With "Get It Now" App, San Franciscans Can Have Anything Delivered By Courier

When it launched with its first iPhone app last December, Soma-based Postmates represented what its founder, Bastian Lehmann, called “a FedEx for local deliveries” here in the city.

How Google's "Business Photos" Are Helping Local Businesses

Over the past two years, one of the many programs Google has been testing and developing is called Business Photos. It grew out of the “street view” aspect of Google Maps, which provides a 360-degree panoramic view of the area around a street address.
