With Amazon unveiling its plans for drone delivery, they’re upping the stakes in their fight with Google, both in terms of autonomous vehicles (Drone delivery versus autonomous cars), as well as in the ongoing fight over which company fulfills the most of our geeky, utopian fantasies. Bezos continues to fight the good fight, soon to dominate print innovation through Washington Post and retail innovation through Prime Air.
Although, we mustn’t forget all the regulatory hurdles this has to pass.
The video Bezos unveiled can be found here. I talked about delivery by drones in China in an earlier post. Another earlier post talked about Google being the most utopian of the current big tech companies, which I might have to revisit. This post discussed other new delivery mechanisms.
I just hope this will be included free of charge in my existing Prime subscription! Amazon doesn’t care about profits, right?
