Uber expands surge pricing to its food delivery service, UberEATS

venturebeat.com — Uber's business has long relied on surge pricing: When there's demand for rides, and not enough cars, the cost per ride goes up to incentivize drivers to meet the demand.

Y Combinator-backed language learning startup Verbling is going enterprise
