Trading places: Obama tries to get into online sales while Amazon announces package delivery by drone

Hopefully somebody’s filming all this for a reality show called “Job Swap.”

Shortly before the Obamacare website launched, President Obama promised purchasing health insurance would be as simple as buying a TV on Amazon, which of course it wasn’t.

In a strange coincidence, yesterday on 60 Minutes, Amazon’s Jeff Bezos announced that in the future, package delivery might be done by drone:

In the not-too-distant future, Amazon deliveries could come by air directly to your doorstep.

The online mega-retailer unveiled plans on Sunday for a new delivery service called Prime Air, which uses unmanned aerial vehicles — or drones — that look like toy helicopters.

The “octocopters” aren’t ready to take flight yet. Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos said in an interview on 60 Minutes that the drones would be ready to take flight in four to five years. But an Amazon spokesperson pointed to an updated post on the company’s website promising aerial deliveries as soon as federal rules change.

Those FAA rules could come as soon as 2015. The type of flights Bezos proposed are currently not allowed. Unlike some other drones currently used, these would be autonomous — they would fly without a pilot.

I think that when Obama met with Amazon they got their notes mixed up.

At least we know what company Obama might end up consulting for after leaving office. After all, he’s a self-proclaimed expert at killing people package delivery.
