Deleting Uber, as I believe it's the done thing now
— Andy Budd (@andybudd) November 20, 2014
With all the recent stories about the already dubious (or maybe devious would be more fitting) Uber. Even I am starting to question how much I can really ignore, especially the God mode (yes I was aware via friends but balancing out how much benefit it brought to myself)
Helen Keegan reminds me of what I have been ignoring (I added the links by the way)…
How about throwing their dodgy off-shore tax dealings and encouraging sub-prime loans to drivers for a shiny new car without guaranteeing any work or taking any responsibility? Or maybe the lack of insurance and vetting of drivers? I’m sure there’s a bunch of other things too. And they’re not the only big tech company behaving like this mind.
Shes right, theres a lot of black marks. To be fair it was Mr Sparks which highlighted the attitude as it was being trialled in Manchester. However if you don’t like what Uber is doing, best look at what most of the silicon valley tech companies are doing. Ok so say I wanted to leave because I am sick to the back teeth of what their CEO is doing (I left Godaddy for this reason to be fair) what happens now?
Delete the app fine, but what about the account, data deletion and where next? I have to start again at Hailo? Why can’t I take my reputation with me?
Theres no way to kill the account in the app, so people have asked them to kill the account. Maybe you can trust, Uber will delete the data (haven’t looked at the Eula recently to see their policy around this).
My only hope is Uber upped the game of the other taxi companies out there…
Evil Uber indeed…!
