Twitter Wins NFL Streaming

Twitter Wins NFL Streaming

Twitter just got the major news that they will be streaming 10 Thursday night NFL games. This is pretty big for Twitter considering they beat out some major powerhouses like Amazon and Verizon for these rights. A major pro for everyone is that Twitter won’t require sign-in to the service (looking at you, Verizon). The good news for Twitter is that this will (hopefully) bring back user growth and make current users happy. Touchdown for Twitter. (Source: Recode)

Uber Reveals New Pricing Policy

If you live in a city where Uber is still up & running then you are probably a bit too familiar with the dreaded surge pricing. We’ve all been in the position when our $7 ride turns into a $27 ride…not cool. Uber is hoping to lessen the surprises with their new upfront pricing policy. The new pricing policy will tell you exactly how much your ride is before you book it. So you’ll still be surge priced, but it’ll be disguised into the upfront price. (Source: CNET)
