Here come the hysterics

http://www.smh.com.au/technology/tec...216-2ek6s.html

It has always amazed me how the mainstream press loves to create anxiety.

The headline instills the anxiety and the fact it's a toy seems to be an afterthought. Too many videos of military quality aircraft and not enough of the toys in todays US media. It will be interesting to see if the nanny state moves to "protect" us and eliminate this "threat" to privacy... hopefully this will die of silliness as it deserves. I wonder how we ever got along just reading news and not looking for sinister motives in your neighbors.

Simple solution just shoot it down.
Oh wait a minute we won't have guns anymore.

The government will have to shoot them down for us.
Oh wait, they are the government's drones.

Politicians know they can get get brownie points with the people by going after "drones". Watch though. Every anti-drone law passed will have an exception clause for government/police agencies. A lot of bullsh*t is coming this year. The Six Strikes deal with ISP's started this week. The 2nd Amendment is being villified. Internet taxes are on the way for online shopping. Etc.

We are but serfs on the king's land.

Poll is closed. The admin should post polls like this in the front page or something so we can vote.

Can anybody actually fly with zoom lenses? I thought the point of fisheye was because we can't turn our heads.
