Announcing the Launch of Uncurb to Provide Choice and Transparency for Assisted Transportation

Online marketplace that helps caregivers find safe, high quality transportation for loved ones with limited mobility

Uncurb, an online marketplace that helps customers find high-assistance transportation such as wheelchair and medical transportation, today announced its official company launch. Currently serving Southeast Michigan, Uncurb provides customers with choice and transparency in their mobility options by curating a trusted network of committed and high-quality providers and partners to support mobility beyond curb-to-curb needs.

An estimated 25.5 million adults in the U.S. have travel-limiting disabilities, according to The Bureau of Transportation. Current on-demand ride-hailing companies have left a gap in services that require higher-assistance, especially as trust in sanitization, cleanliness and safety become crucial in today’s environment. Uncurb aims to close this gap by helping those who are impacted by sudden changes in mobility find, compare, and book vetted transportation providers specializing in higher-assistance services. Providers must meet and exceed marketplace standards before

As someone who’s attended so many launch events that he’s lost track of how many, I can tell you that they’re usually messy, raucous occasions where you spend half your time travelling, and the other half jostling with other excited journalists, vloggers, and fans for a chance to get your hands on the shiny new product in question for a precious few minutes.

Sure, the excitement is sometimes infectious and palpable, and there’s something to be said about experiencing a device first hand in a crowded experience zone, and you do get freebies. But, the whole experience can also, at times, be a lot less fun than you would be led to

Huawei reveals its next unmissable smartphone launch, but Android fans should steer clear

Huawei has a must-see new launch planned for later this month, with the Chinese firm confirming plans to unveil its new Mate 40 on October 22. The technology giant revealed the online launch date via its official Twitter page with a post that simply said, “Unprecedented Power is coming. Don’t miss the announcement on 22.10.20.”

The Mate series has long been Huawei’s most power-packed smartphones and it’s clear that the Mate 40 could take performance to a whole new level. Rumours about the Mate 40 remain pretty thin on the ground, but we’re expecting a device with the usual palm-stretching edge-to-edge screen, quad rear camera system, and access to the latest 5G speeds.

If Huawei follows in the footsteps of the Mate 30 and P40 series, the new Mate 40 will be a solid piece of hardware, but sadly, Android fans will probably want to give it a very wide

FIFA 21 Has Biggest Boxed Launch Of 2021 In UK, But Switch Version Flops

FIFA is a big deal in the UK, and the launch of FIFA 21 has done big business in the UK–with some caveats. FIFA 21 is the biggest physical game launch in the UK this year, but sales are down compared to FIFA 20, and the Switch version has sold poorly.

Gamesindustry.biz is reporting that sales on FIFA 21’s boxed copies are down 42% on boxed sales of FIFA 20. There’s a few potential reasons for that–the looming next generation of systems (which will bring new versions of FIFA 21), the growth of the digital market, and the COVID-19 pandemic making players less likely to travel to a store to buy the game all factors in.

It’s unknown how well the game has sold digitally, but this is still a big launch, overtaking the launch sales of The Last of Us Part II and Animal Crossing: New Horizons (both of

Sorry, SpaceX. Watch This Week As NASA Pays $90 Million To Launch U.S. Astronaut On A Russian Rocket

U.S. astronauts now fly to the International Space Station (ISS) from American soil, right?

So why is a NASA astronaut about to blast-off to the ISS from Russia at a cost of over $90 million?

Despite the success of “Launch America” back on May 30, 2020 when NASA astronauts Bob Behnken and Doug Hurley journeyed to and from the ISS in SpaceX hardware during the historic SpaceX Crew Demo-2 mission, NASA astronaut Kate Rubin will this week leave Earth from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan.

As I reported back in June, it’s the final part of an existing contract between NASA and the Russian space agency to send a US astronaut to the ISS aboard a Russian Soyuz spacecraft.
