This video is hilarious.
Jimmy Kimmel (clearly if you have not heard of him before, he’s a fantastic late night talk show host as well by the way) shows another humorous side of himself as he pretends to be an Uber driver for the day, going out of his way to amuse his fans and (I guess pick up the ladies) as well.
Anyway. Uber – the world’s largest transportation company – is making it increasingly clear that it is planning to take its awesome service way beyond cabs nowadays. Whatever Phase 2 is, it’s here.
It really is hard to overstate how excited the dudes out at Uber are currently are! Aside from what is a great way for the people of San Fran is to get around town, Uber’s traces go wayyy deeper than that. Even if it was just taxis, the company is making over $20m per week.
Think about that! Most companies don’t even make that much in a year. That’s ridiculous. Having all that money and assumptions about your business, can really get to your head, don’t you think?
But Uber has already been playing at delivering services beyond whatever it is they are currently doing, am I right? There is so much they can possibly do to enrage the taxi industry. Seriously. If you’ve been following the tech scene for a while now, you’d know that Uber has done so much to piss everybody off. It’s fantastic.
It’s going to be an interesting couple of years for Uber – I mean it. Any sort of significant expansion they might eventually make, into other markets or other new territories is already swamped and affected. Litigators are on the look out, and any new move they might make is stumped. Holy shit.
Anyway. Hopefully everybody gets out in one piece, and if there are no more businesses to be changed over the next couple of years things will start to slow down and end really quickly.
Phew. Let’s go. In the meantime, I think I’ll just stick to being with limousine companies like the guys over at http://www.rsv.com.au. I trust them a lot better.
