Apple exec: Uber ‘would not exist’ without us
#Apple is starting to make more noise about the power of its App Store as it begins to rely on its services business more heavily for revenue growth. Eddy Cue, Apple’s head of internet services, even tried to take credit for #Uber in an recent interview. “I think it’s awesome that Travis and his team have done Uber on our platform. It would not exist without our platform, let’s be clear,” he told Fast Company. While Apple only became an indirect investor in Uber earlier this month, and the Uber app works fine on Android phones, you can kind of see Cue’s point.
