2. They could, but I imagine they'd go out of business pretty quickly.

Because rates would skyrocket and nobody would use them.

3. It would simply accelerate

the pace at which the self-driving car would be adopted by both companies.

7. I doubt it.

After all before those two we had buses and other cab services and yet we still don't have self-driving cars for a very good reason.
First is the need to develop the tech then there's the need to make sure the tech can't be hacked and turn the self-driving vehicles into weapons.

5. The way you smear Uber drivers reminds me of this meme.



If you google 'taxi driver rapist' and 'uber driver rapist' (or 'murderer') you'll see the same kinds of horror stories.
It's not germane to the profitability of the company, nor the wage issues facing Uber drivers.

It's basically like holding addicts over a barrel, because someone else is paying a lot for insulin. It doesn't make sense. They are unrelated.

8. Sounds fair if you hear the explanation

Getting driven around for an hour for 30$ seems very cheap.
