If you thought drone racers simply rolled up to an event, grabbed an RC toy out of their trunk, and lined up to race, you’ve got a lot to learn. We popped by the US National Drone Racing Championships, recently held in New York, and asked one of the competing teams to show us what it takes to compete.
“Take it down before I get in trouble,” 23-year-old Darran Anderson reportedly commented on a video of him in his BMW cutting through traffic on New York’s Long Island Expressway. That didn’t really work out for him.

I recently had the opportunity to take my Hummer to New York City. This was a highly unusual experience, and it felt a lot like showing up at the dog park with an elephant. First, you want to play with everyone else. But then, you realize you might accidentally crush them.
Sergio Aguirre is weak, pale. Sometimes he fumbles for words, and it’s not because English isn’t his first language. He’d been on a hunger strike, and hadn’t had anything besides water and tea in four days.
Uber is, for once, taking the high road. The ride-sharing service says it will temporarily cap charging out the nose at peak traveling times during the massive snow storm that's descending on the East Coast. And what money it will make it's donating to charity.

It's been fifteen years since the last Checker cab operated in New York City, and I think the joke has gone on long enough. I don't care how it's going to be done, but the Checker cab should come back in service.

Two guys were arrested on Monday for flying a drone at an NYPD helicopter. It now sounds like it was the cops who flew their chopper at the drone.
"He was driving 70 to 80 miles per hour, and the trailer was waiting for the light..."
