is such vocal cheerleaders knew nothing of what they championed and were played like a cheap violin by the real cartel, uber. Its rare to see a large group get duped by exactly what they claim to detest. Another case of hope and change. This is too, too funny.

People got a taste of surge pricing and they don't like it.
A bunch of rides costing double that of a cab.
Uber is also taking a larger percentage of the fares than they originally claimed.

I think is is great that the article gave the exact same 3 examples from, actual customers though, that squib gave in various posts above.

Could it be that squibby is also e-mailing the LVRJ pretending to be multiple outraged customers?
