Uber buys Postmates for $2.65 billion — and traders are into it

Ride-hailing giant Uber‘s stock price jumped more than 5% on Monday following its purchase of delivery service Postmates for $2.65 billion.

Uber confirmed the deal in a Monday press release after a flurry of reports over the weekend.

The acquisition comes less than a month after Uber‘s talks to buy out Postmates rival GrubHub fell through, leading the European JustEats to acquire GrubHub instead.

According to Uber, this should ultimately lead to more consumer exposure for restaurants — and hopefully (for Uber) it also boosts the service’s overall market share.

Fortnite Party Royale Hosts Opus United's We The People

Party Royale introduces a new island in Fortnite filled with unique activities such as time trials and soccer matches.

Fortnite, which finally left Early Access three years after it launched in 2017, launched Party Royale in May with a show headlined by Dillon Francis, Steve Aoki, and deadmau5, performing back-to-back sets.

Business is not and should not be only about the bottom line

Hepsiburada quickly launched a program to offer commercial, operational, logistics, and fulfillment services to manufacturers and retailers affected by the restrictions, and it worked with Turkey’s Ministry of Commerce and Industry to create an initiative that provided marketing and sales support, and in some cases, discounts on commission and logistics support.

“We became a lifeline, not just for the consumers but for small businesses and our merchants,” Doğan Boyner says.

Doğan Boyner has a track record of opening the Hepsiburada platform to struggling businesses.

The women’s program, Doğan Boyner admits, “does not have a positive impact” on profits.

In order to prepare Hepsiburada for operating through the pandemic, Doğan Boyner says the company provided all employees with personal protective equipment, organized shifts for smaller groups, and added extra service buses so employees could commute safely.

Xiaomi Mi Mix 4 might have a small phone variant as Lu Weibing sparks speculation with Redmi Note 8/Apple iPhone 4 comparison

Browsing through the comments shows that two particular devices are mentioned quite frequently: the Xiaomi Mi Mix 4 and the Redmi K40.

As this is a Lu Weibing post, and Xiaomi is famous for its subtle marketing ploys and teases, it’s unsurprising that a lot of comments on the post have focused on the potential of a future small-screen smartphone coming from either the Xiaomi or Redmi stable (or both).

Redmi President Lu Weibing appears to have been pondering the subject of phone size when he posted an image showing an iPhone 4 (4.54 inches body; 3.5-inch display) on top of a Redmi Note 8 (6.23 inches body; 6.3-inch display).

A post on Weibo by Redmi boss Lu Weibing has sparked speculation that either Xiaomi or Redmi is planning on releasing a small phone.

Another Redmi executive, Wang Teng Thomas, recently revealed that the company was “considering the demand for small size”, so it seems more than possible that a Xiaomi/Redmi small phone is being developed.

It’s important to point out that the updates arrive with Samsung’s OneUI 2.0.

EU Regulators Checking if Fitbit Deal Will Boost Google's Clout

EU regulators are checking whether Google's purchase of Fitbit might allow it to drive rival makers of wearable devices, app developers, and other online service providers out of the market, and boost its dominance in online advertising and search.

The EU queries underscore the importance of Fitbit's trove of health data generated from its devices, which are used to monitor users' daily steps, calories burned and distance travelled, and how this could further extend Alphabet-owned Google's market power into a fast-growing area.

A 47-page questionnaire to potential rivals asks if the deal will reinforce Google's dominance in general search and online advertising and how the smartwatches and fitness trackers market will develop if the Fitbit deal does, or doesn't, go ahead.

"In your view, would the aggregation of Fitbit's data to Google's database strengthen Google's position in the supply of online search advertising services?"

Another 11-page questionnaire asks healthcare providers whether their customers would migrate to a new Google competing service in the event Google has access to Fitbit's devices or data.

Samsung updates the 2019 Galaxy Tab A 10.1 and 8.0 to Android 10 with One UI 2.0

Cheap Android tablets still exist, and Samsung's Galaxy Tab A line is one of the most prominent (and long-running) proponents of such products.

The company is now continuing its Android 10 update march with a couple of such cheap tablets, namely the 2019 versions of the Tab A 10.1 and Tab A 8.0.

The Galaxy Tab A 10.1 is getting the new software build T515XXU4BTFK, while the Galaxy Tab A 8.0 is receiving build P205DXU5BTFB.

Interestingly, the Galaxy Tab S6, S5e, and S4 got updates to Android 10 with One UI 2.1, but it looks like the more affordable Tab A series members don't deserve the .1 jump.

The updates will hopefully make their way to the Wi-Fi only versions of the two Galaxy Tab A (2019) sizes soon.

Lessons and Regrets from My $25000 Launch

By the end of the first day I had my marketing page up on Gumroad and announced the book on DEV and Twitter (DEV embed ).

(I wasn't wrong on that one...) I spent the first day not writing - I decided I wanted to presell the book, so I stressed out over picking a name, picture, and writing marketing copy.

It's not too late for me to implement Frontend Observability - but i had no time to futz around with this before my launch Get professional design for the book and for the site.

Podia has better emailing, take rate, affiliate/coupon system, membership/webinar support, and a no-code frontend with good custom domain support (i had trouble with Gumroad's).

I would spend about 4-5 hours researching titles alone on that first day before settling on "Cracking the Coding Career") When setting goals I estimated it like such: If I took 2 weeks to complete it and I valued my time at $200k/yr, I would need about $7.7k to break even.

However, Ming-Chi Kuo mentioned in his report that a new 14.1-inch MacBook Pro with a mini-LED panel might arrive in early 2021, so there are lots of products to look forward to.
