For those of you not watching 60 Minutes tonight:

Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos took to 60 Minutes to reveal the company’s latest delivery method: drones. In what is likely a cunning reminder of the e-tailer’s upcoming Cyber Monday sales, these bots will apparently be capable of delivering packages up to five pounds (86 percent of orders are apparently under that), with the aim of getting them to your house in under half an hour.

Yes, there are obvious technical issues here.  But I wonder how Bezos plans to handle the huge increase in inventory needed to make it work.
