I thought I'd pass on an article and a video that sum up what Uber really deserves awards for – as opposed to the self-serving prize handed to itself by Uber investor Tech Crunch. This great pic comes from an article from the Daily Beast.This video, called Riding Dirty: How Uber Takes Drivers and Passengers for a Ride is one of the best summaries of this corrupt and dangerous venture-capitalized corporation that I've seen.There are a few weaknesses however:1. The video fails to point out that Uber's lower prices are only in effect when people don't use many cabs. Prices go up from 1.5 times to 9 times the ordinary rate when people actually need cabs.2. If taxies were to be run out of business one could expect to pay price-gorging rates (i.e. "surge-pricing") all the time.3. Even with hybrid policies, Uber's insurance would still give cover far less coverage than is standard for taxis.4. Uber, given the number of vehicles on the street, is a major polluter and street congester – definitely NOT a friend of the environment.5. The reason Uber's background checks are sketchy is that they REFUSE TO FINGERPRINT APPLICANTS which is the standard background check for any driving and most other jobs of any kind in the U.S.A.6. Most of what is said about Uber applies equally to Lyft.Anyway – Enjoy.And thanks to Hansu Kim for passing on the Video.
