1. Uber projects it will deliver food via drone by 2021. The company posted a job listing on its website that showed it was looking for an operations executive for the project. The listing said it would like to make its delivery drones functional as soon as next year, with the drones being commercially operational in multiple markets by 2021. Uber removed the job listing after an inquiry from the Wall Street Journal, saying the posting did not fully reflect the program which is still in its early days. UberEats has been a bright spot for the company, with some bankers valuing the business at $20 billion. - WSJ
