7-11 leapfrogs Amazon in drone celivery

This drone stuff is actually embarrassing, beginning to make humans look stupid in the eyes of the bots.

Mish quoting:
7-Eleven, the world’s largest convenience store chain, shared new numbers from its drone delivery experiment today. Seventy-seven customers in Reno, Nev., have now received items ordered from 7-Eleven delivered to their doorsteps via drone.All 77 flights were from one store to a dozen select customers who live within a mile of the shop. 

Get real.  Nothing beats a small flat bed truck and crane, a much cheaper. less expensive method. All the local deliveries are of this type, so the long distance carriers will just drop their stuff at the local depot for deliver bot.
This is an intelligent crane, can handle small or large or delicate deliveries.  But it won't jump curbs, to painful. Folks, get a small drop box.
