Even if flash is "officially" killed, Google will still index it. Pages dependent upon Flash for their main content will take a quality hit (actually they already are), hence a rank loss

  Android doesn't support it, and if you cant render content for that platform, well you just lose the ability to meet the needs of the user (or a major percentage of them).

"Some have worried drones could be used to leer at unsuspecting beachgoers or to see inside the homes lining the shore.

The wide angle lenses on the majority of prosumer/consumer devices make concerns over privacy ridiculous. And finally it's not a drone unless it's flying autonomously. Here it's a quadcopter with FPV video.
