The CEO said it didn’t really make sense to use a two-ton vehicle to deliver something as small as a pizza. Domino’s is launching the service in New Zealand because the the company has less strict drone rules than the U.S.¬† The delivery service is part of a partnership with a drone company called Fkirtey, that’s also done similar demonstrations with 7/11.

You’ll be able to order your food using an app and then go pick it up once it’s finished. The printer even cleans up after itself.

iPhone 6 Hit By “Touch Disease”

iPhone 6 and 6Plus models are reported to be suffering from an issue that’s been dubbed “touch disease.”

A gray bar that flickers in and out appears at the top of the screen. The problem is blamed by some on chips coming loose from the circuit board inside the phone and gradually gets worse until the screen becomes unusable.

Apple hasn’t directly addressed the issue, but if your phone is under warranty, you can get a replacement.
