@Caleb: I recently found myself in need of a portable system for writing while I travel...
The "Notes" app that comes with the iPad is rudimentary to say the least (although I do still use it on occasion).
But for what you want to do, I would totally recomment the Notes Plus app. Thsi is $8.99 from the iPad store and worth every penny. You can type, or use your finger to write cursive (there's also an optional handwriting to text add-in). You can select existing text and change the size, color, font... You can include multiple audio notes on each page. You can draw shapes with your finger and the app will detect whether you are drawing a triangle or a circle or square / rectangle and straignten up the lines and turn it into a resizable object.
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.
