Request a Lyft inside the Amtrak app when your train arrives
Lyft has teamed up with another brand, forming a partnership that totally makes sense. Now, Amtrak riders can request a Lyft directly from the Amtrak app. Lyft said in a statement that rides to and from transit stations are one of its most popular routes and account for a quarter of Chicago ride requests alone. Amtrak travel is available in 46 states and as of now, Lyft is available to 97 percent of Amtrak riders.

This is the most recent brand partnership for Lyft, which just launched its Minnie Vans for guest transport throughout Disney World. The company also recently joined forces with Taco Bell. These brand partnerships are smart moves, building on increasing momentum that has pushed the company past the one million rides per day mark and nudged its growth beyond that of Uber's.

Microsoft’s period of congenial cooperation could be over - by @ron_miller

Oh dear, people really hate the Zoella advent calender | Metro News
If there’s one group of people you don’t want to get angry it’s parents of tweenage children in the run-up to Christmas. They’re tired, stressed, under pressure to get amazing presents and constantly being ground down by pester-power.

Unfortunately the Boots and Zoella collaboration has done exactly that. Why? Because the general consensus is, this calender is a massive bloody rip-off.
