    some excerpts from the article:

    The use of drones in the U.S. by law enforcement and other government agencies has privacy advocates on edge.

    "Today if you have an iPhone or an Android, you basically have an autopilot in your pocket. You're just running the wrong app," said Chris Anderson, editor-in-chief of Wired magazine and founder of DIY Drones, an online community and company that sells drone kits and parts.
