or...?
I have heard people refer to uniform circular motion - and that would vertainly not be uniform velocity.

When we are speaking about uniform velocity ,it means that both magnitude and direction of the velocity VECTOR must be uniform with time . But when we say uniform motion , we usually refer to the magnitude alone , irrespective of the direction . So , Uniform motion need not have uniform velocity always.
