Uber, the on-demand ‘driver for hire’ mobile service (ODMS) has become the poster-child for digital disruption and ‘convenience tech’.

Uber, bank rolled by Google, is disrupting (destroying) traditional taxi services by delivering more ‘value’ (mostly convenience value) to ‘value-maximising’ consumers through a smart mix of ‘regulatory hacking’ and technology.
