Whatever name you choose, I'm glad to hear that you will get good use out of the back come planting season. It's not a real truck if you don't occasionally have some sort of agricultural materials in the back. As a long-time pickup truck driver, I certainly understand the parking dilemma. Whenever I drive to downtown Portland, I just assume that I'm going to need to park a long ways away from where I need to be. Big cities are not big truck friendly. The trade offs are very worth it though. Especially where visibility is concerned. I like the idea of the back-up camera. I may have to look into one of those. Happy driving.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
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
