Sup Travellers?! Don't you just love Amazon? You can basically order any product that you want with just the click of the button. The only problem is that the product can take a couple days before it actually reaches you. However, Jeff Besos has seemingly a found a solution to that problem. He created Amazon Prime Air.


Techcrunch reports that Amazon is currently testing the Prime Air service which can send packages to customers in just minutes using drones. The "Octocopter" unmanned aerial vehicles in development are capable of flying packages from Amazon warehouses to customers' doorsteps in as little as 30 minutes from the time the customer hits the "Buy" button. In an interview with CBS, Jeff Besos says the drones can carry packages up to five pounds, which accounts for around 86% of the items Amazon sells The technology may not available right now but Amazon predicts that one day seeing Prime Air vehicles in the sky "will be as normal as seeing mail trucks on the road today." The product will be ready as soon as the FAA introduces regulations for private drones. That could be as soon as 2015. 

This is all good but the only problem is that the drones are unmanned. This means that they may not be any security for the product and thieves may have quite the time shooting the drones out of the sky. I don't think i'll use the Prime Air service for fear of having my product stolen before it reaches me. I'll definitely prefer to wait. However, Amazon is smart and i'm sure that they will find a way around the security issues. THEY BETTER FIND A WAY AROUND THE SECURITY ISSUES!! Anyway, my name is Trinikid and you've just been informed.
