Those furious gun-toting Aussies were just a glitch. Let's try US drone deliveries, says Wing

Typical Google

From the Wing website: From our aircraft to our mobile applications and flight operations, safety and privacy are the guiding principles for everything we do. We’re committed to being transparent with you about our safety and privacy policies –– and we’re committed to being a true community partner that actively listens, responds, and respects your viewpoints.

From the article: This comes after tormented Australians ran Wing out of Canberra after a 12-month trial along similar lines. Locals even formed a pressure group to try to halt Google's drones, complaining about high noise levels – with Google ignoring their feedback.

Takeaway: Google's commitment to "being a true community partner" is as sincere as its commitment to privacy.
