    They must have dirty photos on every person of influence to be still chugging along. No other explanation makes sense.
    I love how you meant that as a joke...

    It seems like corruption, deceit and incompetence is what any prospective Uber employee needs to put on their CV to get a job at head office.

    Convenience and price VS ethics

    Which will win? Consumerism in a nutshell.

    the man who lost his job over the hack is Joe Sullivan, who was the company’s Chief Security Officer. In October, Bloomberg reported that Sullivan “runs a unit where Uber devised some of the most controversial weapons in its arsenal. Uber’s own board is now looking at Sullivan’s team, with the help of an outside law firm.”

    In fact, it would not be surprising if that probe led to this disclosure.

    From the start of Uber’s troubles, many in tech have tried to isolate the company from the herd. They did not want Uber’s culture to reflect on the tech industry more broadly.

    But Sullivan was not a Kalanick stalwart. He only arrived at Uber in April of 2015. He began his tech career with four years at eBay, went to PayPal for 2.5 years, and then spent over six years at Facebook before being poached by Uber. Bloomberg’s reporting indicates that Sullivan’s role from nearly the moment he arrived at Uber was as “the keeper of some of Uber’s darkest secrets.”

    Some public commentators seem to think Uber’s response to this data breach is abhorrent and unusual. But, then how could a guy so deeply integrated into several major Silicon Valley companies have pushed it forward?

    Doesn’t it make sense to ask what attitudes and procedures Sullivan brought over from Facebook (and eBay and PayPal)?

    I see they are releasing that black cab driver that raped over 100 women today.

    Scary that this overpriced black cab cartel had so much influence that they can accuse uber of being dangerous with a straight face.

    You're completely missing the point.

    Ironically when I read the Guardian article about that there was an advert for Uber part-way through. Awkward.
