Amazon Goes from Amazing to Annoying

Hand me the skeet shooting shotgun: Delivery drones are coming: Jeff Bezos promises half-hour shipping with Amazon Prime Air. Really? Bezos needs to spend more time on his yacht with some bimbo eruptions. He was once an interesting fellow. Now he grows dull.

Your Say

I bet he figures that any possible conflict with commercial or general aviation will be resolved in his favor by the man who doesn't have to stand for re-election again. Couldn't say how he plans to deal with pets or little children being hurt by one of these things.

Methinks he's grown to like seeing his name in the paper. See: Trump

Its just publicity and a curiosity. It would cost 10 times as much to drone packages around than to move them normally.

There must be some neuro-toxic component in silicon-infused money that drives people bat-shit crazy.

Yes, Grace. Totally agree.

However, I have an additional thought: can't you just see the POCs (people of color) launching a new game? "Knock over the drones." Not only amusing, but you would have a daily potpourri of merchandise to fence!

Laughable tech, Marketing Gold.

Exactly, it was never about actually carrying out the practice it was about getting people thinking Amazon is cool and linking it to high tech. And it didn't cost them a dime in advertising fees.
