Shhh... Be vewy, vewy quiet

from here and here

It's been a long time coming but Amazon Prime Air is finally coming to a backyard near some folks in Lockeford, California. Sure there are already other drone delivery pilot programs, but I'm not sure they'll be able to hold a candle to the amount of online retail business Amazon does. So I think we'll have to wait for Amazon's service to take off before we see a major shift in the modus operandi of porch pirates. Will we start calling them prime pirates? Who knows, but taking out a drone before it gets anywhere near someone's house seems like a win for thieves (especially when you see what they've done to shipping trains), so I have no doubt that it's going to become open season on delivery drones.
