If I booby trap my house to kill intruders, is that autonomous?
When drones are outlawed, only outlaws will have drones.
The govt is afraid of drones in the public hands - it's out of their control.
Then there was the guy who would take drone footage of real-estate for free, then charge a whopping fee for editing.
I love the late day sun in the Summer. In Winter, dark is dark, who cares.
Maybe you are a fine example of a manager. I've been in a couple of positions where I was asked for estimates and the managers thought they were too high and threw a dart at the calendar. Turned out my estimates were correct. Time to leave.
For me, it happened in 1968. I had just started a 3 year curriculum for computers. Started out with FORTRAN 44 on a teletype connected to an IBM 360. Within a month all of us (students) had outpaced the teacher's knowledge. From there it was a matter of reading the manuals we could get our hands on and as much lab time as we could fit in.
We love their adult programs. Alcohol, live music, demos, lectures, activities, and the museum is open for strolling.
+1 for Lightroom. I manage over 50,000 photos taken over the last 17 years and I can find images very quickly. I think a task like this would be difficult without a database backed approach but that, of course, comes with trade-offs. Of course LR can write out any meta-data changes to the image files or an XMP file. I used to be an Adobe fanboi but with their new subscription model, not so much. I still think LR is the best tool out there.
I use Adblocker Plus and it works wonders. It eliminates tons of crap. However, some site ads still get through. I'm assuming that the hosting site has directly incorporated a sponsor's ad into their site structure, thereby bypassing Adblocker's filter. This works because the site owner now has a stake in not pissing off their readers and will only incorporate non-intrusive ads in their site. This is exactly the opposite of what DoubleClick does.
Okay, so please enlighten those of us who don't understand the difference on how these RC "toys" are not drones?
- Requires line of sight control.
- May have a camera+recorder, but you cannot see the camera output in real time.
- May require low level control of pitch/roll/yaw
- You control it by looking at the toy in the sky.
- Can fly out of line of sight.
- Transmits video in real time.
- Can accept high level commands, such as position and heading, and handles pitch/roll/yaw itself.
- You control it by looking at the video.
I think your categorization is somewhat useful, but more and more "toys" are including the capabilities you put under "drone".
The word "drone" has fallen into the category of common usage. People know what you're talking about when you say drone but you get a puzzled look when you say quad-copter. The problem is the military has dibs on the word drone and it's not a pretty one. And with all the FAA brew-ha-ha I think they'll ultimately have to classify them by weight. A very lightweight drone is a toy.
Do you know if this applies to the Samsung 840 EVO series?
Denver - Century Link's high speed (I'm just talking about their ads for 40Mbs) coming to (maybe) your neighborhood. I was told by more than one CL rep that there are no plans to bring it to my neighborhood.
Meaningful Competition Drives Progress: a vibrant, diverse marketplace, with transparency in offerings, pricings, and policies will spur innovation, increase investment, and lower prices. Communities, residents, and businesses should have a meaningful choice in providers.
I don't see how a government takeover will enhance competition. Mostly it will increase the cost of cable TV, at least until some other group decides that watching prime time TV is a fundamental human right.
I have a TV antenna in the attic, let them raise the cable TV rates.
In Denver, CO we can choose between Century Link DSL (speeds suck) or Comcast (expensive and service sucks). If the city of Denver jumped in that would at least give us three choices. Competition is good, right?
