Daily Diversion: Serena Williams gets the Lego treatment
Serena Williams is currently preparing for the U.S. Open, where she is looking to clinch her fourth straight U.S. Open title and her fifth straight Grand Slam title. If she manages the Grand Slam, she will be the first tennis player since 1988 to win The Australian Open, the French Open, Wimbledon and the U.S. Open in the same calendar year.
In anticipation of her potential victory, Williams is gracing the cover of The New York Times Magazine and Sports Illustrated. And, as Buzzfeed reports, LEGO master builder Veronica Watson, who built a Lego version of the tennis star, is also honoring Williams. Watson’s creation is on display at the Legoland Discovery Center in Yonkers, N.Y.
Reports: Amazon mulls direct pickup, launches Prime Now in Seattle
SEATTLE — Amazon is reportedly planning to offer customers a new option for directly picking up orders.
According to GeekWire, Amazon is currently testing the service, called Amazon Flex, in its Kirkland, Wash., distribution facility.
A sign inside the facility instructs Amazon Flex users to take a ticket with a number, look for the number to be displayed, and then pick up their package. Amazon has not discussed exactly how Flex would work, or when or where it may roll out.
In addition, Amazon has launched its Prime Now one-hour delivery service in Seattle, with Portland, Oregon, as the next targeted city. It will be the first time that Amazon Prime Now will deliver beer, wine and liquor. It is the tenth major city to Prime Now since it launched in Manhattan in December.
