I like how guys at boingboing put this:

1 Predator drone: $4.5 million

Intercepting video from the Predator drone’s unprotected communications link: $25.95″

Subverting technology is always way cheaper than creating it.

We can expect more (and bigger) things happen following this trend.

WSJ via boingboing.

Update: Looks like not only Predator UAVs are vulnerable. Most USA warplanes are.

Update 2: And ground robots
