I don't think so, but I'm no expert.

I saw Bezos talking about this delivery system on 60 Minutes and I immediately thought it was impractical because of theft and weather. I can image people trying to shoot them down even. Do these things fly well in all types of weather? I didn't think about the apartment number problem. Interesting. Maybe there will be Amazon chimneys on roofs of houses where the drone can deliever without even getting near the ground.

But do we really need stuff in a 1/2 hour? If so, it must be life threatening then and you should probably spend the time getting to the hospital.

What are the products one needs so fast, in 60 minutes? It looks pretty overkill. Also it will not be cost effective.

Y'all are missing it. That container will hold a six pack, and a pizza can sit on top. Bada bing.

There you go....pizza delivery by drone. What a concept! Now, that might be useful.

don't see this as for everybody.

would have to allocate drone flight lanes and designated drop zones.
