There are fixed wing and copter (usually quad-copter) drones. My grandson designs and builds both types. Limited in range and altitude unless he uses a directional control antenna (some sort of yagi-uda antenna) in which case the altitude and distance becomes quite remarkable. All of his drones are fitted with video cameras. He has some amazing footage. In any case, he is careful to adhere to FAA and other rules regarding the use of these devices for personal use.
He designs and builds all of the control electronics as well as hand constructs the drones themselves.
These publishers have to realize that if they are going to get paid for Google to link search results to their sites, then it should be ok for Google to charge them for including their sites on its search results. IE, you pay Google for including you, or you are left out. Yeah, and Google should charge double of what these idiots are asking...
Just get elected mayor or city council chairperson for a small town on a major highway and install a couple of speed cameras... Just dot your i's and cross your t's so you don't get busted like these bozos!
One could think that the FEC would have better things to do, like cleaning up the GOP's racist voter-id laws and voter intimidation policies, than to kick humorists in the nuts! Next to go? None Of The Above!
I used to drive through Texas to visit family in Mexico (Veracruz and Oaxaca) as from Chicago where I live it is a lot shorter a drive than through New Mexico. No more. I won't be driving through Texas on my way back from Mexico at least. So, they will losing a fair amount of my $$ for gas, food, lodging I would spend there on my trip. I hope others feel the same way - Texas has become a Sharia state in just too many ways.
Security is hard. Good security is really hard. Just ask Bruce Schneier. It costs money, and takes a lot of time and development resources to get it right. Car companies, and others, are pressured to get these products to market quickly, so security is given short shrift, to the detriment to their customers. At the least, they could provide an OFF switch to disable all remote internet or other wireless access other than the hardware key that the driver has to have on their person in order to get into or lock the vehicle. I think I will keep my '99 Camry until it falls apart. 250,000 miles and it still runs like a Swiss watch, burns no oil, and gets 25 city and 30+ mpg on the highway.
