AAA has launched a car sharing startup called Gig in the Bay Area. The startup comes out of A3 Ventures and is not like all the other car share apps. You can rent the car per mile, hour or day and drive it to your destination with the keyless app entry. Then, when you are done, you simply drop it off at any public parking lot or meter near the Oakland or Berkley area.

PayPal is no longer just a payment provider. It launched a new service called Business In A Box with WooCommerce & Xero. This biz in a box offers a plethora of tools and solutions for first-time businesses, as well as discounts from PayPal's partners and integration to PayPal Business accounts.

Elon Musk's Space X successfully launched and landed its Falcon Nine Rocket from a Launchpad in Florida. In 2015, the Falcon 9 received credentials from the U.S. Air Force and earlier this week, the rocket was carrying a classified satellite for the U.S. military. This is the second launch contract SpaceX holds with the Air Force. These contracts allow SpaceX to launch Global Positioning System satellites in 2018 and 2019.
