Ups and FedEx watch out


Ups and FedEx watch out

Originally shared by Rosa Golijan

Amazon's drones will deliver your orders in about 30 minutes
"It’s an audacious plan that [Amazon CEO Jeff] Bezos says requires more safety testing and FAA approvals, but he estimates that delivery-by-drone, called Amazon 'Prime Air,' will be available to customers in as soon as 4-5 years."

  3. I'd say it's about 50% real, 50% stunt. Drone delivery is on the horizon, but for Bezos to announce its arrival at this stage in the game seems like a PR stunt.
