Drone news (civilian edition)

In technology on December 10, 2013 at 11:12 am

Non-military uses of drones (aka, unmanned air vehicles or UAVs) are proliferating, but Jeff Bezos of Amazon got folks buzzing recently by saying on 60 Minutes that Amazon might deliver packages via drone.

Reaction and analysis from the Christian Science Monitor:
Amazon plans drone delivery. Will Feds approve?

A skeptical ZDNet: Amazon’s drone delivery concept: PR stunt or real innovation?

And a prescient(?) post from Popular Science about what the Feds think of all this drone talk: This Is The FAA's Plan For Drone-Friendly Skies.
