I'm particularly annoyed by people who like to "play games" on the road with their GPS. If the GPS tells them it will take 12 hours to drive to Florida, for example, they have to "beat the GPS" and make it in 11. Or less.

So they drive like maniacs, and my life becomes part of their "game", and I'm gonna die because some nitwit needs to win against a computer.

I actually got unfriended by a couple of people on FB for expressing this opinion, so yes, you're correct, it's unpopular. But you're right.

Except... even with your stated exclusions on how they could be used, the drones could easily become like the Patriot Act. Good intentions that morph into Big Brother surveillance.

Mixed feelings on this. But you're not wrong.
