    Previously it was known that Uber was facing three criminal probes in the U.S., Bloombergreports. The probes are exploring the company’s use of potentially illicit software and bribing overseas officials in Malaysia. But now, Bloomberg says they’ve learned that the company is facing two additional criminal probes:

    Bloomberg has learned that authorities are asking questions about whether Uber violated price-transparency laws, and officials are separately looking into the company’s role in the alleged theft of schematics and other documents outlining Alphabet Inc.’s autonomous-driving technology.

    And that’s not considering all the civil lawsuits proceeding against the company. It looks like Uber’s CEO Dara Khosrowshahi has a long road in front of him.MG

    I wonder if the dual, upfront fare pricing scheme will fall under criminal or civil action. There was no mention of dual accounting when I signed up.

    Why do I have the feeling that I'm onboard RMS Titanic and we've just stuck the iceberg?

    I wonder what their profits margin will be this year, heh.

    If I know d0nd0n better, getting deactivated from uber is going to set him on a crusade to release a bomb during the most profitable season, the only question is Halloween or new years?

    At least you own your own life boat and can drive away, unless you lease your life boat through xchange or hertz, then you will die

    It's not as bad as it seems. Just think of Lyft as the Carpathia and it's only 1 download away instead of 4 hours. All the pax and the entire crew will be saved however a captain always goes down with the ship.

    If I charged people prices on what o think that particular person would pay, I would be on jail already not to mention labeled a racist etc etc because you know uber is charging less in some hoods and more on others and that is racism and reverse racism

    Now that's funny. lol

    I have a hunch that the 1 percenters of the world that have been swindled by the pile of dung we know as Travis, have a more gruesome end planned for him than a mere indicting
