RE: The Danger From The Likes Of Facebook

in LeoFinance11 days ago

The Oculus Quest 2 is a thing I would like to purchase at some point but the Facebook account requirement really puts me off. I know that they will harvest everything I do. I just hope that HTC will bring out a competitor even if I have to pay extra.

The metaverse should not be owned by anyone, it should be like a new utility open to everyone.

My hopes are that because it has been pretty much started in the open source world that through hacks and creativity It will become a platform like Linux.

For now I hope that anti trust and anti competitive charges will be brought against Facebook for the Quest.

Sort:  

I would think once they're so popular and affordable to be in every household there'll be a hack that one can use to circumvent the FB nonsense. Tinkerers love to mod stuff.

You could be right.

Or someone could just adopt something completely different and have FB drown as it pisses the world off.

I really hope that they have not damaged their competitor's profitability too badly and that by the end of the year we will see more headsets to democratise the space. I think HTC Vive will have a launch in the next few days.

Lol. FB drowning is the ideal result. I’ll dream with ya.

I have heard rumours that it has already been hacked to get rid of The Facebook but what we really need is more choices of headset.

Certainly that is what we need. Other companies to step up to the plate. Unfortunately, they are trying to play catch up. And ultimately, arent we just switching one centralized entity for another. The fact we have choices is good but what does it really get us without controlled accounts.

It wont be owned by anyone. However, is someone is controlling the gate, that makes it very powerful. And that is what I believe Facebook is seeking to do.
