How Amazon will use drones to deliver packages

Amazon unveiled Prime Air on 60 minutes last night. This is something their team has been working on in their next generation R&D lab. The goal of this new delivery system is to get packages into customers’ hands in 30 minutes or less using unmanned aerial vehicles. Putting Prime Air into commercial use will take some number of years as we advance technology and wait for the necessary FAA rules and regulations. This is footage from a recent test flight. See page at http://amzn.to/PrimeAir

Delivery companies and other e-commerce retailers should be very afraid. The USPS might also want to pay attention to this. Last I checked, drones didn’t have a union or pensions.

I gotta get this colander chopping board.

Colander chopping board

Rinse&Chop™ Plus is the latest version of this hugely popular, folding chopping board. The functional chopping board incorporates an improved, curved colander feature and a non-slip base. When folded and locked, its unique, innovative design creates a small colander at one end enabling food to be rinsed and drained. When opened and laid flat the design becomes a knife-friendly, non-slip chopping board. $15 on Amazon.
