According to The Guardian, we have glimpsed the future, and the future is drones.
That's right; not only will Jeff Bezos put Walmart out of business with drone-delivery of everything from your morning coffee to your grocery order to that jury duty summons, but drones will utterly revolutionize the US economy.
Apparently drones are the next big thing. Drones are to 21st century America what cars were to the 20th; the lifeblood of the economy.
States are outdoing one another to seduce drone manufacturers. Everybody wants the jobs bonanza that will come with a drone assembly plant. Probably a lost cause; just a couple more technological break-throughs and it'll be drones building drones.
Investors are betting billions on an explosion in drone demand.
It's a brave new drone world!
