Google Drones On

This may all be innocent fun, but given Google's privacy track record, it seems kinds creepy. It seems that a Google employee (or the company, itself)  just bought a remote-controlled flying drone. Given all the spying that Google does, is this really the right PR move to make?

All I know is that folks in Redmond are looking up the sky wondering of Google will take pictures or drop something bad.

Is Google getting out of hand, or is your personal privacy worth sacrificing for the sake of better search? You tell me at dbarney@redmondmag.com.
