1984 in 2007

By Michael J.W. Stickings

From the Globe: "Police officer Derek Charlton of Merseyside Police operates the force's new aerial surveillance drone in Liverpool, England, on Monday. The remote control helicopter, fitted with closed-circuit television cameras, will be used by officers to track criminals and record anti-social behaviour. The drones, which are almost silent when in use, are also fitted with night vision cameras, can be deployed to the air in less than three minutes, and provide instant high-quality images which can be transmitted to a support vehicle or to a control room."

In related news, Orwell was right.
