Then a second, careful, inspection found clues like "Irish Sea". Happy trails!
What would they rather do?
Fact is, there is more demand than supply for rides.
I've spent my fair share of frustrated evenings in San Francisco on NYE (pre Uber) trying to hail a cab. Walking to the end of the block thinking there's a better chance! Just to see someone else got now picked up the same spot I just left! Walking miles with a girl in heels who now has bloody blisters, and is seriously contemplating to take her shoes off and walk rather barefoot through SF sidewalks where broken glass is the least of your worries to step into.
Man would I have paid whatever it takes to get her in a car and pick our sorry (cold and often wet) asses up wherever we just were.
So, if you don't like Uber, take a cab. And thank everyone who takes a Uber instead of being in front of you at the cab line.
And if you TRULY believe that Uber is unfairly gauging prices and rolls in the dough... Hey, you can always drive for Uber instead of partying, and make a fortune that night.
I completely get limiting the number of authorized devices. But to disallow the throwing on the compost heap of old systems, that's... dumb and not very customer friendly.
Some things, however, are somewhat important: the iPad's stylus/Pencil implementation is vastly superior. I liked writing on the Surface, I love it on the iPad. And, and this is a big one, the iPad charges via USB. No more bulky chargers, on-the-go recharges from an external battery, that's worth a lot if you're traveling with it.
I've managed to get most things that matter to me on the iPad. It still doesn't run my dev environment (which the Surface does admirably) and I am limited to iMovie and Adobe Clips for video, but for any trip outside the ones where those things are important, the iPad might become an equal opportunity companion.
