Google & Uber Going to War
Google Ventures invested an incredible $258 million in the popular app Uber late August 2013, and even more the year after. Now there are speculations of the two companies going to war rather than being allies.
Uber Might Fire Google’s Legal Officer
The Uber board might conclude to ask Google’s Legal Officer, David Drummond, to resign his position as a Uber board member. To make the competition even harder, Uber has teamed up with Carnegie Mellon University where the goal is to develop its own autonomous vehicle technology like Google’s driverless car project.
Uber Executives are Deeply Concerned
Executives at Uber are, according to Bloomberg, deeply concerned about Google’s new path. Google is probably one of the few companies that you would not want to be in a “war” with, with its deep pockets and astounding team. And one must remember, Uber builds on top of the search giant’s technology like Google Maps.
