what is uber and why is everyone talking about it?

What is UBER?

For riders UBER is pretty much a phone app where you can request a private driver. But The prices are super low so the taxi companys can not compete and car requirements are super high so you get a better car. However UBER is always extending its reach. UBER is also now delivering food, goods and even has decided to compete with city buses by introducing UBER Pool. I see no end for the company and its going to keep growing even more rapidly. UBER to me, is like the google of the real world. They realized our every day lives are revolved around cars and they are making eventhing we do with a car more simple.

However for drivers its not so much future proof. Right now UBER has already put out reports that they are testing self driving cars and plan on replacing there drivers. While this is somthing they seem pretty focused on, I dont honestly see this being a full rollout anytime soon. There is still plenty of time for drivers to work and I think this will continue to be a trend for atleast another 10 years.
