On article Microsoft Pix aims to capture better people pictures (49 comments in total)
In reply to:

FBoneOne: I just wonder what's in it for Microsoft? Get gps coordinates of all pictures to send location relevant advertising in real time? Something does not add up, they must have a way to make money here that is not exactly obvious.

data mining is trending, anything from your phone is valuable. photo/art/drawing/augmented reality apps are capable of digitising your subject face features for facial recognition databases.

Nothing is free. You are trading all your logs, browsing history, search words, your mugshot, location, etc

Here we go. This drone asks for navigation lights, radar retro-reflector and ADS-B transponder. SIM card could be used as ID.

@fpvnoob
you have difficulty reading captions under those pictures?
you're ignoring safety regulations?
you're OK with false statements from manufacturers?

please crash your drone in the middle of a remote cornfield!
