iOS: Waze has updated its iPhone app with a new feature that estimates what traffic will be like on any given day at any given time, which helps you plan your day accordingly. The feature, dubbed "Planned Drives", allows you to pick a destination and a day you want to travel. Then Waze looks at estimated drive times based on aggregated traffic history. If you set up an arrival time, Waze notifies you when you have to leave depending on the traffic at that moment. You can also just browse average drive times, which makes it a little easier to plan out errands or when its best to leave for a road trip. Of course, traffic is always changing, but this at least makes it a little easier to avoid those rush hours. The update is rolling out to iOS first, with Android on the way later.

Alas, my McDouble-loving friends, it appears McDonald's has sent the popular burger off into the sunset. From what we know, it won't be replaced with the McSingle, or the McTriple, leaving fans to make do with less-thrifty substitutes.
