The daily STEW (Star-Telegram Editorial Writers): Texas is one of six states chosen by the Federal Aviation Administration to develop test sites for drones — a big step toward the day the pilot-less aircraft will be used by commercial businesses and private individuals. Do you have any worries about this technology?
No matter where they are made, they are part of our lives now ... I am only worried about the rogue user who will go beyond what they are made for. Linda Forsythe
I don’t have any more worries because we have so many products in our home that invade our privacy already.
As one who has had many software glitches and the need once to reinstall an operating system, yes I have a problem far beyond privacy. And hearing, “Whoops, sorry about that” after Pakistani and Afghani sorties so many times, the issue of operator judgment does come up. Gary R. Kromer
Any technology can be used for evil as well as good. While I’m sure there will be people who use them for the wrong purposes, the problem is that we were all born with an evil heart, not the technology. Timothy Fish
Yes, I do. Who is watching the computers — man? It seems that man keeps putting man out of work. Some things are just better left alone. Monica Fretwell Brown
I’ve been wondering if the UPS story wasn’t floated as a smokescreen/distraction. There are uses/implications for journalism, law enforcement, disaster rescuers, mapmakers and numerous other endeavors that boggle the mind. Rightfully, there are concerns, but there are also a bunch of gee-whiz possibilities. Kenneth Bunting
Who will do drug testing for the drones in Colorado?
It’s too complicated for the FAA. This is an organization famous for its inability to update its technology. Each state should handle the issue as it will.
