I'd worry more...

there was a story saying that they had a brand new system which was just being made ready in time for the Olympics.

At least you can be sure they know what the bugs with the current system are.

Shield the GPS antennas

Couldn't they sort this problem out by shielding the underneath of the drone so that the GPS antennas can't receive signals from below (i.e. the ground) and only from above (i.e. space).

Speaking as a hard-line Christian nutcase....

I'm embarrassed that some people don't consider what they're really asking for. They think they're asking for porn to be blocked, but they're actually asking the Government to force their ISP to monitor all of their web activity and see that it fits the govt's list of what is acceptable.

Take that back 500+ years and there'd be no bible in English.
