ICYMI: Best of the Week
Hello, Monday, we meet again. As you trudge into a new work week, we’ve got you covered with stories you might have missed last week.

Uber is a great way to get from point A to point B, but the company may have a rocky road ahead of it in 2015. There are a lot of lawsuits pending against the ridesharing company, and while none of them seem that damaging, it does raise a question: why is Uber so prone to lawsuits? Read full article here.
