and a smart person installs a switch and turns them off when they aren't in use.
A simple Google search for "non-nuclear EMP"...
and as an added bonus probably gets you added to several lists maintained by govt agencies, such as the no-fly list.
Could have probably said something similar about airplane travel a hundred years ago.
i believe what happens is that the "bad guys" set up a page containing free porn. but in order to view the porn you have to solve a captcha.
when horny teenager shows up to look at the porn, a bot goes out to the target site you want to compromise and grabs their captcha. you then present the captcha to the horny teenager and have them solve it for you. the bot then enters the info on the target site and just "proved" it was human and so now can do things that only humans are allowed to do. meanwhile the horny teenager is happily looking at the free porn and will probably come back the next day to solve another captcha for you.
If you reprogrammed the firmware so that all valid notes are verified, but that only counterfeits with your unique ultraviolet ink pattern are legitimate
but that makes it easier to pin you to other counterfeiting instances where they find those bills with your "signature" on them in a dozen different places. if you weren't using fancy counterfeit bills, then they might only be able to pin you to the place they caught you.
you would have a similar issue with the bluetooth dongle when they catch you using it. "hey we found those fancy bluetooth things in 3 other stores i bet this guy is responsible for those too!"
these people often are caught when they get greedy and attempt to repeat it over and over or do it for such a large sum of money that it doesn't go unnoticed.
i really don't care if i "change the world", i am in it to rule the world and programming allows me to exert more direct physical control over the world than any other profession.
i bought a garmin edge 810 this year. seems to work pretty well and can have cadence and heart rate monitors connected to it, and has some decent bike mounts. one complaint is that the software is targeted more towards training/working out than touring.
better battery life than my phone, though still needed to be charged nearly every day on a 2 week trip i took this summer, but it worked well with my solar panel charging it when i didn't have access to electricity.
another downside is it costs nearly the same as a smartphone. smartphones can take over most those functions, the only problem they have is battery life. if they can resolve the battery issues then i see them replacing many of these standalone devices.
The problem i have with using smart phones as an odometer/speedometer is battery life. I often camp while biking and don't have easy access to electricity to recharge my phone. Purpose-built devices usually had far better battery life. . however i recently added a small solar panel to my gear.
statistics per hour ridden/driven would be a better comparison.
most serious bicyclists have odometers.
i rode 850 miles this year. my current bicycle has over 5000 miles on it. i have never had an accident while on my bike that involved another person.
i have been in 3 minor accidents while riding in a car, though never while i was driving.
Baseball cap and hoodie.
1) you see someone with a baseball cap and hoodie you abort before you get within baseball bat range. if the drone can't recognize this then you just feed the video to a human prior to delivery, and they tell it to go or abort. you are going to need at least some humans to monitor the drones for problems anyway.
2) you avoid those neighborhoods in the future.
Please see "metallic mesh box".
kind of hard to pull the battery when you have to keep it in the box. hope you have a metallic mesh room for that. or a hammer...which mostly defeats the purpose of capturing it.
cameras on the drone?
the drones telemetry data, so they would know the exact time and location it went down. at the very least would make it easier to search for witnesses.
i expect it would also attempt to phone home when it detects something wrong, in order to make it easier to recover, so you would have to be very careful to block all signals it emits until you pull all the batteries. one mistake and they would know where you are.
well, good thing this is in australia!
having some of those delivered to me to the park might be nice...however the last thing i would want there is a textbook. especially because i would then have to lug it back home and may not have brought a bag to carry it in.
unless you can have the drone come back later to pick it back up...
that is why they will be equiped with a nerf dart gun to flush them out from under the tree.
