Nintendo debuts Switch price and date, Apple to buy scripted TV shows?The biggest tech stories of the day include brand new info on Nintendo's Switch console, Apple's interest in scripted TV shows and a Google Maps update that'll let you order a ride share straight from the app.
This is CNET, and here are the stories that matter right now. Nintendo held a press event in Japan last night, and lifted the curtain on the company's newest console, the Nintendo Switch. The console will hit worldwide on March 3rd, and sell for $300 in the U.S. Some games that were announced include 1,2, Switch Splatoon 2 and Super Mario Odyssey. And then a surprise announcement for Legend of Zelda, A Breath of the Wild will launch side by side with the switch on March 3rd. The idea is that consumers might be convinced to switch music providers if their Apple Music subscription also included exclusive TV content. Finally, Google is rolling out an update to Maps that will bake ridesharing functionality right into the app. Starting soon you'll be able to choose a ride hail icon in the menu bar and see prices from Uber and Lyft and even order and pay for an Uber ride. All from within the app. The map's update will hit iOS and Android very soon. [MUSIC] You can save the day with the latest by downloading the CNET Tech Today app in the Apple App Store.
