Amazon Looking at Drones for Home Delivery

Amazon Looking at Drones for Home Delivery

Unmanned drones more accurate than FedEx but they may blow up your house.

In a new strategic move, internet shopping giant Amazon.com is turning to drones as a possible future delivery option.  It would allow them to cut out the middle man of postage and squeeze a bit more profit out of every low-priced sale.

"I was involved in a trial run.  They got me my package in record time," recounted Lance Smith of Wattlesbury, IL., "but they ended up taking out a family of five that was walking by in front of my house."

It's an interesting move, but with all of the out of work drones after military operations ended in the middle east, the market is flooded with potential "employees."  The drones could operate within a ten mile radius of the command center and deliver a five pound payload on target.

"This is a tremendous improvement over our initial trial runs," said Chief of Amazon Drone Strikes, Amos Burnston, "at first we couldn't get them to stop flying to Pakistan, but then we discovered a subroutine already programmed into the drones for American targets."

In other news, competitor Barnes & Noble scrapped plans to introduce their delivery catapult today.  When we reached out to head of development Sven Andersen about Amazon's plans, he simply threw down his clipboard and stormed off, muttering "We'll get you next time Amazon."

About the Author - Jeremy Shane


Jeremy was born in a small mountain village of a strange foreign land called Weystvurginea.  Banishment for liberal views saw him spend years wondering the east coast until he decided to bike to California.  When he saw how long a trip it was, he drove instead.  Now he's living it up in a low humidity climate, sometimes working on his photography and when not, he writes for us covering books (by way of his blog: Reading Realms), gaming, tv, movies, comics, conventions in the SoCal area, and creates a weekly webcomic: A Journey Through Skyrim.  If you look for him offline, start in the L.A. area; online start at: www.jeremyshane.info for his profile and all the social networks he's on... or just follow him on twitter, he seems to be on there a lot: @jeremyshane.
