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.
