Beyoncé Is Going To Make So Much Money From Uber

Beyoncé Is Going To Make So Much Money From Uber We all know Beyoncé is brilliant, but this move she made in 2015 may be the absolute ultimate in future planning. Four years ago, Beyoncé was offered $6 (£4.65) million to perform for a corporate Uber event in Las Vegas. Instead of cold hard cash, Queen Bey asked for payment in equity — and now that $6 million has turned into as much as $300 (£232.4) million. That is A LOT of money. In case you missed it, Uber went public on the New York Stock Exchange last Friday. With an $8.1 (£6.2) billion IPO (Initial Public Offering), the shares initially went for $45 (£34.86) each — marking one of the biggest tech IPOs in recent history.

Uber could give you the option to ‘favorite’ drivers

Uber might be developing a feature that lets riders add drivers as a "favorite" so they can ride with them again in the future.

App researcher Jane Manchun Wong revealed the potential app addition on Monday, noting that Uber was apparently testing the feature -- no other details have been given so far.

This would be a big change for the app -- and indeed Uber overall.

Uber could give you the option to ‘favorite’ drivers

On one hand, this kind of feature could pose a privacy risk for drivers, but if well implemented, could help bolster a sense of confidence and security among riders.

Almost everyone who uses the service has a tale to tell about a past Uber driver, so if there's no way of straight-up avoiding particular individuals, this function will at least make sure you get a driver you're comfortable with.
