After goofing around with it at the office last week, we decided to post a quick review of the AR Drone by Parrot. Since shooting the video, I also managed to fracture the Drone's cross-bar, which costs a reasonable $25 to replace. So, while it's not the cheapest or most durable gadget, it is a lot of fun, and definitely less expensive than some other flying hobbies--like building your own model plane from scratch (and then crashing it in the office).

I salute Ford for making some Ford Parts perform much better, like electronic technology, sensors, collision avoidance (automatic breaking), park assist, cruise control, and more to improved safety features.
It was an interesting interview. But I didn't like some parts of it but nonetheless it's okay.

Thanks for the feedback Sonicxtacy - We just posted Tuesday's interviews here.
