For those of us without wheels of our own, ridesharing apps like Lyft and Uber can be a lifeline to that big job interview, brand-new microbrewery, or just a night on the town. But now there’s a new kid in town: Sidecar. Could this sleek new app spell trouble for the reigning of kings of the ridesharing industry?
Don’t ask us! Honestly, this really isn’t our kind of thing.
Every week, hundreds upon thousands of would-be taxi riders simply whip out their phones, tap on the Uber button, and, in a matter of minutes, stroll outside to the wide-open doors of a totally on-demand set of wheels: chauffeur included! But this new kid on the block—Sidecar—be a real roadblock on the way to Lyft and Uber’s goals of rideshare industry domination?
Again, we’d love to tell you, but honestly we haven’t the slightest clue. At this point, we can’t see ourselves adding much of anything to this discussion.
Maybe you’d like to check with the guys over at Gizmodo. They’re usually on top of this kind of stuff. In fact, they probably have, like, ten dudes assigned this one topic. Wouldn’t surprise us. After all, they’ve got the word “Gizmo” in their freaking name.
Us? Frankly, we have absolutely nothing useful to say on this front. Sorry.
Even if we did just cook up some content to make ourselves feel like part of this conversation, it’d be a lose-lose. You’d come away from it feeling cheated, and we’d come away from it feeling like a bunch of link-aggregating, click-farming phonies.
So, if you’re looking for concrete, usable info on the whole Uber/Lyft/Sidecar, look elsewhere.
This just isn’t the kind of thing we do. Our bad.
