Google's balloon-based internet dream: loon or loony?

  1. With what Google did with the Google cars does anyone really doubt that this isn’t a way they are looking to grow the Google/NSA spy grid. Using wifi could they look into your houses and watch you picking your nose or whatever else you do at home. We know the kinect system can not only tell where you are in your house but that it can see what you are doing anywhere in your house.

  2. This comment: We have done something similar at Aerohive with our “Wi-drone” project. Basically a custom-built drone with an AP attached. Same goal of providing Wi-Fi in difficult-to-reach areas, such as for first responders in disaster zones. Here’s the blog we ran last week (6/10/13) that shows photos of the drone in flight, and talks about the project. Pretty cool.
