Oculus is dead to me if Facebook is involved, so separating and risking their destruction is worth it. Let’s roll the dice and see if we get lucky.


I'm sure there are a few Boomers out there, like me, that feel this stuff is happening faster than we can wrap our heads around. And in some respects, some of it can't come soon enough. We are definitely approaching some kind of convergence point. For now, I'll avoid the term "singularity".

Robert is correct, for the most part. Apple does need competition on that scale. It is still early in the tech as a whole. Not many are pleased with how Facebook handled the situation with Oculus. In my opinion, if the Feds attempt to break up Facebook, Zuckerburg will fight to retain Oculus under his control. I'm thinking he will sacrifice most of the properties under the FB banner, if push comes to shove. With Oculus, he can start over.

The spatial computing future is going to be a hodge-podge of companies that rumble along with propritary offerings. The rest of the independents will dart in and out using ISO web standards. Just like the internet operates today.


nothing is going to happen

Facebook, while the largest provider of some services, is not a monopoly in any of the services it provides
