Video: Millennial Stereotypes, Bank Hacks & Drone Deliveries

This Week In 60 Seconds looks at unfair perceptions of Millennial Generation workers, billion-dollar bank heists, and why we want drones to make deliveries.

Our weekly video wrap-up delves into a study from IBM that pokes holes in perceptions of Millennials as entitled selfie-snappers. The report says that Millennials have more in common with Gen-X and Baby Boomers than you might think. We also analyze reports of a massive hacker ring that stole a reported $1 billion from banks around the world. Last but not least, we look at consumer attitudes toward drones: A new report says we're ready for drone deliveries -- even if the FAA isn't.

You can find links to the full stories below. And don’t forget to answer our question of the week: Are you ready for drones to deliver goods to your door? Let us know in the comments section.

Drone Deliveries
In developed economies, consumers are going to accept drone deliveries because it will make the cost of purchasing an item go down.

Once, drone delivery is a common business model in developed economies, the fashion in-which drones are adopted in developing economies will be interesting to watch. In developing economies retailers follow the COD (cash on delivery) model because, a large number of the population is unbanked. These markets have a high growth potential and a low profit margin. A business that manages to cut its selling cost will be able to earn a healthy profit. However, these markets present a downside as well -- sending a $300 drone plus the value of a package, unsupervised into the market creates a potential disadvantage.
