Salman Rushdie Had a Few Complaints About Uber Today
The subject of the Booker Prize winner's fury: taxi-on-demand mobile app Uber. Popular with travelers and, well, anyone looking for an easy way to find a ride and not have to worry about paying for it on the spot, Rushdie didn't care for its rush-hour pricing scheme this morning in New York City.
Dear @Uber_NYC, your cynical rip-off "surge pricing" (i.e. doubling the price because you feel like it) is making you... not worth using.- Salman Rushdie (@SalmanRushdie) November 13, 2013
