Then you just switch to internal navigation and let the drone go fully autonomous. A smuggler could launch the drone anywhere within the drone's flight range, from a moving vehicle, whatever.
This is a race that the guards aren't going to win. Of course, it's not like anyone's ever been able to stop contraband getting into a prison anyway.
Lay off the boot licking, sunshine. The heavy metals aren't good for your central nervous system.
What are they going to do, delete Eric Holder's account?
I don't think anyone was expecting the iPhone to be the staggering sensation it became.
I was wildly optimistic: I expected to see the iPhone get 25% of the smartphone market within five years.
Just because occupations have popped up to replace these lost jobs in the past doesn't mean that they will in the future.
Any job that can be done by a machine should be done by a machine. The upshot of labor-saving technology is lower costs of whatever goods or services are produced.
I see no reason to eschew technology because of your fear of your impending incompetence.
and what about the welfare for the people automated out of there jobs?
In 1900, about 80% of the people in the USA worked on farms. Today, it's more like 4% or less. They found other work.
As an American with some familiarity with history, it doesn't surprise me at all. Rulers and would-be rulers have always held the people in contempt, and you can see plenty of examples of it all around you there in Europe under the Fourth Reich.
What the court did, was provide a pretext for the government to pretend that the fourth amendment doesn't say what it says. A right remains a right, even when it is violated.

He called for a housing bubble as a remedy for the dot com bubble. He said that the internet would have no more impact than the fax machine. I could go on, but the point is proven.
Your top "thinkers" maintain that it is foolish to pay attention to mere evidence
Evidence abounds to support free markets. If you're too stupid to see it, that's your own problem.
a former libertarian
Bullshit. You were never a libertarian.
NYC public transit is the one thing most New Yorkers have in common and it makes for better citizens here.
My first impression was that you are an idiot, but I see now that you're actually a brilliant satirist. Well done!
Apparatchik from a tax-dependent transit agency is bad-mouthing private alternatives. HIs approval is neither sought nor required.
I've not been posting on Slashdot much this week, because I've been trying out Soylent News, which is using (and old version of) Slashcode (with some improvements) and lacks corporate overlords. It seems to have captured most of what I like about discussions in Slashdot, although is suffering slightly from not having nearly as many active users (50 or so comments is still the norm and it probably needs 100+ to be sustainable).
