Yes... for certain values of A and B. If you're delivering to a business in a building with a helicopter port. Delivering to a front porch is entirely different. Then there's the matter of how many will be in the air... maybe Amazon only has a few for "important" immediate deliveries that people are paying a lot extra for, but then if Amazon does it, how many other companies will be allowed to do it?
How many drones can you allow in the air? Like segways... might be OK if a few people used them, but if everybody did, then it could be really bad.
What happens when a motor fails? When a wind gust between buildings causes one to smash into the side of a building? When it crashes into heavy traffic (automotive, pedestrian, or otherwise)?
I'm a big fan of the Golden Rule ("Do unto others..."), but, to me, a corollary is also "What if everybody did it?" That's the question, IMO.
We're past the time when computers are already obsolete by the time you're walking out of the store with them. I don't have a problem with that.
Not being a heavy gamer, I've had the same core PC (updated disk and graphics is all) for now 10 years. I have bought newer ones for the family, but even the worst new computer is better than the one I still use, and that one is still quite good.
Unless you're a hard-core gamer, computers should last LONG time for your average user.
I love this kind of fanboyism. My platform isn't quite as shitty as yours. Great.
It's like politics and religion.
Most of the websites (and db servers) I've created for my company are Ubuntu Server... I don't deal with heavy security implications because they are all internally facing, although the ports are locked up and we haven't had any problems, and while I don't pay that much attention, I haven't heard of Ubuntu Server being any less secure than other linux distributions.
No X Server, go gui at all, and no need for one.
