Re: M&A
@daniel This announcement is refreshing. I assmed Verizon had intentions to buy up old (and dying) internet companies after they purchased AOL and Yahoo :D

Pro tip for keeping your sky-based tech companies straight: this is Skyward.io, not Skyword.com or Skyward.com

Re: M&A
Drones and you said "vertically". Nice Pun if intended!

I think this is a good thing for them to get into. As part of IOT, if you want the drone industry to scale then having a robust wireless network and management is key.

M&A
Just like with its other acquistions, Verizon is branching out from just being a provider. The company knows in order to be successful it needs to be vertically integrated into some of these brand-new industries. IoT and drones make a lot of sense, moreso than Yahoo if you ask me.
