Fulfillment by Amazon: What Amazon doesn’t tell third-party sellers

Apparently it's free marketing week (or, can we please all stop droning on about drones?)

So Amazon is experimenting with drones that will deliver its goods via “Prime Air” — its “octocopter” robotic aircraft that will deliver packages up to 10 miles from Amazon’s warehouses. And UPS, unwilling to be left completely out of the consumer orgy hype cycle, says it has been testing and evaluating delivery drones as well. TechCrunch thinks drones should be used to rent stuff instead of buying it, and CNN is investigating how they would work.
