this is stupid. these things are going to get picked up by thiefs like baby sea turtles racing to the waves from a nest.

if thieves can crack into modern cars, whats going to stop a cordless powertool from cracking these open like an oyster?

amazon is laughing right now

"The drones travel at 4 mph overland and would be positioned in urban areas to deliver packages within 5 to 30 minutes of being summoned."

So basically you can only live up to 2 miles away from any of the shipping points.

Basically you could just walk your sedentary ass there at the same pace as the drone.

Amazon is getting closer to eliminating shipping costs all together by inventing...wait for it... A brick and mortar store!
