DJI just made a weird but ultimately sensible announcement. The next firmware updates for all of its drone models will require users to log into the website for a "new application activation process". If you don't, DJI will turn your drone into a lame hunk of plastic that barely flies.
Image. Screenshot Microsoft held a big Surface event in Shanghai overnight. While the event was basically impossible to watch in America, with a broken liveblog and zero English livestreams, savvy viewers (and those fluent in Chinese) might have caught the big news.
