Cab Drivers In Spain Strike Over SmartPhone Application

The Local (Spain´s News In English) reports that Barcelona cab drivers staged a one day strike on July 1, to protest the taxi-booking smart phone application named Uber.

3 Questions That Arise From This Story

1. So your point, cab drivers in Spain, is to draw attention to the new app Uber, by providing them with free advertising and more business opportunities by reducing the supply of cabs throughout the City? (At least we just assumed that was the point when we downloaded the Uber app.)

2. Why is there no umlaut in your name ¨Uber?” Are you to uber-cool to use one, or do you not want prospective customers to worry that they are driving with Mötley Crüe in a reenactment of the “Kickstart My Heart” video? 

3. Isn´t it ironic that cabbies are striking over something related to phones, when so many we ride with are on the phone during the entire ride?
