Uber Shuts Down App That Told Drivers If Uber Underpaid Them https://www.vice.com/en/article/wx8yvm/uber-shuts-down-app-that-lets-users-know-how-badly-theyve-been-cheated
@info_activism Remember when life was complicated and a driver would have an independently checked taximeter in their car, that would just count a price during the ride plus a waiting fee?
Good we opted to go for pre-calculated fees by computer now, that also decides that it's the drivers fault, when reality doesn't align with the computer simulation. And how great that it can also oversee every customer who goes anywhere before or after a ride. That sure is no problem. Surely not.
