Ishkur: Valter: Why would I go there? What would I buy?

VR headsets.

And, presumably, the high priced GPUs required to run them.


But I don't like VR.

"the store is designed to expose consumers to Meta's products, which you really have to experience to understand"

No, I really don't.

TappingTheVein: The "bet everything on the Metaverse" business plan doesn't seem to be a good idea. Selling the Oculus Quest 2 VR headset at a loss is not helping. Facebook/Meta can allow itself to burn billions but at some point someone needs to tell Zukerberg.

Don't tell him. Let him sink FB at the same time Musk is sinking Twatter.

The world will be a better place with both gone.

"Experience Experts?" "Customer Onboarding Station?" Is this all a joke? I don't even know what to say anymore.
