If you hit a micro-burst (sudden change in air speed) you will get blown off and fall to your death. Having a drone deliver your bread would be more convenient. Flying into a house at a hundred miles per hour would hurt. A bird strike would hurt. You think you'll see power lines at that speed? Ensure you have a backup fuel gauge.

An external hard drive and a boot USB and you can copy everything for examination later. That's a rather powerful exemption from copyright laws, letting the police make trillions of dollars (RIAA accounting) in copies, with no oversight at all. I would think those copies would count as expropriation of assets if they keep them.

Comment The secret to radio bandwidth (Score 1) 64

The key technology we need to unlock massive amounts of radio spectrum is directional radio links. Then you can have thousands of devices talking on the same frequency at the same time in the same area, without any interference. It's like how you can have dozens of billboards along the highway, without drowning each other out. You just look at the signal source you want to hear and ignore the rest.
