Facebook and Google getting into the drone market.  Not surprising.  Does Amazon already own a drone company, or do they just plan to buy from the market?

How high can a drone ("atmospheric satellite") fly without interfering with aviation or regulatory issues? At that altitude, how wide a geographical area would receive WiFi coverage? It sounds like this technology would be best for adding coverage to a specific remote location but not for adding coverage to a continuous large area. I see the drone can prove routing and connecting capabilities between devices within a remote area but how does the drone connect to the world wide internet?

We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
