Walmart shuts down its experimental personal shopping service, Jet black

Walmart is shutting down its personal shopping service, Jet black, on February 21, after struggling to find adoption or additional investment. The service had allowed New York-area customers to text message orders for home delivery. According to its website, Jet black will now no longer accept new orders and will refund its customers their most recent $50 monthly membership fee. The retailer is trying to spin the shutdown as a learning experience, noting that part of the initiative was to test a...

Walmart is shutting down its exclusive Jet Black shopping service and laying off almost 300 people

Walmart's New York City-based, members-only shopping service Jet Black will shut down on February 21. The Wall Street Journal's Sarah Nassauer first reported that the Walmart-owned venture would shutter. But Walmart may still be able to use technology developed through Jet Black. A Walmart spokesperson told Business Insider that the retailer will "focus on how to leverage Walmart's infrastructure to make conversational commerce scalable."

I drove a $76,000 Cadillac XT6 and $70,000 Lincoln Aviator in a battle of three-row American luxury SUVs — and the winner was clear (GM, F)

I drove 2020 versions of the Cadillac XT6 and the Lincoln Aviator back-to-back on different coasts. My Lincoln Aviator tester was a hybrid-gas-electric model that outdid the Cadillac XT6 by a wide margin on horsepower. Both SUVs labor in the competitive three-row segment, which offers customers versatility, but at the price of cargo area when the third row is in use. The 2020 Lincoln Aviator Grand Touring was the clear winner in this comparison, and I actually deducted points before I made my ...

I drove a $76,000 Cadillac XT6 to find out if this luxury 3-row SUV is a mini Escalade — here's the verdict (GM)

I tested a 2020 Cadillac XT6, a luxury three-row SUV that sits between the big-guy Escalade and the smaller XT4 and XT5. My tester was well-optioned and richly priced, at $71,585. The 310-horsepower V6 engine was competent, but I experienced some issues with the vehicle's all-wheel-drive system in snowy weather. I chalked them up to being on all-season tires, but I also thought that the XT6 could use a bit more power. The XT6 is worth a look, but it's my least favorite of Cadillac's current SU...

John Cho will lead Netflix’s live action version of ‘Cowboy Bebop’

A live action version of the anime series “Cowboy Bebop” has been in and out of development for years, but it looks like Netflix is actually going to make it a reality. The streaming service announced last fall that it would be producing a live action “Cowboy Bebop” series. Today, it revealed some key casting: Star Trek star John Cho will play the lead character Spike Siegel, a bounty hunter who travels the solar system with his partner Jet Black (played by Mustafa Shakir). In addition, Danie...

2019 Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban Premier Plus Special Editions

Well, yes, what we have here is yet another special edition Chevy SUV. Only this time it’s a double feature, with the same treatment given to both the 2019 Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban. The treatment is called the Premier Plus, and it’s a pretty dope package.  The whole point of introducing the Premier Plus models, mind you, is for Chevy to expand the availability of the popular 6.2L V-8 engine (420 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque) within its full-size SUV lineup. So it’s not longer only ...

2018 Mazda3 Sport Black Goes on Sale in the UK

Following the Sport Black version of the Mazda2, UK customers now get the same treatment for that car’s big sister. The new Mazda3 Sport Black limited edition is now on sale in the UK with some nice extra features and a little bit of exclusivity, priced at £21,595.  Granted, something like Mazda3 is never ‘exclusive’ in the real sense of the word. But the 2018 Mazda3 Sport Black is limited to just 700 units, and it comes with some distinguishing features on the outside to set it apart from r...

We drove a $73,000 Cadillac XTS V-Sport and completely fell for its retro charm and secret power (GM)

The Cadillac XTS V-Sport is a somewhat retro sedan that still has performance cred. It is big, comfy, and has a large trunk — but it also has a powerful V6, twin-turbo engine. The Cadillac Cue infotainment system and the Bose audio setup make for blissful highway cruising. The Business Insider Transportation team is fortunate in that we get to road test some extremely exciting cars. But humans are diverse in their desires, and spine-tingling performance isn't always what we're looking for. S...

First-Ever BMW i8 Roadster Revealed

Hey, BMW actually went and made a convertible version of their i8! That’s . . . that’s actually kind of cool! The i8, although not everything it’s cracked up to be, is a very interesting idea, and (thankfully) points to a green way forward that is not slow, dowdy, hair-shirted, and boring. Look: I know, you know, and anybody with half a brain knows that we are going to be driving electric cars, or some sort of hybrid car in the future. And I’ve said this countless times: if car manufacturers can...

2018 Corvette Carbon 65 Edition Debuts at SEMA

The biggest Corvette news at this year’s SEMA show is not actually about a heavily tricked-out model. It’s a new limited edition of the American sports car that headlines Chevy’s SEMA news. It’s called 2018 Corvette Carbon 65 Edition and it comes in 650 copies only.  The very name of 2018 Corvette Carbon 65 Edition should give you a lot of cues as to what this car is all about.

Colorful Poland

If I were to have colored a picture of Poland before my trip, I would have used steel blue, muddy brown, various greys, and maybe a little bit of green. I pictured Poland as industrial and dreary. Instead, what I found as I explored the country was a palette of many colors: pinks and plums, cardinal reds, and many different shades of green. With my camera in hand, I set out to try and capture some of these colors. Soft Pinks and a Wedding Parade Just outside the Poznań Town Hall in dow...

Limited Edition Burberry Beauty Box at Sephora

I love being able to try out products and this limited edition BURBERRY Burberry Beauty Box ($35 at Sephora) has some great items that are perfect for fall. Everything comes in a small Burberry box and the price is just perfect to let me sample some items I wasn't ready yet to splurge on. Keep in mind everything is sample sizes so they are small, but the blush compact is a really good size. My favorite item by far is the Cat Lashes Mascara. I have always wanted to try it but didn't want to sp...

Apple is reportedly going to introduce a 'mirror-like' finish for the iPhone 8 (AAPL)

Prolific leaker Benjamin Geskin tweeted last Saturday that the much anticipated "iPhone 8" will come in four colorations, but one of them will apparently be a new "mirror-like" finish. Geskin attached a photo of an older iPhone with a case that has a mirror back to give an idea of what the iPhone 8 might look like with the hyper-reflective glass back. It would not be a first for smartphones, however, and not even for Apple itself. The firm already released the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus with the new "...

You'll have to pay at least $100 more for the red iPhone 7 (AAPL)

Apple announced a new red iPhone 7 with a matte metallic texture on Tuesday, and it looks gorgeous. My colleague Rob Price thinks it's exactly the kind of break we need from the monotonous " metal body, available in silver/gold/black" and glass designs we've recently seen on many smartphones. Yet, there's a caveat to breaking away from that monotony, and it takes the form of a higher price tag. The Special Edition (Product) RED iPhone 7 starts at $750, and the red iPhone 7 Plus at $870, both o...

I've had the iPhone 6s Plus for over a year, and I'm so happy I didn't upgrade to the iPhone 7 (AAPL)

I bought the iPhone 6s Plus when it came out in September 2015 for $800+ (with taxes),  and I couldn't be happier that I saved $800+ in 2016/2017 by not upgrading to the iPhone 7 Plus. Don't get me wrong. The iPhone 7 Plus is a great phone that's objectively better than the iPhone 6s Plus. It has a faster processor and a better camera with dual lenses that makes for beautiful photos. Arguably, those two specific features are the main reasons why someone should upgrade to a new smartphone. With ...

ColorWare offers custom-colored AirPods because earwax looks great on Jet Black

Apple isn’t big on options. Its $159 headphone, the AirPod, is a prime example. It only comes in two colors: white, and the color white used to be after you’ve used it six months. Ahem, moving on. Colorware, the company behind the retro-themed iPhone and MacBook, is back at it. For the ridiculously ridiculous price of $289, you can gloss over the standard white, and customize your AirPods using one of 58 colors. Or, drop an additional $30 for a matching case. At the low cost of just $319 — doubl...

Would You Buy a $1,000 iPhone?

This year is a momentous one for Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL) because it marks the iPhone's 10th year. That's ratcheting up expectations for what the company may have up its sleeve, especially since 2016's iPhone 7 and 7 Plus only received incremental updates within the same overall design (not like that hurt sales at all).The most recent speculation comes from Fast Company, which is reporting that the 10th-generation iPhone might incredibly be priced at $1,000 or more. That would be even higher than ...
