In this issues, all about drones…
They’re a bigger deal than you think.
Really!

Drones, drones, drones
If you hear the word “drone”, most of us think about flying small heli’s controlled by a simple remote control taking pictures and filming that cool scenery, mainly for personal use. Well, yes… but there is more out there than we think. 
The drone has been only a year or two old now and it will be interesting to see how this automated flying product will change airway traffic for traveling, shipping as well as personal guides to perform certain actions to increase comfort and gain time. Of course, capitalization will follow rapidly. And yes, military purposes are again, high the agenda.

Here’s a prediction I’ll make:
“THE DRONE WILL COVER THE GAP BETWEEN THE MOBILE PHONE AND VR/AUGMENTED REALITY.

We will replace our public interaction (currently social media) by a drone filming and monitoring our every move with build-in auto-post features. The phone will be even more personal and closer to use than ever before (close friends & family messaging + personal care/needs).
Here’s a first sign.

One of the downsides, for now, is fly time. Although that might be solved as well in the next few years. Solar power is huge (You Go Elon! Build that factory/Solar company, the world will need it) 
Here are some interesting articles about drones of what they are doing RIGHT NOW! And yes, i’ll buy one. I’m looking for a combination of this & this.

Trump & women
It’s insane how big this thing is getting, fighting against Trump. Obama took on the “Conspiracy theory” of Trump. Even Michelle Obama joined the force (right time, right person) and lots of cartoons (one and two) showed up on Twitter. This might influence his campaign. I actually hope it does. Trump isn’t a President, he’s a play-hard businessman. The kind you don’t want to make deals with.

The internet is the best thing that ever happened to me. Really! It helps me to better understand the world we live in and learn as much as I can, as fast as I can in order to be Creative with Intelligence as wide as the box can get. @Parafixio is my playground.
