Facebook's concept drones look crazy cool, your SSD is about to get way better, and pics of the new LG G4 (maybe). This is all the news and rumors you missed yesterday, all on BitStream.

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 drone has the wingspan comparable to a Boeing 767 but still weighs less than a car. But the real nuts-o idea is these things will fly for three months via solar power at 60,000-90,000 feet. This may be my absolute favorite drone. [TechCrunch]
