The problem is that the criminals will still have drones. And the media will still have them. And the police will still have them. And the terrorists will still have them. You just won't be able to have your own.
What makes me mad in this case is that the pilot is ruining it for everyone else. Every time an idiot does something like this, it's going to contribute to locking down the ability for everyone else to fly them.
The problem with frameworks is that they lower the end product to the common denominator. Instead of having an app for each platform that exploits the strengths of that platform, you end up with whatever you can manage to get to work on every platform. That works for simple apps like news websites maybe, but not when you want to integrate tightly with device hardware and how the established user base is used to interacting with their chosen platform.
A way to get "halfway there" and increase your security without having a separate password for every single site is to have passwords by security level. For all the crapware websites you have one password, for work use one password, then use frequently changed high security pass phrases for certain specific sites, like one for each major bank you use and one for each major email account, etc. You don't need a hundred passwords just because you have been forced to create useless profiles on low security sites.
This is easily solved with a one-time bond. Insurance companies work with secondary insurance all the time. If you're buying a $250,000 ticket, it's easy to throw on a $3000 one-time bond for space-travel related issues. People do the same type of thing all the time for international travel.
In other words, think of the bag the same way you think of a software buffer. Just because the buffer isn't full doesn't mean the flow of data isn't happening.
That won't help us when the Earth stops supporting life, or a mega disease wipes out everyone on earth. We really need to start planning to migrate away from a single source of failure for our species. Human exploration of Mars is the first logical step.
So we're going to win against the mega-corporations by outspending them? The top five companies in the US alone bring in 1.4 trillion USD/year in revenue. It would take them less than two minutes to match this new, larger goal.
It is WAY over valued.
Will they care? It all depends on the data being shared is in aggregate. I don't care if people know that the average person in my city walks a thousand steps a day, and that still has a lot of value for health care companies, and I'm happy to contribute to that. I *DO* care if they know the details about me *individually*. There is a big difference.
The outrageous price of prosthetics from traditional medical companies is due to inelasticity of demand (the medical insurance company usually pays for them, not the consumer, and fingers are important) and also willingness to pay (for the percentage copays, the patient is happy to pay their portion normally because fingers are important to have). This is an economics issue, folks, not a materials engineering issue.
That's because they don't understand what "inert substance" means...
You do need to hold your tongue and follow formalities, that is the whole point. We have thousands if years of experience as a species in how to communicate effectively. It involves watching what and how you say things, and following acceptable rules for communicating with other humans.
Nah, there are several articles showing the NSA already has monitoring equipment inside the corporate network of most of the major corporations in the US. It's probably easier, actually, to monitor people at work than to monitor them on a bunch of unrelated vpn endpoints.
This may sound silly, but it is also very important to report the issue to the device manufacturer, if you can. The FDA sets very strict rules on how companies have to handle feedback they receive from you, so your feedback will be taken very seriously. IANAL etc.
