also the 3g version officially costs 329, once again your seeing a 3rd party price. though you would be better off with a hots pot as it is not LTE.

also the price isn't increased by amazon due to limited supply. amazon is sold out, the price you're seeing is a 3rd party listing using FBA

 @Dan_Tamkin  @KristaCaldwell The employment status is absolutely important. It is the difference between a FedEX driver running an on the side delivery service from his truck (illegal), vs a subway franchise choosing to use seamless (legal).

 

More importantly though, if we accept that drivers working for a fleet don't have the right to get rides through other dispatch services, (which as I mentioned above is a market by market question), than we also have to realize that it would be the driver committing the crime, not the alternative dispatch service.

 @KristaCaldwell  @eduardoC I was referring to the point you made about people being confused when a Black Taxi shows up. People aren't confused when they get on American Airlines and not an Expedia Charter. They are not confused that GrubHub doesn't deliver the Chinese food.

But you brought up an interesting point about a fleets control of their drivers. Are drivers salaried employees or independent contractors. If they were salaried employees, akin to airline pilots your argument makes sense, in that the pilot cannot strike deals with travel agencies to sell tickets on his plane.

But if a driver is an independent contractor that is whole other story.

Or maybe we should view him akin to a franchise owner and a whole new set of rights come into play.

Ultimately the question leads to what are the legal rights of drivers in determining how they pick up passengers and what rights do the fleets have in limiting them from doing so. This varies from market to market and thus a blanket argument doesn't really hold water.

the same argument can be made for objecting to travelocity.

Nathaniel Motts article made sense. this is just a diatribe based on a false premise. all of ubers drivers are licensed taxi drivers. the yellow taxi drivers have tlc licenses and medallions. the black car drivers have taxi licenses and plates. I think your confusing uber with lyft/sidecar

@TravisKalanick @ianbetteridge @nathanielmott @RedRookDigital @fred_ox Are you saying that the TLC had no issues at the beginning with you charging a mandatory 20 percent gratuity?
