I think the sensible conclusion here is that the two companies have such different business models and goals that it doesn't make much sense to compare them at all.

Precisely my point. Advertising is a high margin industry with poorly understood issues.

Logistics is a low margin winner-takes-all industry which is fairly well understood.

Famously why we only have a single parcel delivery company, trucking company and warehouse provider.

Love to see your working on how logistics is winner takes all.

Agreed, though I don't think any rideshare company currently is poised to be the winner of their markets, or at least the profitable ones.

this was the smartest thing put in simplest terms on this thread.
