They are missing many points about Uber. Two big ones are: It is fast because of their driver ubiquity. And their drivers have a reputation that matters because it follows their profile which has customer feedback. These are good.

The downside is that this is austerity sock-puppetry saying, "We are not going to be building anymore public transit. Share your shit among the techno-poors instead."

General Petraeus was busted in an affair because he and his paramour thought that if the two of them shared a login on gmail and the wrote each other by leaving emails in the drafts folder and never "sending them" ... that that would keep them safe because the information "never went anywhere".

Stupidity and general misunderstanding of how the internet and internet applications work aside ... it did not change things. It will be seen as a new tool for marking enemies and aiding one's self.

Adding features does not necessarily increase functionality -- it just makes the manuals thicker.
