Wouldn’t it be nice if you could just push a button from your home or office and miraculously summon an ice cream truck to cater to your every whim? Maybe even one that doesn’t play that creepy music? Well, your dreams have come true: On Friday, Uber launches an on-demand ice cream delivery service. Summon the truck from your smartphone and 10 minutes later, a truck toting your favorite icy treats will appear. Orders are $12 and serve five of your hungriest officemates. Update: This is a one-day only treat. [Uber Boston]
