What is Uber Up To?


Despite recent PR uh-ohs like sabotaging Lyft and the Kalamazoo driver collecting fares between shootings, Uber continues to pulverize competitors. Now, a few recent intriguing moves point to a revolutionary future for the hired driver Leviathan.

First, the company forged a seemingly lopsided partnership with Carnegie Mellon University to legally poach their most skilled and tenured researchers of autonomous robotics. Last week they reportedly purchased 100,000 Mercedes S-Classes – ultra-luxe sedans with renowned self-driving and parking capabilities.

The moves point to a fascinating, if terrifying future: could we be leaving five-stars for an empty car?
