    Bottle Service? We’ve Got a Drone for That

    By Jason Scavone

    Bottle fairies, you've had a good run. But like all childhood whimsies, that's only going to be tolerated for so long. Now it's time for the military-industrial complex to take over now.

    So Amazon’s Jeff Bezos announced that the online retailer hopes to deliver small packages by drone helicopter within five years. It seems like mere microseconds ago that drones were the stuff of distant dystopian wars we ignore.

    Game of Drones

    By By Jordan Valinsky | The New York Observer

    In late 2011, a slender Brooklyn resident named Tim Pool roamed downtown Manhattan, seemingly recording every minute of the Occupy Wall Street protests. Pool, an independent journalist, would use his smartphone to live-stream the demonstrations, sometimes for as long as 19 continuous hours, earning himself the nickname “The Media Messenger of Zuccotti Park” in Time. As the protests escalated, it became increasingly difficult for Pool to capture the civil disobedience from eye level. He yearned for an unhindered view—a higher vantage point, like from the sky.
