NEW YORK -

Here's a look at your top business and tech headlines from Cheddar on News 12:

A big milestone for Amazon Prime. The company announced it has now delivered 2 billion items with one-day delivery in 2018. The top selling Prime Now product? Bananas. And the top selling item overall for Prime is the Fire TV stick. Earlier this year, Amazon revealed it now has more than 100 million Prime subscribers.

Instead of going out, more millennials are ordering in. A new YouGov survey finds $1.3 billion a year is shifting from going out to restaurants to getting food delivered. And when they are going out to eat - they are spending less. Millennials spend, on average, 14 percent on dining out than their Gen-X counterparts.

Ariana Grande's latest music video is a record setter for YouTube. The company says the video for "Thank You Next" got more than 50 million views in the first 24 hours since its release - the most ever. YouTube says 829,000 people turned in to watch the live premiere - also a record. The video was a throwback to the 2004 movie "Mean Girls."
