Apparently this is not the case in Europe. Perhaps it will be now.
How unfortunate this happened.
Business decision(s) aside, it feels completely unnatural that such a cool, grassroots company sold out to a behemoth monstrosity like FB.
I would really like to see FB taken down a notch (putting it nicely), and this I am afraid will draw more people to it, as this tech is very compelling. I don't want to have to use FB to play with VR on this level. Perhaps I won't have to.
Maybe Oculus did need the help referred to in the article, but couldn't there have been another way? $2B would be hard to turn down, but (imho) they could have gotten there another way, and maybe surpassed it.
just my $0.02
You want to get rid of the TSA?
It's that simple. No, don't tell me you have to. You don't. You get enough people together and you all refuse to fly until the TSA is dismantled, and you know what'll happen? The airlines will get things changed in a hurry and the TSA will evaporate in a puff of invalid logic. It's that simple!
"Oh but it isn't and I have no choice and I need to fly and-"...
I can't agree with this more.
You can be guaranteed that if *we* all stopped flying to protest the TSA, the TSA would go away because the airlines would scream 'bloody murder'. You can also be guaranteed that this will never (absolutely never) happen, because people in this day & age put their (mostly petty -- a dying family member is not petty) needs before something as important and fundamental as this.
Wouldn't it be a good start if we all could pick a day (or a week, etc.) that no one booked a plane ticket in the name of TSA protest? It would send a message, at least, but wouldn't completely stop the craziness of what is happening today. When can we have a "no fly day"?
I always LOVED that car, and yes, I'm old enough for it to be the definitive Batmobile.
I'd love to pull a Bat-turn on I-10 one day.........again, but in that car rather than my own.
It's the definitive Batmobile to me also. I was old enough to still enjoy the (first rounds of) re-runs, and see it in an "antique" auto museum close to the area I grew up. I remember making a point of touching it, to see if it was a real car. Ah, the good old days.
All great ideas are controversial, or have been at one time.
