While lots of present drone programs are very complex – and costly – inexpensive drones used for snooping, mapping, as well as attacks can turn the tables on world militaries by providing terrorists and less well-funded teams access to UAV modern technology.
A report by the Task 2049 Institute notes that China is hard at work on its own, less-expensive drone program that might wind up being marketed to various other players on the world. Iran, for instance, already sells simple drones to next-door neighbors in the Middle East, including Syria. An advanced program coming out of China would, at the very least, permit more powerful gadgets to percolate out to nations with less-developed UAV systems.
“ In whatever future problem circumstance we ’ re in five or 10 years from now, the proliferation of UAVs is visiting complex things for the UNITED STATE armed force, ” stated research fellow Ian Easton to TechNewsDaily. The market for unmanned drones can reach $ 89 billion over the next years.
While they could not be as powerful as US, European, or Japanese robot systems, these cheaper, Chinese drones can level the playing industry simply a bit when it involves unmanned combat in the future.

This tiny phone from ZTE/Softbank serves two purposes. When you press the button, it sends a message to a select group of family and friends informing them where you are. When you pull the ripcord, it sends out an alert. For something so simple, it looks like it could save a lot of lives.
Not only does LittleBigPlanet 2 come out today, but the FCC approved the merger between Comcast and NBC Universal. Will the two companies use their combined powers for good and not evil? A healthy skepticism may be in order.
The merger cleared the FCC with a 4-1 a few moments ago. The merger was initially announced in late 2009, but its approval was held up because the FCC wanted to ensure that the merger wouldnâ€™t wreak havoc with things like consumer choice when it comes to content consumption.
The Free Press, the watchdog group that criticized the FCC for passing only a â€œliteâ€ form of Net Neutrality, has similar misgivings with regard to the merger.
Todayâ€™s decision by the FCC represents a failure of the agency to live up to its own public interest mandate, as well as Barack Obamaâ€™s promise to promote media diversity and prevent excessive media concentration. This deal will give Comcast unprecedented control over both media content and the physical network that delivers it. The FCC has opened Pandoraâ€™s Box, and we can soon expect a whole new swarm of mega-mergers that will have dire consequences for media and the Internet.
Such power concentrated in the hands of a single company is deeply troubling. Access to information from a variety of independent sources is essential to an informed citizenry and a functioning democracy. While the FCC has adopted conditions, they are insufficient short-term or voluntary fixes that will fail to prevent permanent harm to competition, consumer choice and the future of the Internet. This deal will drive up cable and Internet costs for subscribers, while further eliminating diverse, independent media content that is already woefully lacking in the commercial media….
Today, Comcast has won the jackpot, and once again, it is the American people who will end up paying out.
Harsh words, to be sure.
Comcast is expected to host a press conference at 4pm ET to â€œto discuss the Federal Communications Commissionâ€™s and Department of Justiceâ€™s clearance of the Companyâ€™s joint venture with General Electric related to NBC Universal.â€ Weâ€™ll see if the company will address any of these concerns.
