Domino’s brings easy pizza ordering to the Apple Watch

While Chipotle truly innovated last year with its burrito button Apple Watch app, Domino’s is joining the party by finally making it possible to easily order pizza for delivery using the Apple Watch. The convenience factor is arguably in leagues with the Tesla summon watch app we recently saw, and it’s safe to say 2016 has officially arrived.

Domino’s already offered delivery tracking from the Apple Watch, and the latest version of the watch app actually lets you order pizza by using your personal pizza preferences. Just make sure you have a Pizza Profile and save an Easy Order ahead of time, then the next time you’re hungry and in a hurry, launch the Domino’s Apple Watch app and await your delivery.

Domino’s says it’s the first national pizza company in the country to bring this capability to the Apple Watch. Going to the door to retrieve your pizza may even add a little credit to the Apple Watch’s Activity rings. Also: 🍕⌚️🍕⌚️🍕⌚️! Amazon Echo also recently learned how to order Domino’s Pizza.

Here’s what else has changed in the Domino’s Pizza iOS app:

Snip! Slash! Staple! Make A MacBook Desk Stand From An Old Pizza Box.

I always thought the handiest thing I could do with a pizza box was to toss it in the trash and use the little three-legged plastic widget (the one that stops the lid from touching your cheese) as a milking stool for my Barbies.

But I was wrong. Assuming that you can keep the cheesy grease off the box, then a few cuts and folds will turn it into this awesome MacBook stand.

Mmm… Pizzzzaaaa… Oh, sorry. I didn’t know you were still there. Well, at least now I have an empty pizza box to make this project.

The design, by Russia’s Ilya Andreev, is ingenious. It requires a few quick cuts and creases, plus a staple or two, and you’re left with a wedge of cardboard which will hold a 17-inch MacBook or smaller at a 25-degree angle. There’s even a cable router formed from one of the steam holes.

I have saved this to my Evernote to be used next time I’m staying in a hotel. I invariably order up a $20 pizza from room service, and once the night porter has defrosted me a margarita, microwaved it and carried it up to my room, now I’ll have some extra fun to enjoy while the oily mess oozes its way through my digestive tract.


  1. You might be wondering why I had Barbies as a child. The answer is that I stole them from the girls in my neighborhood to form my own private “joy division” for my Action Men – the UK equivalent of GI Joe. Hence the milkmaid fantasy outfits.
