I will delay the update as long as possible, so that the anti-telemetry (such a nice way of saying spying) programs have a chance to catch up.

IfUber acts as a "radio rental service", theywould still only be able to rent radios to drivers with a Private Hire Drivers' Licence.
All vehicles used by the drivers woud also have to have passed an inspection at a licensed garage every 6 months.. In London new applicants must get a Topographical Skill Certificate.
This is not discriminating against Uber, it is Uber trying to ignore current regulations.
Sounds like a GCHQ appologist. I grew up near army bases when the IRA were targetting anthing military, including groups like the sea cadets. The remote risk of being caught in a bomb (or mortar) blast was an acceptable price for freedom.
Giving up freedom for a supposed increase in safety is a mug's bargain.
Terran Conflict is excellent, and the ability to build entire fleets means I'm still playing it (having bought it when it was released). I can't play any later verisons though, as I have a serious loathing of Steam.

Not content with keeping track of everything you do online (I now refuse to play EA games online because of their intensive monitoring), but downloading a patch will provoke all your user info to be upoaded.
noteable absent from comments so far: CivNet & Call to Power.
Civnet - we played multiple networked games on the Uni comps - with the first player to finish starting the countdown to next turn - giving a premium to the agility of a small empire.
CtP - great concepts, still more advanced than Civ5 in some ways, but let down by gameplay. I still look at it sometimes and think, if only...
