So the Patriots are on top again. A bit of a boring low scoring game, Edelman was outstanding and the Gronk made the catch that set up the only touchdown in the game. Brady will be back next year, 30 is the new 42, ha, ha.
So while waiting for the game, I was sitting around munching out and daydreaming. The drone incidents going on at airports recently crossed my mind. It crossed my mind that a weaponized drone in the wrong hands could be a disaster. We are all familiar with huge drones like the "Predator" used by the American military. They cost millions and fire missals that take out the target and everything else close by, including civilians. But what about the new small drones fitted with something like a machine gun, A good quality one can be purchased for a grand, everyone and his dog seems to have one and machine guns seem to be as common in the states, as apple pie.
And then I thought, hell, there's no damned way someone else hasn't thought the same thing before. So I did a search and this article came up, right away.
We all know how reliable software is and it is impossible to hack it, right. The words of one of Leonard Cohen's songs comes to mine "The future, is murder". We can only hope the power centered egoist south of the border doesn't decide armed drones are cheaper than a wall, to get around budget approval. For all I know they are already there but the cameras haven't been replaced with machine guns yet.
