Because you maybe/probably/definitely forgot someone yesterday, last-minute subscription gifts should be your post-Snacks move (we all know a "monthly succulent delivery" kinda person).
Stocks chilled near record highs over the Christmas day off while Uber was busy moving a in different direction (more below).
Uber's co-founder and ex-CEO has sold all his Uber stock (and quit the board)
Travis don't want a lot for Christmas... There is just one thing Travis needs: 100% separating himself from his old company. Former Uber CEO Travis Kalanick just made 2 major holiday moves:
Less super pumped... Travis founded Uber in 2009, leading it to become the most valuable private tech startup in the US (its peak value was $68B). But he lost his CEO-ship in 2017 and wasn't even invited to ring the bell on IPO day this May. Three issues caused his CEO-ousting:
"...To focus on his new business..." Those are the critical words we noticed in Travis' press release. His new startup, CloudKitchens, is a spinoff idea from Uber Eats: Renting out fully-equiped kitchen space for restaurants that only deliver. He's pouring his own $$$ (and $400M from Saudi Arabia) into the idea. This holiday breakup with Uber isn't just personal — it's also his bet on the future of food logistics.

And the price for warehouse space keeps rising.
Ecommerce is starting to change how cities are built... And you know we need a better urban design strategy when Old Navy has to partner with Postmates to deliver last-minute Christmas gifts. Here's what we're already seeing:
