▷I used the service many times when I travel.
This experience was always good. First, there is a kitchen,
refrigerator, shelf and other necessity. On the other hand,
hotels don’t have such a stuff in many cases because the purpose is
just make travelers stay. But accommodations in Airbnb are
“House”. It means, people lived the house or room but now,
they don’t need them so they rent. Therefore, the amenity and
utility are just as they lived so there are such a useful stuff.
Travelers can cook in the hotel in a sense.

Uber is a mobile application that allows subscribers
to get a car service from their smart phones. Users
can request a car by telling the company a location,
via texting an address or using iPhone or Android apps
to set a pickup location on a map. Uber will send the
nearest driver for pick up, and text message an estimated
arrival time. When the ride is over, Uber will automatically
charge the users' credit card on file. Uber takes GPS data
from the ride and charges for distance or time depending on
speed. Any tolls and surcharges incurred during a ride are then
added on top of this calculated fare, as well as a base fare.
▷I am using this App almost everyday.
That’s so useful because all we have to do is
choosing destination and place where
we are waiting. Then, drivers come and pick us up.
I can’t live in SF and Bay area without this App.
