Re: Uber self-driving cars: not very good

Agreed. Their competitive advantages lies in the speed in which they can get a ride to a user. Also, their partnership with organizations that need to provide rides to their constituents. For example, Uber now provides health service which gives rides to patients needing to get scheduled treatments ...

Fucking Canada.
At least you're not in the part of Texas where the forecast was 50" of rain within a few days?
