    I'm gonna install both, but I wanted to get people opinions on either, if you've used them, or know someone who has.

    There are times I sit, in or around cities. Maybe I might want to go somewhere & I need a ride to do it.

    Thought one or the other might be useful

    A friend has used Uber a couple of times. Said it was just fine.
    I haven't tried it yet though.

    People don't like you either.

    If Semi is delivering a load of cars, maybe they wouldn't mind if he took one off the truck once and a while.

    That would be called Hytch. Trucking companies could make extra money off that

    A friend and I used Uber recently. This anti smart phone cat had the app on his phone. Kid was a few miles away and it was $16 to go 6 miles. I left our keys in his car 6 miles upstream after a rafting trip. After my original gambit (riding in the back of a truck piloted by a stoned lady and her 70 something mother proved fruitless) he called the Uber and it got us home. Thanks Uber!! A carless friend in Seattle uses it regularly and she's still alive.

    This lady drove past the park spot twice. And she claimed to have been from the area. She had a pipe and had been smoking, her mom looked as if she started smoking cigarettes at the tender age of about 6.

    $35m for 4 yards worth of startup capital? I'm starting something that's going to fail, then retire in style.

    I finally Ubered a few times over the summer to avoid worrying about the car keys when I went out to tip a few.

    It was pretty decent. I'll do it again.

    Had my first Uber ride last week, went pretty well. I have to be downtown in a few weeks and I'll probably take Uber down there since parking usually sucks!
