Wiser has created a free Uber news email digest that scours the best publishers on the web to provide a single daily update with the 10 latest Uber-related articles. As the “Uber-fication” of the mobile economy continues, investors, technologists, taxi industry stakeholders, elected officials, consumers and others are carefully watching what Uber does next. Originally founded in San Francisco in 2009 by Travis Kalanick, Uber has expanded rapidly over the past couple years. As of September 2014, Uber’s vehicle-for-hire service was available in 45 countries and more than 100 major cities around the world. While Uber originally launched its serviced with only full-size luxury cars in its fleet, in 2012 it released a less expensive alternative called UberX that used smaller vehicles. UberX’s inexpensive ridesharing program has driven the cost of transportation down, but also pitted Uber against traditional taxi companies and services.
