Starting today, Uber Eats, Uber’s on-demand food delivery service, will begin piloting its new “Pickup” service in Toronto. The feature, allowing customers to “skip the line” when ordering food, is very similar to Toronto-based Ritual‘s offering.
Although Ritual has released a series of other services, its baseline offering is almost indistinguishable from that of Uber Eats’ Pickup.
Uber’s product function allows customers to place orders right through the app and receive notifications when their food is ready for pickup. Toronto restaurants like Magic Noodle, The Halal Guys, Basil Box, Sweet Jesus, Burrito Boys, and Bombay Roti are some of the restaurants signed onto the pilot. Uber said the pickup feature will benefit the restaurant partner, through reduced service fees, increased awareness through the platform, and deeper analytics about customers.
“With over 600 Toronto restaurants participating in the Pickup pilot, grabbing takeout from your favourite spots in Toronto is abou..
Microsoft appears to be working with developer Epic Games on a Fortnite-themed Xbox One S console.
An image leaked by German outlet Winfuture points to the existence of an Xbox One S console sporting a black-to-purple gradient.
Brad Sams of Microsoft outlet Thurott first teased the console on Twitter and Windows Central is now corroborating the veracity of Winfuture‘s image.
The console is particularly noteworthy because there hasn’t yet been a purple Xbox One S. Most of the Xbox One S bundles — including the existing Fortnite one — are white. Meanwhile, older models of the Xbox One, as well as the 4K-capable Xbox One X, are typically offered in black.
Outside of the special colour scheme, the new Fortnite bundle appears to be a standard console (rather than the recently released digital-only Xbox One S) that includes some bonus content for the game.
It’s unclear how much the bundle will cost or when it may be released. However, Microsoft has its major annual Xbox briefing at the Elect..
