We're no safer for his withdrawing the paper, but at least any attacks can't be traced back to info provided by him (even if it's accessible elsewhere). I'm guessing this is a CYA move. Hopefully he shares any info on security flaws with people from the relevant organizations.
The first use of this might be for cargo ship convoys, instead of letting drones loose by themselves. I'm thinking that one or more new drone ships would tag along with a regular manned cargo ship, effectively increasing the capacity of the crew of the manned ship. The crew would be nearby for maintenance and emergencies. Remember that as with any new technology it would be phased in- the thousands of current cargo ships are not going to disappear overnight. If this technology is ever implemented, there will have to be a transitional phase where it coexists with current technology.

That actually sounds really awesome... Um, maybe I've had too much WoT...
Tesla is going to need a crazy amount of battery packs
Lucky they don't need a gigacrazy amount of battery packs, they'd have to build a super-duper-gigafactory.
And if you can't even google a list of google glass apps, then I doubt you can even formulate a use case.
Maybe that will be the first thing he does on them.
I wouldn't be surprised if that is the first action take by most people when first using their new Google Glasses.
I think the reasoning goes like this:
Step 1: Have contractor establish a searchable database of license plates, with the times and locations where they were spotted by traffic cameras and other sources.
Step 2: ?
Step 3: Contractor profit (and kickbacks)!
I'm gong to get a new bumper sticker which will read:

A non-vegetarian veterinarian is a job where you can still eat when your customers don't pay you.
most young people not having a clue and assuming astrology = astronomy.
I find this only slightly less depressing.
I think they could put this new super large particle collider in the whitespace left by Beta.
And that gets a title as Massive asteroid impacts Mars?
Only after a contractor converted the dimensions to metric.
People complained loudly to Microsoft regarding the all-caps of Visual Studio 2012/13 and Office 2013 during their pre-releases. What happened? They remained there, shouting back at the user in the finals.
I have mixed case menus in Visual Studio 2012. Download VSCommands for Visual Studio 2012 or 2013 from the MSDN Visual Studio Gallery to fix the all caps problem. Somebody at MS was listening about this problem (or their own developers got sick of all caps).
I took this to mean they want to keep the design of the optics secret.
Yes. How else will the little man in there know when to do my bidding?
