With the prohibition on Internet gambling in America looking likely to end, it seems possible that millions of people in the US will soon be enjoying the benefits on online gaming. One company that has seen the potential of this future market is TaskRabbit, the chore completion service.
TaskRabbit is a service which allows people to outsource errands such as picking up laundry and groceries or taking a pet to the vet. The client agrees a price with a runner for carrying out a specific chore, and completes it in the agreed time, providing extra cash for the runner, whilst allowing the client to get on with the things that are important to them.
“I have a lot going on in my day having to deal with three kids,” said Mary Laudner. “TaskRabbit has helped me by allowing others to do some of my daily chores. It has helped me spend more time with my family.”
This kind of service will be welcome news to fans of online poker pokers, as it will give them plenty of time to tuck into a poker tournament without having to break off to run errands. Poker tournaments can often stretch over a few days, so at the moment players have to either quit the tournament or lose valuable hands by taking a break and sitting out while they run errands. With Task Rabbit, online poker players can use the service to keep their tournaments alive.
TaskRabbit is currently only available in San Francisco and Boston, but the company is looking to expand into other major cities such as Chicago and New York.
