Ebay Sues Amazon Claiming Illegal And Unethical Activity
Bill Johnson 10/18/2018 4:41:55 PM

Good point. And that was far from #Uber's only crime. They are probably one of the most unethical companies around. Yet they still make a bundle. Same with #Amazon. Even if they lose in court, it will likely amount to a minor slap on the wrist - a tiny percentage of the profits they reaped from this activity.

As long as the punishments are insignificant, the crimes will continue as the reward far outweighs the risk. I hope #eBay wins.

Ebay Sues Amazon Claiming Illegal And Unethical Activity
Danny Straus 10/18/2018 4:33:29 PM

This doesn't surprise me in the least. Remember when #Uber tried to kill #Lyft by having a team constantly order and then cancel cars to annoy its drivers and passengers (when no cars would be available). Unfortunately, just because a big company is involved, doesn't mean ethical practices are. In fact I'd suspect that most companies GOT big by cheating. Just watch the tv show #Billions.

HyreCar Inc. (HYRE) Stock: Selling Shovels In A Gold Rush

Never heard of $HYRE. Interesting model, but if successful I suspect #Uber will either buy them or simply replicate their offering.

When will there be an #Uber IPO?

Gary Anderson, you would probably like this article. It does a good job highlighting some of the risks of self driving cars. #uber

Uber Reports Massive $1.5 Billion 3Q Loss As Two Investors Drop Out Of New Financing Round
Leslie Miriam 11/30/2017 6:03:06 PM

The cab lobby is powerful in Israel. But I suspect this had more to do with #Waze - the Israeli GPS app purchased by #Google ($GOOGL). Waze recently started a car sharing aspect to their app and #Uber would have competed greatly with this.

Uber Reports Massive $1.5 Billion 3Q Loss As Two Investors Drop Out Of New Financing Round

#Uber grew vastly my just "doing it" and worrying about the ramifications later. In way, this was very smart. As they grew and got noticed by traditional cab companies, lobbyists, and the government, it was no longer easy for them to shut them down. Politicans have to answer to voters who loved Uber and wanted to see them succeed.

Those scandals are making it harder to love them. And other countries are quick to ban them before they manage to get a foothold. #Israel just banned Uber for example.

I think most of #Uber's problems revolve around the scandals surrounding it and it's founder.

#Uber is a revolutionary company but it is under siege from new competitors, media and regulators. The company suffers from the same money losing tendencies of most unicorns, which does not help matters. However under new leadership the company does stand a good chance of turning things around, if company goes public at a solid valuation would definitely consider buying.

Socially responsible riders should use #Lyft or another ride service over #Uber. Together we can make Uber's path even bumpier than it is already!

It is amazing what users will put up with to save a few bucks. #uber

Weed Investor 10/3/2017 10:09:12 AM

Yes, with all the problems the company and founder are facing, I would say #Uber's days are finished Except... users love the company too much to give it up.

Barry Hochhauser 10/2/2017 11:51:08 PM

A bumpy road indeed. Being sued by your own board of directors is likely problematic. Not mention how #Uber was recently banned from the UK.

Car Sales Were Always Going Over This Cliff
Danny Straus 6/20/2017 9:42:52 PM

Had no idea #AutoSales were this bad. Then again, I had been thinking of buying a car until I discovered #Uber. Ever since, I've been pushing it off.

Billion Dollar Unicorns: Careem Is The Latest Middle East Unicorn
Abe Jouejati 2/15/2017 4:18:04 PM

This looks like a tough market for #Careem, despite its success, #Uber, #Lyft and others have global presence with proven business models to reduce costs. In fact, as a customer of Uber and Lyft;, Lyft was actually cheaper. Gaining market share involves the uncertainty of consumers switching over.
