I'm still wondering if the drone would be smart enough to land on pavement,
Rats. I was so looking forward to telling it, "Thanks. Now get off my lawn..."
Believe it or not, I'm still using Ubuntu 10.04.4 LTS, and I keep receiving kernel (currently 2.6.32-52-generic) updates along with libc libraries and other basic stuff.

In theory, your pronouncement would seem correct. However, I've just tried to set up Amazon Instant Video and it does not work in Firefox 20 on Lucid Lynx 10.04. It throws up a progress bar which ends with an error message that my version of Adobe Flash is not up to date (not true!). I'm glad I tried with a "free" video (I was charged $0.00). Try before you buy.
I had unblocked all scripting, btw. When I tried the help button, it referred me to a page that explained why Chrome (-ium?) won't work on Linux and to try Firefox! Head asplodes...

I don't know the mechanism that forms them but black holes that spin opposite to their accretion disks are called retrograde.
Fear not. If you don't mind editing about:config, you can change the default from Google to any other you choose. I like www.duckduck.go for the privacy aspect, but it lacks the comprehensiveness of the big G, Y, or B. Like you, I don't want google hoovering up anything I type in the URL bar.
Detailed maps of valuable deposits would be proprietary, I should think. The US Geological Survey does provide maps of mineral resources.
