FAA Kills Amazon’s Drone-Delivery Plans, and Our Dreams of Robots Bringing Us Stuff
If a robot can't bring my late-night impulse buys then what's even the point?
Ars Technica is reporting that the FAA has shot down Amazon’s plans to use pilot-less drones to deliver packages. The issue could be revisited soon, but for now it seems Amazon and any other companies planning on using drones for commercial purposes are out of luck.

- Amazon’s drone plans were announced back in December
- Beer delivered by drones probably won’t happen now either
- UPS wanted some of the action too
