Former Uber self-driving head Levandowski agrees to plea deal over Google secrets

UBR GOOG +1 more UBR GOOG GOOGL

U.S. Former Uber self-driving head Levandowski agrees to plea deal over Google secrets. SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - Engineer Anthony Levandowski, known for advancing self-driving car technology in the last decade, agreed to plead guilty on Thursday to taking sensitive documents from his former employer Google before joining rival Uber Technologies Inc. Federal prosecutors agreed to recommend a prison term of no more than 30 months as part of plea agreement in one of the most well-known corporate disputes in recent Silicon Valley history. Last month, it dropped what remained of a trade secrets theft case involving wearable device company Fitbit Inc and now-defunct rival Jawbone after a San Francisco jury acquitted the first defendant. The Levandowski case stemmed from accusations by Alphabet Inc's Google and its sister company Waymo in 2017 that Uber jump-started its own self-driving car development with trade secrets and staff that Levandowski unlawfully took from Google.

Stock Market Wrapup: Uber Shows Investors the Money; Netflix Won't Break the Internet

UBR NFLX

Stock Market Wrapup: Uber Shows Investors the Money; Netflix Won't Break the Internet | NASDAQ. Among some of the biggest movers, Uber Technologies (NYSE: UBER) bounced back from its recent slump as company executives reassured investors that the ride-hailing service appears to be able to deal with an extended period of losses stemming from the coronavirus outbreak. Meanwhile, Netflix (NASDAQ: NFLX) found itself at the center of an unusual controversy, with government officials asking it to take extraordinary action to prevent what could be a particularly ill-timed problem. Uber also doesn't have any major debt maturing before 2022, giving it some time to get its business back on track. Even after today's gains, though, Uber has still seen its stock lose half its value just since mid-February.

Chipotle and Uber Eats Launch Nationwide Delivery Partnership

CMG UBR

Markets. Chipotle and Uber Eats Launch Nationwide Delivery Partnership. Mar 18, 2020 4:38PM EDT. Chipotle and Uber Eats Launch Nationwide Delivery Partnership | NASDAQ. Announcing a pact to partner for deliveries nationwide today, Chipotle Mexican Grill, Inc.(NYSE: CMG) and Uber Technologies' (NYSE: UBER) Uber Eats are cooperating to deliver burritos, tacos, and other Mexican-style foods right to customers' doorsteps across America. Customers ordering online or through an app can customize their purchases, with a Delivery Kitchen team standing by at most outlets to make and package the meals. Image source: Chipotle Mexican Grill. Several features of the new arrangement aim directly at providing the healthiest possible eating experience to customers placing digital orders while the COVID-19 situation continues. All orders Chipotle sends out via Uber Eats are packed in special sealed packaging, designed to show whether the food has been tampered with. This helps to reassure recipients that their meal hasn't been touched by human hands since it left the restaurant's kitchens. The digital ordering process also lets customers opt for a "no-contact" delivery, which leaves the bag outside their door. While the delivery partnership between Uber Eats and Chipotle is permanent, a special promotion applies from March 18 to March 31. During this period, orders between $10 and $200 come with zero delivery fee. Normal service fees still apply, however, and certain types of orders, such as catering, don't qualify for free delivery. Chipotle aims to increase its delivery footprint during 2020, according to company statements. The new program may help it recover from its recent stock value plunge due to the coronavirus pandemic. The restaurant also plans to open drive-through digital order pick-up lanes at its locations this year so customers can retrieve food purchased online without leaving their vehicle. 10 stocks we like better than Chipotle Mexican GrillWhen investing geniuses David and Tom Gardner have a stock tip, it can pay to listen.

"The fans have asked for it, and we could not be more excited to finally deliver delicious Chipotle burritos, bowls, and sides within the comfort of their own homes.

Stock Market Wrap-Up: PepsiCo Peps Up; Uber Cuts Shared Rides

UBR PEP

Stock Market Wrap-Up: PepsiCo Peps Up; Uber Cuts Shared Rides | NASDAQ. Market participants hope that news out of Washington will eventually bring a fiscal stimulus package that will help ordinary Americans get through the coronavirus crisis, even as state and local governments take ever more drastic measures to try to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic. Conservative investors are looking at reliable consumer-products giants that can weather economic storms, and that's what helped PepsiCo (NASDAQ: PEP) climb strongly. However, the pandemic has had a dramatic impact on some businesses, and Uber Technologies (NYSE: UBER) suffered another blow as it had to eliminate one of its travel options for its users. Efforts like its decision to offer vanilla and cherry flavors for its zero-sugar Pepsi colas are designed to keep existing customers happy and bring in new ones. Yet despite its perception as a defensive stock, PepsiCo isn't afraid to make big moves. Even in the midst of the coronavirus crisis, the beverage giant made a buyout bid to purchase Rockstar Energy Beverages for $3.85 billion.

Uber suspends pooled rides in U.S., Canada to limit coronavirus spread

UBR AIR +2 more UBR AIR VOW JWN

The pooled option, which allows riders to book trips at lower prices by sharing the car with up to three other passengers traveling in the same direction, has been disabled for users opening the apps in the two countries. "Our goal is to help flatten the curve on community spread in the cities we serve," senior vice president Uber Rides and Platform Andrew Macdonald said in a statement. Regular rides and the company's food delivery platform Uber Eats remain available, but Uber said it was in contact with local authorities to adjust operations as needed. North America provides the bulk of Uber's revenue, but pooled rides make up only a small share of all bookings, data by U.S. cities showed. Beginning on Tuesday, Uber users in the U.S. and Canada will also see a message reminding them to consider if the ride they plan to book is essential and to "travel only when necessary," images provided by Uber showed.
