We next share a personal story of recreational drone activity interfering with emergency response and offer solutions for the growing problem. Car manufacturers are introducing the new standard coming to automobiles in the USA – automatic emergency braking systems. And finally, we offer some ideas for how to stop social media sites from tracking you online. Enjoy the podcast and continue to ride…the waves of tech.

Drone interference Tehachapi Fire
Living in California comes with it’s own fair share of risk – earthquakes, drought, and fires. This year fires are tearing through the State causing unspeakable damage. People that are not helping the cause are recreational drone enthusiasts. A drone interfered with emergency response personnel fighting a fire only a few miles away from Steve’s house. Response was halted nearly 30 minutes. We offer solutions and ideas to begin curbing this chronic issue.
A big development is taking place in the automotive industry. Not since the airbag installation of the 1980s has there been a major movement to a standardized function in vehicles…until now. Car manufacturers in the USA have decided to press on with the development of automatic emergency braking (AEB) systems. These systems will include lasers, monitors, radars, and cameras to monitor road conditions in an attempt to reduce vehicular accidents and resulting deaths. Some systems are available as options right now on limited car series. Within the next few years, AEB will be the standard on all domestic cars and trucks.
