There is a BIG point/word either obviously (or purposely) missed - alternative [to traditional leasing]. No one is going to beat the work combined with knowledge of Hackers on a lease. The use of an app made to simplify things will never compete with the aforementioned human attributes. However, although old, a deal like this, with no negotiation, is worth it to me.
If it is not useful, it will go away. But it should not be discounted altogether. It is not nearly as bad as some are suddenly making it out to be.
