Journalists are increasingly making use of drones to help them to complete a number of tasks that they would have found more difficult in the past. Experts have used drones to capture photographs and video of breaking news stories to provide coverage as well as to spy in order to help with investigative journalism. The practice is so important that many universities that teacher journalists are now including drone flying lessons.
More and more companies are beginning to use drones to make deliveries to their customers. Amazon has experimented with the technology to send out a variety of packages while some pharmacies have even sent prescription medication to patients. The most bizarre use though is in the delivery of pizzas, with Dominos and others have sent out food orders using drones.
