Voting Day. Whether you are one of those peeps who sees this experience as an utter schlep or not is irrelevant – It’s something we all have to do. Doing it is one thing – getting there is another. Here’s how to get your FREE ride to the voting station. UBER will drive you to Voting Day […]
Do you see what’s happening with the weather today? Take a look. Take one damned good look. It’s gone to hell in a handbasket, and there are only a few decent days left. A dozen real stunners, if we’re lucky. You have to make those guys count – in that spirit we’ve put together this […]
Someone just lost their job. This video illustrates exactly why attempting to drive a one million pound yacht beneath a Thames bridge days after the UK recorded its highest rainfalls in over two centuries is a bad idea. Brace yourself for the 1:08 mark. Maybe it’s better to get around in an Uber luxury sedan. Don’t […]
For those who were too busy to notice, tomorrow is the dreaded Vday. Luckily the good people at Uber have your back this Valentine’s Day with their campaign of love in Cape Town. You stand a chance to have a dozen long stem red roses, a pink promo card, and an optional personalised verbal message delivered by Uber’s drivers to your beloved. This is how.
It seems that Uber car service’s ‘surge pricing’ model has hit Cape Town this season, and some passengers are getting uptight about it. The same thing happened in New York and this is the info we have found:
Calling all party animals! Uber will transport you and your colleagues FOR FREE to and from your office Christmas party. Now you can get as festive as you like, without worrying about the consequences.
That’s right, kids. Not “revolution”. It’s “the Renaissance”, and Uber gets to claim that title because it was the first service to take pretty much every problem associated with catching a cab, and solve it elegantly with software. Check out our insert, below.
Apparently October 29 is National Cat Day in the United States. Not being Americans, it’s understandable that no one here knows, or indeed cares. But still, National Cat Day is worth remarking on because yesterday, Uber hand delivered kittens for people to play with if they lived in New York, San Francisco, or Seattle.
$3.5 billion is a helluva big valuation. So how is it possible that Uber, which has recently arrived in South Africa (JHB + CPT + DBN are all live), is able to come to such a ballsy valuation?
I used Uber for the first time last night. It’s mindblowing. You download the app, store your credit card details (once) and next thing you’re watching the car (black Merc) heading towards you on the map. In a word, it’s ridiculous.
