PayPal to invest $500 million in Uber cnbc.com A financial services component is important to Uber as it works to expand into a “superapp” of logistics and transportation services.
Superapps are applications where customers go for a range of services, such as transportation, shopping and payments. Such companies can be much more lucrative than those that offer just one core business or service.
yeah it was short lived. My guess is a developer messed up and it took them about 30 - 40 minutes to correct the problem.
The issue is, if one has a big public market and with hacking so rampant, one should test software before going live in production.
What caught my attention was when I went to login, it wasn't what I expected to see. Which made me then go back and examine all sorts of stuff to make sure I wasn't about to lose my user/password to a hacker.
Once I figured out the mistake was just making mexico the default connection page I realized Paypal was the one with the problem. Not a hacker per se or so i thought.
