Re: UPS and data
As an aside, I feel like the biggest competitor to UPS, Fedex, or USPS is not each other - it's Amazon.
Many, many times I've decided against shipping something myself. If I need a gift to send to someone, I never go buy one and ship it. I buy it from Amazon and let them take care of that shipping hassle for me. There have been times where I've opted against shipping something I already had (returned it) and bought it again through Amazon JUST to avoid dealing with shipping.
I can't wait until I can use my own personal Amazon drone to just deliver things for me. Or better yet, I can print out my own drone on my 3-D printer and let them do the dirty work.
