Well when I'm around my house and don't want to be chained to a table and chair my iPad is a lot nicer given it's larger size display space than my iPhone 6 Plus so I use it in preference to my MBP. or my phone for casual consumption...

Once drones are legal, perhaps, until then they'd be VERY expensive... OTOH for street level data collection a ground vehicle makes more sense than a flying object who isn't going to legally EVER be allowed to fly down Fifth Ave, say, at seven feet off the asphalt... Of course for Flyover data updating to keep it more current they'll be excellent, far cheaper than manned aircraft.
And in further news Amazon has actually opened a brick and mortar location:

Well, in the era of ubiquitous cellphones* the notification is easy: a text to the destination contact to pop out/up and take delivery either from the vehicle itself from an onboard cell or triggered by a signal back to HQ from the drone that it's on final approach. In lieu of those door stickers? Coincidentally I'd REALLY prefer a text I could take directly to UPS today to get my package rather than have to swing by my apartment to snag the notice and then, if I still...
