Who loves the “next big thing?” I’m so tired of hearing about mobile, cloud, big data.

Uber launched its first car service five years ago with a few cars in San Francisco. Today it has a valuation of $41.2 billion. Let me pause a moment for that to sink in.

It’s not a typo – that’s billions of dollars. For a point of comparison, that’s higher than Delta Airlines,, or Kraft Foods. The combined market cap of the three largest global staffing companies—Adecco, Randstad, and Manpower—is $25 billion.

Now another critical point: Uber’s total addressable market for car services is $11B. If car service domination is their ultimate objective, the math doesn’t work. So what’s going on?
