There is, one knows not what sweet mystery about this sea, whose gently awful stirrings seem to speak of some hidden soul beneath; like those fabled undulations of the Ephesian sod over the buried Evangelist St. John. And meet it is, that over these sea-pastures

    Careem has trialled food delivery since acquiring an online restaurant listing platform in February. It also offers digital payment services. — Reuters
    DUBAI: Careem launched a delivery service covering everything from takeaway food to pharmaceuticals on Monday, diversifying from its core Middle East ride-hailing business and increasing competition with rival Uber Technologies.
    The company has expanded its car service business to more than 120 cities in 15 predominantly Middle East countries since launching in 2012.
    "We believe the opportunity for deliveries in the region is even bigger than ride-hailing," chief executive and co-founder Mudassir Sheikha said at Careem's headquarters in Dubai. "It is going to become a very significant part of Careem over time."
    It plans to spend over US$150mil (RM 628.05mil) developing the delivery business, starting with food delivery services in Dubai and Jeddah.
    "Once you see us prove the model in the UAE (United Arab Emirates) and Saudi (Arabia), you will see us very quickly go to new markets," Sheikha said. "Egypt and Pakistan will come next and then very soon the rest of the footprint will follow."
    Careem, whose investors include German car maker Daimler and China's largest ride-hailing company DiDi Chuxing, has trialled food delivery since acquiring an online restaurant listing platform in February. It also offers digital payment services.
    According to a major news source
    The Careem NOW delivery service is a separate app to the car service and will be operated independently to the core business with Adeeb Warsi appointed as managing director. Warsi joined Careem in 2017 after more than seven years with the Boston Consulting Group, according to his LinkedIn profile.
    In October, Careem said it had raised over US$200mil (RM 837.40mil) from existing investors to fund its expansion.
    Careem will "most likely" close out the funding round in the first quarter next year, raising a total of US$500mil (RM 2.09bil) , including what was raised in October, Sheikha said.
    based on report from mystar.com
    Reuters reported in November Careem was looking to raise up to US$200mil (RM 837.40mil) from Chinese investors, and that it has been working with investment bank Jefferies as an adviser on investment options and fundraising, including a potential mergers and acquisition deal in the region with Uber.

    The outcome was largely the same: Amazon and Apple are running out of room in their West Coast hometowns and establishing a major foothold in a handful of US cities already known as second-tier technology hubs.
    But this week, at least, Apple may have won the prize for completing its search with the fewest hurt feelings.
    Apple announced plans Dec 13 to build a US$1bil (RM4.18bil) campus in Austin, Texas, that will create at least 5,000 jobs ranging from engineers to call-centre agents while adding more lustre to a city that has already become a destination for tech startups and bigger companies.
    The decision comes 11 months after Apple CEO Tim Cook disclosed plans to open a major office outside California on the heels of a massive tax cut on overseas profits, which prompted the company to bring about US$250bil (RM1.04tril) back to the US.
    The company said it will also open offices in Seattle, San Diego and Culver City, California, each employing at least 1,000 workers over the next three years. Apple also pledged to add hundreds of jobs each in New York; Pittsburgh; Boston; Boulder, Colorado; and Portland, Oregon.
    “They are just picking America’s most established superstar cities and tech hubs,” said Richard Florida, an urban development expert at the University of Toronto.
    Apple’s scattershot expansion reflects the increasing competition for engineers in Silicon Valley, which has long been the world’s high-tech capital. The bidding for programmers is driving salaries higher, which in turn is catapulting the average prices of homes in many parts of the San Francisco Bay Area above US$1mil (RMRM4.18mil). Many high-tech workers are thus choosing to live elsewhere, causing major tech employers such as Apple, Amazon and Google to look in new places for the employees they need to pursue their future ambitions.
    “Talent, creativity and tomorrow’s breakthrough ideas aren’t limited by region or ZIP code,” Cook said in a statement.
    Cities around the country offered financial incentives in an attempt to land Apple’s new campus, but Cook avoided a high-profile competition that pitted them against one another, as Amazon had before deciding to build huge new offices in New York and Virginia.
    Amazon could receive up to US$2.8bil (RM11.72bil) in incentives in New York, depending on how many it ultimately hires there, and up to US$750mil (RM3.14bil) in Virginia. Apple will receive up to US$25mil (RM104.67mil) from a jobs-creation fund in Texas in addition to property-tax rebates, which still need approval. The figure is expected to be a small fraction of what Amazon received.
    The government incentives offered to Apple seem “more in the line of normal business site selection” compared with Amazon’s public “shakedown”, said Mark Muro, a senior fellow at the Brookings Institution’s Metropolitan Policy Centre.
    “There’s a growing backlash in the country against the entire process of subsidies and relocation inducements,” Muro said. “That said, the Apple numbers for a very significant increase in jobs are much less eye-popping than the Amazon numbers.”
    The spots where Amazon and Apple decided to expand were obvious choices, based on an analysis released earlier this year by CBRE Research. Washington, D.C., ranked as the third best place in North America for tech talent, behind Silicon Valley and Seattle. New York ranked fifth and Austin sixth. No 4 was outside the US: Toronto.
    The new Austin campus, with about 3 million square feet (nearly 280,000 square meters) of office space, will be about a mile from another large office that Apple opened five years ago. Apple currently employs about 6,200 workers in Austin, making it the company’s largest hub outside Silicon Valley even before the expansion.
    The new jobs are expected to mirror the same mix Apple already has at its Cupertino, California, headquarters, ranging from jobs in technology and research that pay well over US$100,000 (RM418,700) to lower-paying positions in customer call centres.
    Cities have been eager to bring in more tech employers because their hires often make six-figure salaries. That can ripple through the economy, with new employees filling restaurants and theatres, buying property and paying taxes.
    But an influx of affluent tech workers can also drive up rent and home prices, making it more difficult for those in lower-paying jobs to make ends meet.
    “When tech companies invest in a place and try to hire thousands of workers, it is of course good news for tech workers who are already there and want to be there,” said Jed Kolko, chief economist for employment website Indeed.com. “But it can put a strain on the housing market and transportation.”
    Texas Gov Greg Abbott hailed Apple’s new campus as a milestone development that “truly elevates Austin as one of the premier technology hubs in the entire world”.
    Apple’s move was cheered Dec 14 by US President Donald Trump, who thanked Cook in a tweet for “agreeing” to expand its US operations. It was a sharp change in tone from September, when Trump responded to Cook’s concerns about tariffs by telling Apple to make its products in the US instead of China. Apple uses plants in China and elsewhere to produce components and assemble its products. – AP
