While we’ve been watching the sky and waiting for drone deliveries from Amazon, the tech giant came at us from the ground this week with the launch of “Scout,” an autonomous delivery robot that looks like a cooler on wheels.

GeekWire’s Todd Bishop, Monica Nickelsburg and Kurt Schlosser discuss that story and more in this week’s episode of The Week in Geek. We also take a look at the app that helped new U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s election effort in New York. And, has Bill Belichick’s Microsoft Surface tablet landed yet?
