Take a good look at that picture and get used to seeing that ominous flying device, because it’s going to be the delivery man you tip at Christmas next year. TechCrunch is reporting that we are inching ever-closer to the end of days through–well, various means–but it seems that Skynet might in fact be a real possibility and will be coming for us after all. Uber announced it will start using drones for deliveries. When these AI programs become sentient (if they aren’t already…) we are all toast.
We all know that Martha Stewart has exceedingly high standards. This past weekend those standards were put to the test when she decided to try Uber for the first time. While some of us are terrified of getting a chatty and/or rapey driver, Martha is in the unenviable position of having standards of cleanliness and efficiency that need to be met. Unfortunately, even though she ordered “the most expensive version,” Martha’s Uber experience was not up to snuff and poor Martha was positively scandalized. And so close to the holidays!
Uber hasn’t had a great April when it comes to famous-ish passengers. Last week, Busy Philipps claimed her life was at risk after she climbed into an Uber driven by a creepy guy with an even creepier guy in the backseat. Now plus-size model Tess Holliday is claiming a recent Uber ride put her her self esteem at risk, thanks to a body-shaming Uber driver.
Early Sunday morning, Busy Phillips (Kim Kelly from Freaks and Geeks) got into an Uber with her husband Marc Silverstein. That’s not the news here. Although it is a little surprising to learn that someone with Cougar Town money doesn’t get chauffeured around town in a stretch limo in a series of underground tunnels built specifically for the rich and famous. Anyway, Busy’s Uber ride was dramatic for her and she relayed the whole situation in a series of Instagram stories.
