Facebook to beam the Internet from the sky using lasers

Quote:
When your core business is essentially dependent on the Internet, it makes sense that you'd want everyone to have access to the Internet as well. Google has its Project Loon and Facebook has Internet.org. Of course, those are lofty goals, but the question is always "how". Unlike Google's balloons, Facebook will be using satellites, drones, and lasers. Yes, lasers. Mark Zuckerberg has just posted online, on his Facebook account no less, a teaser of what's to come, with lasers being shot from the sky to deliver the Internet, and Facebook, to everyone.

Will those lasers be on stun, or on kill?

I'd be more concerned for the people glued to Facebook.

Cursor beam doesn't move with arrow keys in text areas
I've experienced this on various websites, forums, etc.. where I'm typing into a text box. (Oddly it's working here just fine). Since I find it much faster to move the "beam" cursor around with the arrow keys (and CTRL+Arrow key to jump over whole words), I frequently use that instead of the...
