Default Share your battery charge level and suffer the consequences

You can see my battery is at 18% and the ride (which is normally $25-$30) is hiked up to $81. I saw it change instantly. The price dipped once I charged my phone to 25%.
...
What I learned is that if you're battery level is below 20% Uber and Lyft will purposely hike up the prices because they believe you'll be desperate enough to take it since you're battery levels are low
The data sharing economy is definitely working, just that it isn't working for you, it only works for those you share your data with.
