@jamesshelley I am checking in with you as I have enjoyed your writing in the past. Your website now seems in some bit of disrepair. I hope you are still out there and doing well.

Uber’s Path of Destruction – American Affairs Journal

Uber’s Path of Destruction – American Affairs Journal:

Since it began operations in 2010, Uber has grown to the point where it now collects over $45 billion in gross passenger revenue, and it has seized a major share of the urban car service market. But the widespread belief that it is a highly innovative and successful company has no basis in economic reality.

An examination of Uber’s economics suggests that it has no hope of ever earning sustainable urban car service profits in competitive markets. Its costs are simply much higher than the market is willing to pay, as its nine years of massive losses indicate.

Enjoy the Uber ride while it lasts because at this rate the service won’t be around in the future. Ultimately, the tune will stop playing on this game of musical chairs.

I think I might try ditching Fantastical in favour of the stock calendar app on iOS. I’m fed up with Fantastical not supporting travel time, and by using Drafts I should still be able to add events using natural language.

I’m having to upgrade to the 2Tb iCloud tier for our family. My wife takes too many photos!

Ctrl-Cmd-G has to be about the best feature in the new version 3 of DEVONthink. It’s the equivalent of Cmd-O in OmniFocus.
