The Apple Is Ripe 

I wanted you to know about two big tech stories this week. 

It definitely looks like a spaceship has landed in Cupertino, CA. After many years of being under construction, Apple’s new headquarters is opening in April on 175-acres. Twelve thousand employees will eventually work there. CNET has the whole story. Click here

UPS Tests Drone Deliveries 

Many of us, over the years, have questioned the use of dones to deliver our packages from various retail sources. While it still may seem implausible, you have to watch this video which shows how UPS tested a residential delivery service this week on a farm just outside of Tampa, Florida. The part I found fascinating is how the roof opened on a UPS truck, a package got inserted in the drone and how it took off and returned to the vehicle that moved to a new location. Pretty fascinating. Check it out on Tech Crunch.

  1. Oh, so fascinating, Lois! It did have a little, “oops” on the landing pad, but recovered just fine. Hard to believe that this will be the “modus operandi” of future deliveries. A glimpse into future shopping!
