Facebook Buying Drones
This just sounds strange. I’m not sure I’m buying it.
Check it out:
Facebook is reportedly in talks to buy Titan Aerospace. The company has designed a solar-powered drone that can stay airborne for up to five years.
Techcrunch cited an unnamed source putting the price of the deal at $60 million.
The report speculates that Facebook would use the drones to provide internet access the billions of people across the world who currently are not connected.
Facebook would start building 11,000 of the drones and first deploy the drones over Africa before moving on to other continents.
The deal would be much less than the $19 billion it shelled out to buy Whatsapp.
