Telling It Like It Is... Yearning for the good old days

I remember hearing my Granny Stapp say "We're living in a different world now" many times and that simple phrase is truer now more than ever.

Harrop: 'Bro Culture' companies may do poorly by being bad

What exactly does Uber have to offer that other companies do not? The ride-hailing service doesn't own its cars or employ drivers. It's basically a smartphone app that connects passengers to drivers using their own vehicles. Rival apps now do much the same thing.
