    Have to admit, if this does come out as planned, it'd be pretty cool.

    Thoughts?

    I have only one question, if someone order a product using amazon prime air, should they keep the drone too, or hit it with a RPG just for fun.

    I quote from YouTube.

    It'll be a long time before anything like this comes close to reality.

    This is more pratical that it looks, drones (if built correctly) are cheap, so they can account for stealing/depredation, the goods that it can deliver aren't way too big nor expensive, so they can account for robberies, and best of all, they seen to be silent and fly pretty high, so it won't really bother you with the noise.

    And if you go to the youtube comments, you'll se a whole myriads of people don't understanding that this is going to happend, either they like it or not.

    Stupidest idea in years but Jeff Bezos is laughing all the way to the bank with the free publicity he has gotten from CBS. I keep thinking of the model plane enthusiast that got decapitated by one of his own planes and then imagine the carnage that would ensue from a fleet of thousands of errant drones flying about the countryside.

    Can you imagine the panic on a expressway when on of these suckers fails and falls into rush hour traffic because of an electrical failure? I can see the lawyers lining up their commercial spots now; "have you or a loved one been maimed or injured by a drone?".

    Jeff Bezos is clearly not the second coming of Steve Jobs!
