We're excited to share Prime Air - something the team has been working on in our next generation R&D lab.

The goal of this new delivery system is to get packages into customers' hands in 30 minutes or less using unmanned aerial vehicles.

On the one hand, this is insanely cool, awesome, and scifi.

On the other hand, with timeframes like this and the big 60 Minutes reveal, it smells like a marketing trick during the holiday shopping season.

Amazon delivery drones? Not happening. But, if you want to talk about something that is, let's discuss the law enforcement and NSA drones that will soon be filling the skies to spy on us. Some places are already enjoying that future today.
