    Facebook wants to use the Oculus to create more social networking. For example, using the Oculus so students can gather in a classroom while not physically being there.

    what a stupid idea. that can already be done with a webcam, why would people want VR?
    VR is more environments where 3d immersion is useful. What a typically stupid shit Zuckershit idea. This is what happens when you give stupid people too much money. This is why kickstarter mmorpgs are not always a good idea.

    i don't see what's so bad about this.

    now, as opposed to being run by some rinky dink company that might run out of money any moment, and not be able to make a good product, it's made by a company who definitely can finish the project, and keep improving on the product. an IT company, at that.

    this is good news.

    edit: wow, so much nerdrage across the internet. delicious

    I don't trust their spyware. Facebook just wants money and personal information. The occulus rift gives them both.

    The problem with having a productbase that doesn't create revenue is that if you strap it together with products that potentially could, its quite possible to get a complete failure.
    Anything fb buys will have their webpage canibalize every aspect of it, that it can. This way the in all honesty pretty useless webpage keeps barely afloat for another while and everything else fb buys will turn into crap that is just as useless as the website.

    Apple should have bought it. That would have been an obvious win win...

    Stay frosty.

    Suddenly, government database everyone's eyes!
    On nights like tonight when no one's around, I turn off the lights, and I float off the ground.

    And I smile like I used to when you were around.

    it's nice to hate on things. Especially people with way too much wealth/money? Especially Zuckerberg because you may have read his background. When he was making Facebook he was also telling everyone how superior he felt that he had sucked in so many users even though none of them knew him. He felt like he was raping the privates of a lot of Harvard college girls. So the sooner he is hypothetically eliminated, the better?
