Re: Uber. Again.

Indeed. To me though, they've been tainted from the beginning and I see no reason to believe that they're a good thing. I'm not so prissy that I'll book my own separate taxi if I'm in a group going somewhere and somebody's insisting on getting an Uber, but I suspect I'll die never having booked an Uber or installed the app.

One thing I really dislike about them is how a certain percentage of talk at parties or nights out has been annexed by Uber. At a certain point suddenly everybody's staring at their phones and waffling on about "surges". It's like being trapped in a kitchen at a party with someone who wants to talk about mortgages.
