I am not entirely convinced that Jeff Bezos is not actually just [bleep]ing with us.

I mean, it’s kind of blue-sky.

Not content with next-day delivery service through its Prime program, Amazon wants orders to land on people’s front porches in as little as half an hour.

Just when you thought the technology industry couldn’t get any stranger, the latest idea from the retail giant is to offer an audacious delivery-by-drone service.

In a Sunday evening “60 Minutes” program aired on CBS (ZDNet’s parent company) Amazon chief executive Jeff Bezos unveiled the new service, dubbed Prime Air, to CBS anchor Charlie Rose.

Not to mention, an absolute regulatory nightmare. I can see six, eight ways easy to use this thing to ruin somebody’s day (and HELL no but I’m not going to tell you how).  If I can, Bezos can, too.

Plus, he’s got enough money to create an EPIC-level practical joke in this regard.  EPIC.

    Until I see logistical infrastructure being assembled, I’m certainsure he’s just messing with us.

    Those few places that have a population density high enough to make the idea vaguely workable, also aren’t the types of places where you can just drop a package on the front porch and walk/fly away.

    If we can get Nike’s in 30 minutes, just think how quickly we’ll be able to get pizzas.
