    So you can only buy things while inside of an Uber and it takes 5 days to arrive? What the fuck kind of problem is this a solution for?

      We’re as baffled as you are. I think the questions should be directed more at Cargo than Uber.

      I imagine Uber just signed onto this because Cargo is paying them but still major wtf

    • @wBND06 I think some Uber-ites built this for the same reasons Googlers build chat apps.

    Dara and his shit ideas. I'm convinced Uber 2.0 is doomed

    Bring back TK and 1.0. It was rough but at least Uber had a future

    You know how we have internal fragmentation and external fragmentation when dealing with memory issues? Yeah, this feels like the internal fragmentation issue of our business. Nobody cares about shopping while riding. This is not going to get more people to use the service lol

    Dara and BD team shame on you for signing this deal. Nobody would wait 2-5 days for a charger you must know that and yet you gave worldwide exclusive rights? To a company where former Uber SVP Emil Michael is an Series-A investor?

    Oh so it’s like amazon, but slower, and I can only use it while I’m in an Uber?

    Cool. How do I sign up?
