  10. Sounds about right. FB did buy Oculus VR for $2 billion too. It might not have sold much to people that don't care about tech, but a couple of "killer apps" and adoption rates might skyrocket. Price is also a barrier to entry as it takes quite a bit of horsepower to render high fidelity visuals twice for 3d, but hardware is another thing that will eventually come down in price.
  11. I wonder if they will cancel him. Wiley accused of anti-semitism after Twitter rant https://www.nme.com/news/music/wiley-responds-to-antisemitism-accusations-israel-tweets-2714668

  13. "Diet, injections, and injunctions will combine, from a very early age, to produce the sort of character and the sort of beliefs that the authorities consider desirable, and any serious criticism of the powers that be will become psychologically impossible. Even if all are miserable, all will believe themselves happy, because the government will tell them that they are so." - Bertrand Russell “There will be, in the next generation or so, a pharmacological method of making people love their servitude, and producing dictatorship without tears, so to speak, producing a kind of painless concentration camp for entire societies, so that people will in fact have their liberties taken away from them, but will rather enjoy it, because they will be distracted from any desire to rebel by propaganda or brainwashing, or brainwashing enhanced by pharmacological methods. And this seems to be the final revolution” - Aldous Huxley Seems like it's going to plan and it's what they're doing to children that pisses me off. At least us older folks remember a time before this madness, but this could potentially be all children know if adults don't get their crap together. "What society does to its children, so will its children do to society." - Cicero
