    Drones will be big for private security firms supporting government service contracts, IMHO.  I don't mean military, CIA, NSA only - the market for police, corporate security, etc. is still wide open.

    This will potentially serve to make drones a ubiquitous face of Big Brother-style observation over time, perhaps rendering Obama's use of them as weapons which kill innocents and secretly chosen targets abroad as merely another flavor of an insecure presence and related possibilities that our society generally becomes inured to.
