Uber’s unrelenting desire to be everything

Posted by on Jun 15, 2018 in CTRL+T, Podcasts, Scooters, TC, Transportation, Uber | 0 comments

Welcome back to CTRL+T, the TechCrunch podcast where Megan Rose Dickey and I talk about stories from the week that we either found interesting or hated and had more to say about.
