Uber Banned in Italy

Things have been really tough for Uber recently. Well, as tough as things can be for a multi-multi-billion dollar company, especially when so much of what has been wrought against them has been self-inflicted. Nonetheless, their first total ban in Europe is a big deal.

While it remains to be seen if the ruling laid by the Italian judge last Friday will last, or if, like other European countries, some of Uber's more elite services will be reinstated, for now, you won't be able to catch a ride from a crazy Uber driver across Rome. You'll have to stick with the crazy taxi drivers.
