dangerousmeta!, the original new mexican miscellany, offering eclectic linkage since 1999.

Slate: Reuters/Ipsos poll shows 42 percent of Americans support private drone ban.

Seventy-one percent said drones should not be permitted to operate over the property of others, while 64 percent said they hope their neighbors won’t add drone flying to their list of weekend pursuits.” Folks want privacy, I understand that. Irresponsible operators are already flying over properties without warning or clearance.

On a side note, I just heard about a recent dismissed arrest. There’s a new use for “selfie sticks”. Pervs are going out to do ‘upskirt’ shots in public. Seems some courts feel that walking in public, there’s no expectation of privacy.  Wait for that one to hit the social channels (the media won’t react until Twitter does, anymore) ...

EOSHD: Canon 5DS takes a backwards step for video - severe rolling shutter, moire ...

Not every DSLR needs to have video ... this is a play for the high-resolution stills market, not a video play. This market *does* still exist. Studios. Landscape and architecture. Etc. Those who have dreamt of medium format, but didn’t have the green.

Hollywood Reporter: FAA Grants Additional Exemptions for Drone Use in Film/TV.

Meanwhile, the FAA continues to receive exemption requests faster than it can approve them, demonstrating the need for the agency to begin the rulemaking process and create regulations in order to allow for more widespread use of the technology, rather than regulating on a case by case basis.” Jes’ keepin’ an eye out.

Youtube: Auschwitz 70 - Drone shows Nazi concentration camp.

The only visual I’ve ever seen that really effectively illustrates the size of the place. Show this to any crazy deniers you come across. I detect a significant similarity to the buildings around Oak Ridge, TN during the Manhattan Project. Both: Industrial extinction.

Mashable: GoPro stock plummets after Apple granted patent for mounted cameras.

Pulling the rug out from under, if Apple decides to compete. GoPro is pretty mature at this point; it’s a big leap from nothing to marketshare for Apple. GoPro has lots of competition, none have knocked it off yet. Color me skeptical.
