  1. Home robot: That’s Vesta to you.
  2. Tracking wristband
  3. Amazon photographs your delivered package
  4. Amazon enters your home
  5. The most convenient of convenience stores
  6. Flail at delivery drones
  7. Unmasking bitcoin users for law enforcement
  8. Warehouse in the sky

  10. Amazon puts junk in your trunk

Dystopia isn’t here yet, but with all these schemes, it doesn’t feel all that far away.
