Uber Joins Grubhub and Seamless in the Food Delivery Game

The Internet has turned takeout food into a big, big business. Gone are the days when one would have to waste precious breath talking to a restaurant employee. You can get that triple bacon cheeseburger just by pushing a few buttons, thanks to delivery services such as Grubhub and Seamless. Now there is a new competitor on the digital block, transportation company Uber. Wait, really?

Uber, better known as the taxi service your one friend won't stop talking about, has just unveiled UberFresh for bring fresh food to your doorstep. Each delivery will charge a flat fee of $3 and the company claims a restaurant delivery will only take ten minutes. 

As of now the menu choices are limited and the service is only available in Los Angeles. That's right. Not only does Uber think they are above the law, but also above the ebb and flow of Los Angeles traffic. Ten minutes?!
