What is Happening at UBER at this Very Moment?

What is Happening at UBER at this Very Moment?

Well if you thought Uber had devel­oped a lot of ene­mies in the taxi busi­ness before by bring­ing a new lev­el of com­pe­ti­tion to the some­what monop­o­lized indus­try, you can bet that those ene­mies will be even more incensed with the com­pa­ny’s lat­est move — and per­haps iron­i­cal­ly, bring the very dri­vers that they gave a new lease on work­ing into the ene­my fold. In the last week Uber has unveiled their fleet of self-dri­v­ing cars in the test mar­ket of Pitts­burgh, PA. But before you pull out your smart­phone to jump into the future, you should know that not every­one in the area will nec­es­sar­i­ly get one of these autonomous vehi­cles when they call for a ride. And those who do will be joined by an Uber dri­ver sit­ting behind the wheel just in case and anoth­er in the pas­sen­ger seat tak­ing notes. A hand­ful of Ford Fusions make up the small group of self-dri­v­ing Uber cars in the city, but there will soon be Vol­vo XC90 SUVs join­ing the fray, once they’ve com­plet­ed test­ing in Swe­den. And if you hap­pen to be one of those chomp­ing at the bit for a ride in one because you think it will…

Is the Operator App a Media Game Changer?

Have you heard of the Oper­a­tor App? In the old days, we con­sumers would go through the ardu­ous and time con­sum­ing process of get­ting dressed, get­ting in our vehi­cles, and actu­al­ly phys­i­cal­ly dri­ving to a store — or sev­er­al stores — to buy some­thing. Then we had to park, walk in, find the right depart­ment, and then find the right prod­uct. And if the store we were in did­n’t have the option we want­ed, it was back out to he car and on to the next store to find it. Sounds exhaust­ing, right? Then came the con­sumer’s sav­ior — the inter­net, along with Ama­zon and oth­er online retail­ers. Now we can stay in our PJs, save our gas mon­ey, and browse through mul­ti­ple online stores in less time than it used to take us to get to the first store. But there’s a sac­ri­fice involved, name­ly get­ting help. Sure, there are chat box­es, arti­fi­cial intel­li­gence chat­bots,  and reviews, but the first is lit­tle more than a call cen­ter employ­ee with lit­tle prod­uct knowl­edge, chat­bots are just as lim­it­ed with even less per­son­al­i­ty, and the lat­ter prob­a­bly involves many peo­ple paid to post pos­i­tive reviews and oth­er hired to den­i­grate a com­pa­ny…
