Uber ‘super app’ unveiled to add planes, buses and trains

Published

on

Uber plans to add long-distance travel bookings to its app this year on intercity trains, buses and planes. The plan is to turn Uber’s ride-booking app into a “super app” and a one-stop travel service.

“This aims to offer “seamless door-to-door delivery,” said Jamie Heywood, regional head of Uber for the UK, Northern and Japan Europe. The UK, considered one of Uber’s largest markets outside of North America, will launch the service before the wider network launches.

The company hopes that the addition of new modes of transport will expand the scope of its core haul business, as customers use their community of drivers to travel between transit hubs, as well as earn commissions for customer preparation or bus fares. Prior to the pandemic, about 15% of Uber’s trips were to airports, so the company hopes that by integrating flight booking and ticket sales, these higher-margin trips can be boosted.

In the latest summer season, the UK became one of the first major Uber markets to see passenger numbers return to pre-pandemic levels. Over the past 12 months, the number of consumers while traveling and delivering food has reached 20 million people.

After years of uncertainty from regulators over its ability to operate in London, the Metropolitan Transport Authority granted Uber an additional 30-month license in March.

Google is making an important improvement to the way it captures Street View data for Google Maps with its new camera. In the image below, it’s a new modular system that weighs around 7kg and is no bigger than a house cat, according to Google. The new camera can be installed on any car with a roof rack and controlled from a mobile device. Previously, Google Street View cameras required a special vehicle mount and sophisticated processing equipment to operate.

The new camera will allow Google to expand the Street View feature. Google says the new camera will be in use next year.

It is also announced that Street View Studio will allow users to quickly and bulk upload panoramic image sequences to Google Maps.

Alien and Predator hunt for Android smartphones Details about the new

Android users have been targeted by a new spyware called Alien that can download malware or the Predator virus. The spyware was allegedly developed by Cytrox in North Macedonia.

Google claims that several exploits, which collectively fall under the Alien spyware category, were sold by Cytrox to various government-backed groups. CitizenLab, an online security research company, has also discovered several attacks, and Google claims they are all related to Alien spyware.

Google claims that zero-day exploits based on Alien spyware are used alongside some older exploits. It appears that malware developers are actively trying to take advantage of the time difference between when some critical bugs were fixed but not flagged as security issues and when those fixes were fully rolled out to the Android ecosystem.

The virus spreads mainly through email. Victims receive email messages with suspicious links. Either link redirects victims to a website that installs malware.

The virus can potentially record audio, hide applications, and perform a number of other actions. Google claims to have sent out patches to fix the vulnerabilities. However, it is important that Android users remain cautious when opening emails from unfamiliar sources. Also, email users should never click on links embedded in emails without first verifying the identity of the sender.
