This is hilariously dishonest.

Conventional taxis don't have to go out of business - that's a strawman/misnomer. Why don't they provide their own apps to provide service to riders? Oh, right. Uber is doing what taxi services refuse to in a lot of instances. Uber isn't the problem here, but old outdated legislation is.

Taxi services don't operate 24/7 with 100% coverage, that is and never can be the case anywhere. Meanwhile, uber is opening up to other competition and enabling better coverage than the taxi services themselves provide.

To anyone who has a shred of fear of flying, the game of "screwing with the pilots for laughs" is not fucking funny.

Except that this has ZERO to do with what's going on. The fact that they broke the law to basically steal his laptop, this has nothing to do with screwing with the pilots.
