Amazon Drone: Stunt or service?


‘Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the town
Not a creature was stirring, not e’en UPS brown.
The stockings were hung by the chimney with care,
In hopes that Amazon Drones soon would be there.

Seriously, Jeff Bezos? Do you really think that, God and the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration willing, Amazon will be delivering five-pound packages from your warehouses to customers’ doors by the holiday season of 2015?

Or did you just realize what a great PR stunt it would be to have Amazon Prime Air octocopters buzzing about on a national TV news show?
