Bum deal. Not wasted money, they learned allot about what and how to pursue future tech. The guys in Skunk Works were nerds, in stealth project geeks, and now "romper room group". I am an old guy but the young kids will be shaping our future tech and how far we push it. Not so negative, eh.

When Puerto Rico got hit with the Hurricane last year... Google set up balloons with wireless network hot spots for free internet service that had solar cells....and helium to keep them up....
Much better than drones to me....

OH, I'm sure that SOME people will think they are the leader in everything.
I'll reserve my opinion about Facebook, that in most other commentaries and contexts, I would call Spacebook, but they aren't getting that credit in this forum.

OK! That clears it up. It's all cyber blah-blahs. At any rate thanks for the input :)

I wonder when the romper room crowd will realize that drones are toys not for use in many aviation applications

Although I love "the romper room crowd" lol, I'm not quite sure about drones not being used for aviation applications. But I trust that you mean that we don't have unmanned drones flying about in the guise of Passenger Jetliners, actually CARRYING passengers.
