Re: Talking of Language

Über is a German word

Shouldn't cause any problems since the company's business model is banned there, isn't it?

In my experience of German taxis, Uber was a solution searching for a problem that didn't exist.

Here in my provincial UK location, the taxi drivers already speak little or no English, don't know the rules of the road, and don't own their vehicles as they operate a car pool where four or more driver use a raddled, dirtty, unroadworthy old shitheap on a near continuous shift basis, so there's certainly a problem waiting for a solution, but Uber seems to be a wrapper with exactly the same contents.

A bit like "Just Eat", which seem to be a wrapper for the very worst food outlets that you'd never voluntarily set foot in..
