Uber has rolled out its UberRUSH package delivery service in initial locations San Francisco, Chicago, and New York City (Manhattan). UberRUSH is basically for business packages what Uber is for human passengers. While at first blush it may seem like it is competing with services like Amazon Prime Free (Amazon’s same-day delivery service) or even Amazon Prime Now (the Amazon one-hour delivery service), Business Insider is calling UberRUSH the “FedEx killer”. That’s because while individuals can use UberRUSH, it was really created for merchants and other businesses to use to get their product to local customers quickly and efficiently (and of course let’s not overlook the ‘cool’ factor).
The United States Post Office (USPS) is partnering with Amazon to have packages delivered to Amazon customers on Sundays. And this is not just for Amazon Prime customers, despite earlier reports. Now you can have your Amazon packages delivered on Sunday by the post office, right to your door!
A new crop of scam spam is going around, with subjects like “Copies of Policies” and “Changelog as Promised” and talking about things like the “Ocean, Warehouse or EPLI policy”. They are short – to the point – and spam scams. They contain links that go to malicious sites such as http://abstract.nassassin.com/wp-content/plugins/counterize/mail.htm, http://flexjobb.se/wp-content/plugins/mail.htm, and http://www.39moto.ru/wp-content/plugins/flv-player/mail.htm, and come from sender names including Brock Buchanan, Darien Forbes, A. Simmons, and A. Blanton.
Almost a year ago, Amazon introduce its frustration free packaging. Now Amazon wants you to let them know how they’re doing, with the Amazon Packaging Feedback program, through which you can let Amazon know whether your order arrived in packaging that was too big, too small, or just right.
