We keep hearing about it over and over again.

Hard to say how cooked these reports happen.

Is amazon getting very close to by asking the faa for approval?

I think this is par for the curse to make sure they can do it outside their warehouse.

They want to take drones out to the wild and do some delivery there.

This is just dotting the i's and crossing the t's to make sure the faa doesn't come swinging in and say you are a bunch of bad guys.

I am not expecting to see anything here in san francisco or san diego.

I think it is fine that they are exempt from the restrictions that the faa has placed right now on commercial drones.

You just need to set up multiple profiles.

That may be beyond some people.

It is a lot better than it used to be.

They should have seen this coming, they have to bear some of the responsibility.

To you agree?

, i'll -- do you agree?

I like being on the other side.

Our last story involves alibaba.

It gears up for an initial u.s.
