The tech news you want to know

We have good news for anyone who eats takeout in their car (guilty). Uber Eats reportedly wants to upgrade your dining experience to include an actual table, with a new feature in select cities that lets users order food via the app, and then dine inside of the restaurant. Goodbye, long wait for a table. Speaking of tech, Waymo—Google’s former self-driving venture—has been given permission to transport customers via its robotaxis in California. The permit came in yesterday, and will allow the company to have Waymo employees hail vehicles and bring guests along for the ride. Part of us would prefer a human-powered Uber, but the other half would be relieved not to have to make small talk about the weather or get asked to give five stars. Fingers crossed the robots mind their own business.
