Passwords would be fine, if we were allowed to use easily remembered pass phases. Instead we're still often forced to use short passwords (8-12 characters) that consist of upper case + lower case + digit + non-alphanumeric characters.

I have an AR Drone 2, and the standard battery lasts for maximum 12 minutes (1000 mAh). I've ordered a new battery that holds 1500 mAh. Looking forward to see if it lasts for 18 minutes.

How much damage can one do with that? Seems easier to sneak up close and hide in a bush while cracking in to someones network using a laptop.

To thine own self be true. (If not that, at least make some money.)
