I understand that the reports of the economy are bad but I also see (everyday) evidence that the American consumers are still buying. Perhaps, not as much or as often but still as long as companies offer new and innovative products there will be demand. Good luck Microchip I hope things improve.

You are right Frank. I don't want to jinx it. I hope to see better company reports as we go forward.

Careful there, it's not quite a double dip yet, although getting close. One concern is the self-fulfilling prophecy. Economics is 90% psychology, and recent events have not exactly boosted the confidence of consumers or businesses.

This will probably be a common theme in the industry. Looks like we are into the second dip.

Drones are, in essence, flying autonomous vehicles. Pros & cons surrounding drones today might well foreshadow the debate over the development of self-driving cars. In the context of a strongly regulated aviation industry, "self-flying" drones pose a fresh challenge. How safe is it to fly drones in different environments? Should drones be required for visual line of sight, as are piloted airplanes? Is the technology advancing faster than we can answer the questions it poses? Panelists: Chad Sweet, Director of Engineering, Qualcomm; Yannick Levy, VP Corporate Business Development, Parrot; Jim Williams, ex-FAA drone chief; Michael Drobac, Exec. Director, Small UAV Coalition; Moderator: Junko Yoshida, Chief Int'l Correspondent, EE Times
