Why, oh fucking WHY is their Python Code in the repository? Hasn't the world had enough of it, yet?
I really have to vehemently disagree with you contention of:
A simple example would be C and C++'s never ending supply of bugs related to dangling pointers, memory leaks etc., many of which are caused by inherent default choices in the language.
If I were to judge your age based on your user ID number, I would day you have been around long enough to know the old saying, "I malloc, therefor I free"
C and to a lesser extent, C++ are quite excellent tools, and for that matter most all other tools are written in those two languages by competent software engineers who actually know what they are doing.
Don,t blame the tool, place the incompetent tool user.
Why tethering AND unlimited data is a big deal?
The idiot developers that want everything in [ insert the name of your currently favorite dev language here ] including security!
They all want a single, or better yet, no username and password on the db in question! When will the developers EVER learn, anything
A device that shuts your phone off unless the vehicle is not running.
Because Java! Not the worst programming language ever, but the problems that come from garbage collection and programmers who THINK they understand it.
We need to get off of the HTML/CSS/ crazy drunken bandwagon and get back to basics! Re-boot and re-tool the the entire process because if we don't we are just screwed and more break ins will happen as the things become more and more complex. You need to let DBA's build the database portions of things and secure access. You need to let Systems people write HARDENED code. Let web guys make things pretty. You need to stop demanding a a single point tool and go back to individual inter working parts, written by competent coders, which are then put through a very severe hardening process.
Interesting question. "Car Service" is,at least in the US, have always been one of those business that are not defined as Taxi's. Car Service, have been 1 to many employee's. They are regulated by the limousine side of the Taxi and Limousine as a single payment ( including taxes and tolls ) per destination. But payment is made to the driver, after the trip, and those companies must pay drivers a salary, not a percentage of a fare. If the company has more than 50 employees ( including office, personnel, mechanics, drivers, etc.) then they have to also provide healthcare
How the hell is working FOR Uber entrepreneurship.
Can you Grow your Business?

No You work for Uber.
You are making a false assumption.
Digital ANYTHING over the air for listening just plain sucks.
If your signal is not perfect you simply don't hear anything. If I am WAY away from an analog broadcast, it might be fuzzy, it might in and out of stereo but I can still HEAR and understand it. With digital, one the signal gets fuzzy is just does not decode it.
This is only one of the reasons why cops and fire fighters hate the new digital radios.
Real Programmers don't write in PL/I. PL/I is for programmers who can't decide whether to write in COBOL or FORTRAN.
