Regarding the comment: 99% of it will suck, and will disappear. 1% of it will be awesome, and will make my life better. Hooray for the 1%!
I hope this turns out to be true! There are many Android apps (I don't own any iOS device) that I wish would simply vanish and stop overcrowding the Android market place. In this context, I would be happy to belong to the 1% but I would rather belong to the other 1% (of wealth holders!)... seems too distant at the moment!!

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.
