I get that you realize that I have been right the whole time. No need to throw baseless accusations.
Exactly - people want to see all this data
Yes (well, some).
and have Google log/display it.
Why do you think we (or anyone) want Google to log it? That is not needed, if I want it logged I would GREATLY prefer that be done by a local app of some kind, where I control the data from it directly.
I can imagine future politicians, where it's leaked exactly how many times the driver of his car went over 75MPH... as just one example why not everyone wants Google to log it.
This trope really needs to die. If people were treated like products they wouldn't use Google services.
Since people ARE treated as products by Google today, you are plainly wrong.
A hard fact is not a "trope" as much as you wish it might be.
Because you're paying the fucking Uber driver.
When I've had friends drive me somewhere I offer to pay for gas, and usually pay more than the gas would cost.
I really can't believe that people are still trying to pretend that Uber is just a ride-sharing service like giving your dear old mum a lift to the shops.
I can't believe you think that's what I am saying. I am not saying they ARE the same. I'm saying, legally, HOW ARE THEY DIFFERENT.
Since you can't answer that why should the law be able to?
I can't pay them to encourage them to ask.
Why do you think that makes sense?
It's just as poor an example, and badly worded at that.
In fact if you gave someone money without asking for sex, then they asked you for sex, that would in fact be quite legal... People do that every day in normal relationships.
Can you be picked up after calling a friend to come get you? If yes, why not when you "call" an Uber?
Just saying "legal monopoly" doesn't mean much without details.
I've been to London a number of times. I think London is the only city I've ever been where I really liked the cab system (black cabs specifically that is) - the drivers are friendly, the cars in great shape and clean.
But even so, what if you can't find one? If you call (if you can call) you might be waiting a long time, or have to walk a while to where you pick one up.
London is I think a model city where the black cabs and Uber can co-exist really well - because the black cabs already set a high bar of service, they are actually worth what the charge. Uber would take away minimal business from the black cabs overall, basically people who were really cheap or couldn't find a cab.
Why should you not lose in any group of humans if you are not willing to go along with power dynamics? You can either try to find a group that does not contain humans or you can figure out how to work with it.
You call them out and make whatever happens work for you as best you can.
For those that think power dynamics only applies to men, HA!
