In what is allegedly not an April Fools stunt launched five months prematurely, Jeff Bezos announced that Amazon plans to start delivering packages by drone. He took to CBS’ 60 Minutes last night to announce that packages less than five pounds will be mailed by the flying robots as part of its “Amazon Prime Air” program.  By 2015, Mr. Bezos plans to disrupt our peaceful skies with thousands of Amazon-branded drones dropping off Kindles, DVD copies of Magic Mike and infinity scarves to people’s yards within thirty minutes of placing the order. Theoretically, the octocopters will wait patiently at the end of the conveyor belts located at its several dozen fulfillment centers.
