Uber was due to shut down on September 29, 2008, but is still up, and the shutdown notice is nowhere to be found, nor is an explanation. The Blog Herald reader Jean Tarbox has heard that ShareNow is saving Uber this time around, funding them for a month so that they can sort out the financial situation. I’ve contacted Uber for a comment but haven’t heard from them yet. More as it develops.
