"The reason Uber [is] expensive is because you’re not just paying for the car — you’re paying for the other dude in the car. When there’s no other dude in the car, the cost of taking an Uber anywhere becomes cheaper than owning a vehicle." Travis Kalanick in May 2014 Guys you are a huge liability, for those who cant see it i feel sorry, those who know what a liability means in any business i am sure you have a second plan Uber is absolutely desperately to get rid of us and it doesn't hide it, you still have the power being the supplier of his business, in any business the supplier have big or low bargain power, as an individual that power is very low but as a group-unity then the power becomes high and when the power is high the supplier can decide the future of the business this is why uber doesn't want unions and drivers to be united I am sure nobody will pay attention to this and will ignore it, for uber the more dumb you are the better....

I saw this article http://www.techinsider.io/uber-ceo-travis-kalanick-on-self-driving-cars-2015-10 In the last year, Uber has poached more than 40 autonomous vehicle experts from the robotics program at Carnegie Mellon University, as well as top car security researchers. This move comes at a time when the likes of Google, Apple, and Tesla are all working on some sort of autonomous-driving projects. Kalanick says he believes Google to be the farthest ahead, but that we're still a while away from seeing any company's self-driving cars on the roads. For us, we're a tech company, so we've said, let's be part of that. It's a super exciting place to be They are investing in new technologies with our help, money made from us How ironic can this be, we are helping uber to get rid of US! They say by 2020 is going to be a real thing, hopefully i will finish my car finance by that time :)
