    Pros: 

    Good idea

    Cons: 

    Rabbits reply very slowly, you're FORCED to specify a time, and you can't put up a task and see who's available

    Say you need an errand done, like picking up a package from somewhere and dropping it off somewhere else, sometime this week. This is surprisingly hard to do on TaskRabbit: 1. You can't put up your task and get offers. You must first select a Rabbit and wait for them to reply. 2. Rabbits have *never* replied to me. The system has told me, 8 times so far, that "The selected Rabbit is not available, please pick someone else". Why don't you just broadcast my task and see who's available? 3. You're forced to pick a time, which I guess is the reason why many Rabbits weren't available. Thing is, I don't care. I just want the task done between Monday and Friday.

will be interesting to see how users respond. from the VB article: "Although the shift is monumental for the company, TaskRabbit is confident its existing community will embrace it. It appears that TaskRabbit users quite liked the results of the previous service — it grew by 1.5 million new users over the past year — but hated the bidding system." Also, Founder @labusque anticipates what everyone's thinking: “In no way did Uber inspire this product change”
