Asking because it seems they've used electric motors in a more direct capacity to allow them to ditch a traditional gearbox altogether, and since electric vehicles and supercars are both points of experience for you, you're in a unique position to share insight on where this kind of technology might end up.
In Uber... you get a new, higher end black car or SUV
Reading comprehension issues, much? The study compared UberX, not Uber Black or any of the other higher tier Uber offerings.
With GNOME and Firefox, it was said early on that bad UI changes were just experimental, and could be ignored. If they were bad, they'd be reverted. Well, they did turn out to be bad. They were very bad, in fact. Yet they were not reverted. Once they were in place, they were pretty much considered as being locked in. Any critics were ridiculed and silenced. There was no going back at that point. What is the end result? GNOME is basically a dead project, and Firefox is near death.
Sounds like the sunk cost fallacy in play. Lots of investment in a bad decision makes people feel obligated to stay the course because of the unrecoverable development time.
Personally identifiable information (PII) should be classified based on sensitivity. At a certain level, that PII must be encrypted during transit. At the highest level, it must be encrypted during transit and at rest. Social security number falls in the highest sensitivity level. Standard operating procedure for years. This doesn't guarantee you won't get hacked, but it reduces / minimizes the impact if you are hacked.
Not saying this to be a dick. Saying it because the way you come across right now is as someone who takes pride in stuffing jargon in the faces of others.
"My rights are for me and me alone."

Everything that's evaluated is done so against these two questions. With this in mind, the list of crimes which can sufficiently bar a person from cleared work is very, very low.
Whenever you decide to leave, the fact that you had a clearance might actually help counteract your priors.
The decisionmakers at ISPs don't have a piece of skin in this fight because they have special classes of access just as a benefit of being where they are within their companies, and they stand to make more personally from making profit-minded decisions. For these reasons, there's very little personal incentive to uphold the moral high ground because the decisions don't have an immediate negative impact on them. They might feel it once they retire and/or if they go to a different industry, but that's after they've made their profit, and it's long after their short-term decisionmaking window.
It's just human nature. We haven't had this trait bred out, and it's doubtful we as a species ever will. The only way to counter short-sighted thinking is by shortening the mental leap between short-sighted decisions and long-term consequences, which is what everyone fighting for net neutrality is trying to demonstrate right now by citing live examples of where a lack of enforcement has already gone wrong (T-Mobile Unlimited Music, Netflix v. Comcast/VZ, etc.)
