When we launched Uber here waaaaaay back in 2012, we never dreamed it would become as ubiquitous as it has. Back then, you tapped an app for an off-duty limo driver. And today, you could get picked up by almost anyone.
In yet another update to this service that we simply can't live without, Uber last week announced the Comfort option, featuring mid-size cars with extra legroom, a way to request your ideal temperature and (wait for it!)....
... the ability to request that you don't have to speak to the driver. Is there anything Uber can't do?
Don't get us wrong, over the years and throughout the world, we've met some pretty interesting drivers and engaged in some really cool conversations. But we love the idea that we can have a little quiet time anywhere.
We're still kicking ourselves for taking cash over stock in Uber all those years ago. But we're doing it quietly in the back of a Comfort ride!
