  1. That's the thing uber as much as I want to hate it is actually great cars a few minutes away see where they are on the app the price no exchange of money, but whilst I'm a sociable person and can happily talk shit with someone for hours i think driverless cars would be amazing No small talk and peaceful just get it takes me to where I want to go whilst again I want to hate it I actually think I would use it more
  2. Read a thing about Audi testing car share scheme video seems to show the rough idea driverless cabs will be huge if it works if you only need a car a few times a week

    Car insurance

    Rather than starting a new thread I just add it here Just got a renewal quote for a 10-year-old pickup truck that never really gets used much as I work from home my insurance was £350 ish But moved in with a partner to save money saving around £1000 a month but being a shit area within south London the renewal is £1058 even checking a few comparison websites best so far is £970 that's with 9 years no claims, So postcode plays a huge role when i switch to my mums address 10 minutes down the road but not on a council estate it drops to £420 Problem is it needs a new clutch too that's going be around £500, The joy of owning a car

    Crowdfunding Seedrs

    Been browsing around this site for a few days and wondered if anyone has invested in this kinda thing before or considering it I thought this one was quite interesting apparently been laying some roads near Durham wonder if @DurhamBorn has seen these In 2013, E-Car Club raised £100,000 from 63 investors on Crowdcube, with a valuation of £500,000. Investors put in an average of £1,500, with the largest investment £15,000, and were reported to receive a return on their investment of three to four times. A significantly larger success story was Camden Town Brewery, which raised £2.75 million in April 2015 thanks to 2,173 Crowdcube investors and was acquired by Anheuser-Busch InBev in December the same year for a rumoured £85 million. However, the promising stats and tales of successful deals shouldn’t cloud the fact that, as ever, investment in early-stage companies carries a significant degree of risk. Failures include soap company Bubble & Balm, one of the first companies to raise money via crowdfunding in the UK, which raised a total of £75,000 on Crowdcube in exchange for 15 per cent equity but went bust in 2013 as the first high-profile crowdfunding casualty. More recently, claims management business Rebus folded in 2016 after raising over £800,000, again on Crowdcube. The company was accused of ‘misleading investors’ with its pitch, as investors were reportedly not told that the company had previously hired restructuring experts due to struggles with cash flow.
