    This business model is MUCH more sustainable than the outsourced subsidized labor business model of postmates/Lyft etc. If the technology is safe and reliable, these companies deserve the big bucks

      Uber says. Our technology is much better than lyft+Uber+crude all together. We have the real data, not simulation ;)

    No. Profitability is a big issue.

      Hmmm...Makes sense. I guess they are more likely to get acquired. Apple has a quarter of a Trillion dollars in cash waiting in their banks. They will probably go shopping soon for their SPG efforts.

    I'm biased but yes, mostly because "ever" is a long time, but likely the majority of them will be public within 5 years.
    Remember that the price of the cars only goes down over time, and the cars only get better at driving, there isn't ready a limit in either direction

    Yes. But it will take 5 to 10 years for that to happen. They will go public so that their owners/investors can monetize the IPO.

    No, they can’t even develop this technology. All those lidars with mapped cities. Meh.
