Deliveries R&D: Amazon testing locker system at 711 stores
If you don't want to spend a day at home waiting for the delivery guy to arrive with the latest camera or lens, help may be on the way if Amazon's new research project with 711 falls into place. You will be able to redirect otherwise missed deliveries to a 711 store of your choice where Amazon and 711 will install a secure locker system to hold your deliveries until you go there to retrieve them. I hope the 711s increase security if this goes live, because that's gonna make them an ever bigger target for thieves! Details at The Daily (via Techmeme, Engadget). More pictures at GeekWire.
