Re: UBER Over valued is an understatement
I would tend to agree. A " valuation of more than $60 billion has been attached to the privately owned company this year, which would make it even more valuable than carmakers Ford and GM." That may be pretty good evidence of the over inflation of the value of the company. They're going to have to stretch into other areas to avoid a possible down the road devaluation from competition or loss of interest as the novely fades and less interest from drivers in providing the service.

Re: UBER Over valued is an understatement
Uber has a low end fleet management product.  That seems like a more reasonable market to pursue than this notion that consumers are going to tell their vendors about how far away they are.  How is that going to make things better for the consumer (who has to opt-in)?

Re: UBER Over valued is an understatement
The doctor's office example was even more laughable, said anyone who's actually ever been to a doctor's office.

Re: UBER Over valued is an understatement
ha! I was thinking that, too, and I imagine they already book clients in a way that acknowledges most will be late, similar to a doctor's office. I'd like to hear some other applications.

Re: UBER Over valued is an understatement
A hairdresser with a booking system? That's the best example Uber can come up with? Cmon, people -- put some effort into these vertical visions.

UBER Over valued is an understatement
Remember Castlight?   The VC's inflate the valuations so they can get their money back with a fraction of what they sell after IPO and the rest is gravy.  What Uber pays its people does not cover the cost of operating a vehicle.
