Uber adds a cheaper ride option. It's The Daily Crunch.

THE DAILY CRUNCH
WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 21 2018 By Anthony Ha

Uber rolls out a new type of ride, AT&T announces 5G plans and Google launches automated ad placement. All that and more in The Daily Crunch for February 21, 2018.

1. Uber officially launches Uber Express POOL, a new twist on shared rides

Uber Express POOL is the company's latest experiment in optimizing shared rides. Express POOL will be the cheapest option, but you might have to wait a few extra minutes for a trip to start, walk a few blocks to a nearby pickup spot and/or walk a few blocks to your destination after you get dropped off.

Uber started testing the plan in San Francisco last fall.

2. AT&T names Atlanta, Dallas and Waco first of 12 US cities to get 5G wireless

The plan is to launch in a dozen cities by the end of the year, but the remaining cities will be announced at a later date.

3. 3D printing marketplace Shapeways names a new CEO

The company has been searching for a new chief executive for months to replace co-founder Peter Weijmarshausen, who stepped down in August.

4. This bizarre reality special from Netflix tries to get people to commit 'murder'

Don't do it, Chris!

5. Moovit raises another $50M led by Intel for its urban transit app, plans Mobileye collaboration

To date, Moovit has raised around $131 million in funding. When it raised its last round in 2015, it was valued at $450 million.

6. Google debuts AdSense 'auto ads' with machine learning to make placement and monetization choices

These aren't car commercials, but rather a new ad unit that uses machine learning to "read" a page to detect where ads might be appropriate and place them accordingly.

7. Adecco Group acquires recruiting startup Vettery for $100M

On Vettery, job candidates browse offers, schedule interviews with the employers that interest them and receive a signing bonus from Vettery when they take a job — all assisted by an on-staff "talent executive."

Boring progress for NY-DC Hyperloop route. It's the Daily Crunch.

THE DAILY CRUNCH
TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 20 2018 By Darrell Etherington

Musk's Boring Co. plows ahead, Spotify eyes the hardware game and Sony enters the AI-powered taxi hailing market (yes, one exists). All that and more in The Daily Crunch for February 20, 2018.

1. Elon Musk's Boring Co. has another key approval for Washington-New York route

Remember when Elon Musk built a rocket company? An electric car company? Those seemed unlikely. The goal of building a hyperpseed underground tunnel-based means of transportation linking NYC and Washington, DC seems equally unlikely.

But now it has a key provisional approval, with other steps to follow. If Musk just keeps putting one foot in front of the other, we'll have a hyper speed vacuum train in no time.

2. Spotify readies its hardware business

Spotify gets so much right about its current partner-based hardware ecosystem that I'm excited to see what it does with its first-party efforts. Or afraid. Maybe both.

3. Sony will launch its own AI-powered taxi hailing service

This sounds opportune, and it'll use existing taxi companies so it doesn't even have to get over the same kind of hurdles as Uber.

4. Pebble founder lands a gig as YC partner

Eric Migicovsky has been in and around Y Combinator for a long time now, but he's officially a Partner as of this past month. He basically invented the smartwatch, for better or for worse, which merits some kind of recognition. In unrelated news I stopped wearing my Apple Watch two months ago and I'm so much happier.

5. Android Pay is now Google Pay (?)

This means something... I think. It'll come to me, check back in later. So long as they work I don't care what you brand them Google, and this rebrand effort might frankly be MORE confusing.

6. Snapchat adds GIF stickers

The only thing we can all agree on is that everything is made better with GIF stickers. Giphy is doing eternal cosmic entity of your choosing's work.

7. Qualcomm is hoping to close its $44 billion acquisition of NXP

More silicon industry consolidation is afoot, as Qualcomm has upped its offer for NXP to $44 billion from $38 billion to help close the deal. Qualcomm itself is being pursued by Broadcom, but this could give them some breathing room there.
