    Let me guess what will be in the first issue
    --> being Uber means there is no need to tip your driver
    ---> how to avoid paying surge pricing
    ----> is your Uber driver marketing other products or speaking against saint kalanic? Call 1-800-SNITCH now!

    I can totally see Uber shoving this magazine on to (erm) independent contractors' cars.

    New lower rates and higher commmsions.. uber says you will make more money.

    No wonder they have troubles keeping a cfo. They are using government math.

    I got an idea, maybe uber will send us each 50 copies and then we can sell them to our riders. That will help us make more money then we're making now.

    No. Send Uber drivers 50 copies each (printed w/"first edition"); the drivers ad a tag of $1 to each one. Walla! $50 in the drivers' pockets.

    Type up an official-looking card and insert the "blow-in" in the book. Blow-ins are the subscription cards that fall out of magazines for those not in the know (like I was until 3 minutes ago.)
