I propose a novel treatment: Seal pure water into a container and place it into a microwave oven for 1 millisecond (or a microsecond for extreme cases). Sell it as a homopathic treatment for $50/ounce.

Then shake shake shake. Then shake some more. Once you're done, shake....Shake, shake, repeat.

I ran into something like that with one of my netbooks. I forget the exact Intel video chip set, but they had outsourced it to another company. Said company had no interest in either opensourcing the driver or Linux support beyond REALLY slow. They were so anti-opensource, Intel didn't even have the data from the company for them to create a Linux driver.

Let's assume for a moment that the principal spent the last 35ish years off this planet and hence does not know what a Stormtrooper is...

What does he see? A guy in a plastic suit. Why would anyone who has anything indecent in mind put himself into gear that impacts his ability to move and see negatively?

The principal's behaviour is irrational at best. Insane at worst.

What does SHE see?

Remove the licenses for other taxi companies, and they will offer the same price as Uber.

Those companies already got the cars, trained drivers, a complete support network, decades of experience... They would bury Uber in any case where they would be allowed to play by the same rules.

Hell... they could probably forgo on the whole "mobile app" thing. Calling a dispatcher and getting assigned and forwarded the closest car is nothing particularly innovative and has worked since... well since one was able to use a phone to call a taxi. No need for GPS or touch screen or whatever...

Hell... call it a feature. "Retro-Taxi". For all the hipsters out there.

You know, I do need to get from point A to point B, but NOT if it involves skinny jeans...
