wow, that was useless. some analyst predicts that people will use more space, therefore that the storage industry will provide it. ee times should be adding at least a little value to the PR from these firms: how will the higher density be achieved? are there any drawbacks (like lower BER especially when scaled by very large disks)?
Drones are, in essence, flying autonomous vehicles. Pros and 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? Join EE Times' Junko Yoshida as she moderates a panel of drone experts.
