Drones aren't the only way your package will be delivered in future

Amazon caused a stir earlier this month when they announced they were working on a drone that could deliver parcels directly to your door within half an hour of your order being placed. Amazon CEO and founder Jeff Bezos showed Charlie Rose from American TV news show 60 Minutes one of the drones being put to the test. Nicknamed the "Octocopter", the drones will deliver books and other small, light parcels to customers who opt for the "Prime Air" service - predicted to launch as soon as 2017.
While Amazon caught the headlines for their drone project, a revolution has been quietly going on in delivery technology over the past few years which means that we're all able to experience added convenience and speed Amazon claim their drones will deliver without the risk of being hit by an oversized toy helicopter. These innovations might seem rather mundane in comparison, but they will undoubtedly lead to more frustration free deliveries and customer satisfaction in the near term.
Make no mistake: delivery as we traditionally know it is broken. Thankfully experts and innovators from across the industry are working on fixing it, and they're closer to realising their goals than Amazon is to launching their drones. Customers report two major frustrations with deliver today: it doesn't arrive quickly enough, and when it does arrive they're not in to receive it.
While some delivery companies appear to be happy to continue with the current broken model, others have realised that future business from online retailers will require better customer satisfaction. These smart delivery companies have already fitted their fleets with a technology called telematics. Telematics has been around in different forms for several decades now, but is currently mainly used by fleets to track vehicle and driver performance. Shippers using this tech have been able to drastically reduce their fuel bills by intelligently routing deliveries based on factors such as traffic conditions, vehicle whereabouts and time left in the drivers working day. These innovations have already reduced the cost of home delivery, allowing more online stores to offer customers free delivery options.
But telematics is beginning to offer more customer convenience too. By integrating fleet tracking and package tracking, the best fleet telematics systems are now able to give customers more precise delivery times. No more worrying about popping out to the shops on the day you're parcel is due to arrive, as you'll get a text an hour before delivery informing you of precisely when your order will arrive.
While evening and weekend deliveries are also becoming a common option - typically for an extra fee - another cheaper option for those who work long hours is already taking off. Delivery lockers, placed in venues such as local shops, parking lots and even subway stations are becoming a common sight in cities across the world. Boris Johnson, the Mayor of London, recently announced he was closing London Underground ticket booths in order to make space for delivery lockers like these where you can even get fresh groceries delivered. While Amazon is a big player in this market, there's many startups trying to get a piece of the pie. Lockers already deployed are often over subscribed, with pent up demand by customers for the convenience they offer.

OS X 10.9.1 is available now!

OS X 10.9.1
After several weeks of beta reserved for developers, Apple has released the final version tonight OS X 10.9.1 If you have already installed Mavericks on your Mac, you can update to the new version via the Mac App Store. As always, the manufacturer recommends the update to all users. It is supposed to fix bugs first of the new system and especially the disastrous management of Gmail accounts.

Based on the feedback received during the period, all the problems are not yet solved, and is still underway. Further bug fixing may happen after seen whether this new version fixes the remaining bugs or not. This version has build number 13B42. The latest beta availability of developers had to number 13B40. Other corrections listed by Apple Mail still concern, its smart mailboxes and contact groups.

VoiceOver function that sets all the text on the screen for visually impaired users sometimes had trouble with Emil. Another point discussed, shared Safari links were not always updated as they should. Note that Apple also offers an update of Safari (6.1.1) for owners of Mountain Lion. On the other hand, this version includes specific improvements for the last MacBook Pro Retina 2013.

The slowdowns especially with the video display on the 13“may be resolved with this update. Apple said nothing about it, but we imagine that one of the novelties of this version also is support for new Mac Pro, whose marketing is imminent, finally, if the Apple brand continues to meet its promise to leave in December. After OS X and Mac Pro, you should have the right in the wake of updates to Apple's professional software, including Final Cut Pro X and Aperture.

To return to the Mavericks, the first update "minor" is long overdue. 10.9.1 was released 55 days after the release of Mavericks. Previously, usually Apple always offers minor update to its operating system in the months following its release.
