Uber’s Secret Tool for Keeping the Cops in the Dark

quote [ At least two dozen times, the San Francisco headquarters locked down equipment in foreign offices to shield files from police raids.

they’d been trained to page a number that alerted specially trained staff at company headquarters in San Francisco. When the call came in, staffers quickly remotely logged off every computer in the Montreal office, making it practically impossible for the authorities to retrieve the company records they’d obtained a warrant to collect. The investigators left without any evidence. ]

Diabolically effective response to the fact that uber's business model invites police raids.

In many cities, conventional taxi drivers are the epitome of the working poor, eschewing social assistance, and working 12 and 14 hour shifts. Allowing Uber to do an end run around local regulation, as many cities have done to one degree or another, has created in a grossly unfair playing field, were conventional cab drivers are finding it hard to maintain their already meagre livelihoods. Screwing over these workers, so that a scaly tech company can thrive, is beneath contempt.

Fuck Uber. Take a cab.

Fuck Uber. If you have the option, take a cab.
