    Howard spent time today supporting Uber in NYC, he said Beth was a big fan and used it all the time. Are we really supposed to believe that Beth gets rides from random Uber drivers in the city. I'd imagine the spontaneous erection they'd get on seeing her would cause them to drive off the road. There's got to be marbles involved.

    Marksfriggin:

    Howard said that he's not happy with what the Mayor is doing there in the city. He said they want to limit Uber. He said he doesn't use it but Beth does. Howard said he thinks the service is good. Howard said that he's all for the free market. Howard said people should get the opportunity to do that. Robin said the medallions in the city are worth a lot of money. Robin said the owner makes the money and the poor cab drivers aren't. She said they're the ones complaining. Robin said that Uber is buying ads to fight for their right to do what they do. Howard said they say that one guy who owns cabs paid the mayor off to do this. Howard said Uber is a good thing. Howard said it's suspicious that after this guy gives a million to his campaign that he wants to get rid of it.

    Why doesn't Beth just call one of her friends to give her a ride?

    Yes, and what do you think Howards sudden Uber rant was all about?

    He's the king of making a paid commercial sound like a spontaneous rant.

    There's no way in heaven that Beth is using Uber.

    Not a chance.

    Totally sounds like a commercial. Not a surprise. I notice that a lot of Uber mentions have been crowbarred into "Ray Donovan" as well

    I wonder how much Uber is paying the closeted homo and whether that's ok per terms of the Sirus contract since Sirus is not seeing a penny from this paid plug...

    Or Howard was involved in the private capital funding for the company through one of his investment managers, he's could be waiting for a big payday when they do their IPO?

    I doubt it..Howard is so tight and risk adverse with his money that he would not invest any any new stock, or fund for that matter, a new company strictly based on an idea alone. remember He could have been a billionaire and took a similar stock funding deal that John Malone took when Sirus was on the verge of bankruptcy a few years back. But the cheapass wanted the company to honor his contract and he wanted to get paid even if they were broke.

    Uber is not as good as a limo, but it is better than a smelly cab.

    Nah, NY requires Uber drivers to have commercial drivers licenses.
