Uber to Buy 100,000 Cars

Several news outlets are reporting that Uber is placing an order with Mercedes for 100,000 self-driving cars.

That seems unbelievably large, especially with the technology of self-driving cars so uncertain.

The news reports do make the point, however, that one of Uber’s biggest current problems is its drivers. Computer drivers don’t kill passengers, kidnap passengers, or stage protests.
