Glovo Egypt is Back in Business

Published

on

Glovo Egypt has announced their return to business on their official social media outlets with a new offer that is expected to make their return a strong one.

They are charging their delivery service with only 5 EGP which is quite the offer and an impressive comeback.

Earlier in May, the European on-demand delivery application announced that they are shutting down their operations in Egypt, despite the promising effort they have been showing in securing a substantial market share in the Middle East. 

However, following this decision came the interference of the Egyptian Competition Authority in which they announced that the return of Glovo to the Egyptian market is possible and would be approved if the company suspends an agreement with another delivery service in the country that violates anti-monopoly laws.

Apparently, Glovo and another delivery service company have violated the competition law of the Egypt through a shareholder agreement.

These discussions were held last May and at the time the ECA has given both companies 30 days to execute the authority’s decisions.

There has been no official statement so far from the company about the reason of their return, only the announcement they released yesterday.

The Dubai-based space mission’s control team (operating out of the Mohammed bin Rashid Space Centre), is working alongside Japan to send the unmanned probe into Mars’ orbit. It is expected to reach there by February 2021.

“The Hope Probe embodies the culture of possibilities deeply rooted in the UAE’s approach, philosophy and journey of accelerating development since the foundation,” said Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of UAE and Ruler of Dubai.

The unmanned ‘Hope Probe’ will launch from Japan’s Tanegashima Space Centre, it has already undergone several extensive testing operations with a team that includes Emirati engineers supervising the probe’s pre-launch preparations.

Around Egypt: Your Go-to App for Travel Junkies

Around Egypt

All due to the quarantine, we’ve all been stripped of the privilege of travel and adventure. 2020 was supposed to be a year filled with so much excitement and new things to cross off your list, but unfortunately, to maintain social distancing and keep the coronavirus at bay, flights are cancelled and curfews were set.

This is the case for the entire world, no one is capable of traveling and if so, then they wont have much to do, especially since most beaches are shut down momentarily. Many foreigners abroad have been looking forward to visiting the our beloved pyramids and exploring the marvelous sites within Egypt. As for natives, many people have never traveled and explored this country and were hoping on doing so this year, but the dream of them doing that is shattered.

Which is why, a new application was created to feed the need of wanting to travel but doing so all the way from home! This application allows you to roam any area you want in Egypt. Officially, the application has been launched two days ago.

Apparently, this has been an idea that sparked to life back 2018 but no action was taken to pursue and actually create the application. They have chosen the right time to launch the app, no better time than in quarantine, huh?

The application allows you around 30 virtual tours across eleven governorates. It’s capable of showing you natural reserves hidden in Sinai such as the Rainbow Canyon and even the Hanging Church! The concept was in collaboration with Egypt VR.

So much effort was exerted into making this application come to life, It isn’t something that was created over night or over the time span of a year. Believe it or not, it took them over 7 years to develop in hopes of fully covering as much ground in Egypt as possible. What’s unique about this application is that it actually allows users to get a sense of how a certain place would look like before visiting it. How cool is that?

Yes it won’t be able to compensate the true adrenaline rush and your inner travel junkie but this will do for the time being! The application’s called Around Egypt and is available on Playstore and Google Apps, download and enjoy!

Google and Apple Join Forces to Build a Coronavirus Tracking System

Google and Apple are joining their forces and using the technology of Bluetooth to help governments and health agencies reduce the spread of COVID-19,  by launching a system that can track the spread of the virus.

This new technology will allow its users to share data through Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) transmissions and approved applications from health organizations.

 

According to both tech giants, the software will be able to inform users if they have recently come in contact with someone who’s infected with the virus.

They also added that the tool is set to released in a few month and building it into the operating systems of the billions of iPhones and Android devices across the world.

The new system will use short-range Bluetooth communications to establish a voluntary contact-tracing network and will collect data on phones that were close in proximity with one another. These data will be accessed by official apps from the public health authorities, users will report if they have been diagnosed with the virus and then the system will alert those who were in close contact with the infected person.

What makes this method more efficient is that unlike others that use GPS data, this Bluetooth plan won’t track the actual physical location of people. It will only pick up the signals of nearby phones at 5-minute intervals and store the connections between them in a database which can later be used to identify those who came in contact with an infected person.

Both Apple and Google have realized the social responsibility of working along with developers, public health providers and governments in the hope of harnessing a technology that can aid in stopping the spread of the virus.

We hope to see the technology implemented soon!
