From the BBC:

The influential head of Google, Eric Schmidt, has called for civilian drone technology to be regulated, warning about privacy and security concerns.

Cheap miniature versions of the unmanned aircraft used by militaries could fall into the wrong hands, he told the UK’s Guardian newspaper.

Quarrelling neighbours, he suggested, might end up buzzing each other with private surveillance drones.

Read more on BBC. Strangely, I can’t find the report from The Guardian on their web site, although the Daily Mail also refers to it. Anyone have a link to the original?

In the meantime: pot, meet kettle.
