Facebook's concept drones look amazing, your SSD is about to get much better, and Apple Watch apps start rolling out. Your BitStream news round-up awaits.
Facebook has plans for everything. Plans to build The Matrix. Plans to strap VR to your face. And plans to shoot internet lasers from the sky with drones. Let's talk about that last one for a second.
The image above is the latest render from the F8 conference of what Facebook's crazy drone tech will look like. Codenamed Aquila, this craft has the wingspan comparable to a Boeing 767 but still weighs less than a car. But the really bonkers idea is these things will fly for three months via solar power at 60,000-90,000 feet. [TechCrunch]
