Amazon seeks FAA permission to test drones outdoors near Seattle

http://www.reuters.com/article/2014/07/11/us-amazon-com-drones-idUSKBN0FG08B20140711

(Reuters) - Amazon.com Inc is seeking permission from U.S. regulators to test its delivery drones near Seattle, as part of a rapid expansion of a program that has sparked widespread debate over the safety and privacy implications of drone technology.

Chief Executive Jeff Bezos wants to use drones - small unmanned aircraft - to deliver packages in 30 minutes or less as part of the program dubbed "Prime Air." The company is developing drones that can fly at speeds of 50 miles per hour.

Several thoughts come to mind at once.....if you need your books in 30m or less, why don't you just go to the damned book store and get them then and there?

Also a joke about asking the FAA for permission to use unmanned flying robots over major American cities......so many jokes are built around that one.

I think this is all a bit surreal. If it were April I'd suspect a gag.

Amazon drops off a heck of a lot of stuff more than books. The wife orders everything from shoes to doorknobs to food.
