The last of those options looks more likely after third-quarter operating profit fell by nearly two thirds. ...

Uber says it has discliplined its manager accused of tracking a journalistUber says it's completed an investigation into one of its managers, who earlier this month was accused of improperly using the transportation company's tools to track the travels of a journalist. Slate reports that the company has taken "disciplinary actions" against Josh Mohrer, general manager of Uber New York, though it's currently unclear just what that means. According to a recent report in Buzzfeed News, Mohrer used the tool to track the whereabouts of Buzzfeed reporter Johana Bhuiyan while she was on her way to a meeting at Uber's Long Island City headquarters. Under the Uber's own privacy guidelines, that tool was explicitly limited in use to "legitimate business purposes," prompting questions into how many people at the company had access to it.
