eaglebeaky - REBEL MEDIA: Did thin-skinned Peoria mayor sic police on Tweeter? - Quincy, IL News - QuincyJournal.
The raid was "carried out by seven plainclothes officers" (and it sounds like additional officers who went to suspect's workplaces)? This certainly sounds like an excessive use (and by "use" I mean misuse) of police officers by Ardis -- especially for something like a Twitter account. How many officers are usually sent to arrest somebody for a non-violent offense? I can't help but think…

Amazon testing delivery by drones, CEO says

4 months, 2 weeks ago from Chicago Tribune/CBS News

From from Chicago Tribune/CBS News:

Amazon.com Inc. is testing delivery packages using drones, CEO Jeff Bezos said Sunday on the CBS television program "60 Minutes."

Bezos said the drones, unmanned vehicles that fly through the air, could deliver packages that weigh up to five pounds. That represents roughly 86 percent of packages that Amazon delivers, he said.

The drones, which would pick up items from Amazon's distribution centers and fly them to customer's homes, probably won't be put into use for four or five years, Bezos said.

"It will work, and it will happen, and it's gonna be a lot of fun," he said in the "60 Minutes" interview.

Amazon may start using the drones, which can deliver packages within 30 minutes, in four to five years pending Federal Aviation Administration approval, Bezos said
