    Please help!!

    In case you haven't figured it out yet, most of the responses that you have received are satirical. I will give you some real answers......or will I? How can you be sure? <OMINOUS BACKGROUND MUSIC> 1. If you want to know where the hotspots are in Columbus, the general forum is not a very...

    How the restaurants Treat YOU the delivery guy

    Same here. I can't recall a time where I've ever had an issue with the restaurant. There have been times where they clearly were not happy with the platform, but they have never taken it out on me. To the same effect, I very rarely have issues with customers either. Most customers are nice.

    Missing Food Notification

    GrubHub does it, and it works fairly well. All in all, I prefer the Uber app to the GrubHub app, but this is one instance where the GrubHub app is superior.

    New and improved boosts!!

    ....when they feel like it. A couple months ago, I did a pickup at a White Castle. Customer ordered fried pickles, but they were out of pickles. So I called Rohit. Rohit cancelled the order and paid me $3 for showing up at the restaurant and then she says, "...and because you are one of our...

    Deepfake evidence so realistic 'innocent people will go to jail'

    It is a slippery slope. Photos are easier than video or audio, but it still raises ethical questions. http://www.msn.com/en-us/news/crime/witnesses-said-a-bank-robber-didnt-have-facial-tattoos-so-police-digitally-altered-a-suspects-mugshot/ar-AAG0XlJ?li=BBnb7Kz&ocid=iehp

    Scooter Thefts Shut Down Grin Rental Service

    My dad refuses to get a passport until after he retires just so that he can't get sent to Mexico for his job.

    Cheapest Delivery Fee?

    This is smoke and mirrors. Uber changed their delivery fee structure a while back. Instead of just charging customers a flat delivery fee based on the restaurant and how far away it is, they now break the fees that are charged to the customer down into several fees: a delivery fee, a service...

    Uber Posts $5.2 Billion Loss and Slowest Ever Growth Rate

    In their IPO filing, they flat out said that they do not see a path to profitability in the foreseeable future. Any investors that bought Uber stock expecting them to turn things around and immediately start making a profit are idiots. The question isn't whether or not Uber will lose money...

    This California city just voted to give a $30 minimum wage to Uber and Lyft drivers

    The El Monte city council has no jurisdiction over anything that happens outside of El Monte. They can only dictate what Uber must pay when they are operating within the city limits. Outside the city limits, they have no jurisdiction. So if an El Monte resident left the city limits and drove...

    Uber eat speed warning

    Does Uber make exceptions for the relatives of amazing trumpeters? I don't remember seeing that in the TOS.

    Uber Posts $5.2 Billion Loss and Slowest Ever Growth Rate

    Of course they had more cash on hand at the end of Q2 than they did at the end of last year. What happened between the end of last year and the end of Q2? Uber had an IPO. The entire point of the IPO was to bring in cash. It would take an extraordinarily unique kind of incompetence to not...

    Investors who dumped Uber stock last week are idiots: Here's what's really going on.

    They can't even get their own story straight. They just said (two sentences prior) that Uber lost $1.6 billion (after adjusting the total net loss for noncash expenditures), and then they turn around and say that the company isn't losing money. I'll buy that the $5.3 billion number is an...
