Web editor for 5 years, web producer for 10, business owner for 7. I've worked for a major gaming web site, a major game publisher, and a fairly well known cable TV network. At the moment I run my own business, and I do everything. Marketing, accounting, photography, videography, hiring, firing.

I have both a PS5 and an Xbox Series X. I wouldn’t call either "minimally designed". The Series X is short and fat. The PS5 is tall and thinner. Six of one, half a dozen of the other. In terms of placement, it really doesn’t matter. They both fit on top of my entertainment unit just fine.

Let’s just get rid of all reviews if we’re not going to accept negative ones. Only leaving up the positive reviews is really just review fraud – it’s no different than paying a bunch of people to post positive reviews of your product (in the hopes of overwhelming the negative reviews).
This "review bombing" nonsense is just cover for companies to allow themselves to only leave positive reviews up. People should be allowed to say they don’t like something if you’re going to have a review system at all – otherwise it’s just bad-faith marketing.

Sounds like a classic pump and dump scheme to me. Hard to believe the public at large was doing $2.7 billion in business per day on just one platform dealing in these imaginary "collectibles". Ebay does about that much per quarter and it is by far the largest site dealing in physical (aka actual, aka real) collectibles.
This reeks of a few people with money juicing the market to create FOMO among the public and then hoping it becomes self sustainable. Which, thankfully, it hasn’t. It warms my heart just a little bit to know that people aren’t quite this dumb.

I don’t doubt those who say the show sucked, but these quick cancellations are basically why I never watch any original series on Netflix. No point trying to get yourself invested in an extended story arc when it’s one or two seasons and done. It’s gotten to the point that whenever Netflix announces something, my first and really only reaction is "well, that’ll be canceled".
I bought both an Oculus Rift and an Oculust Quest. Not buying this thing. The Quest/Rift lineage is dead to me. Facebook doesn’t care about gaming at all; it’s all just about marketing and trying to sell us this stupid metaverse thing that’s already a meme and is only going to become moreso over time.
I’m pretty excited about PSVR 2, though.

Then I would just chat with them, you know, in real life.
Even if they’re far away, there’s Zoom, Teams, Facebook Messenger, etc. We have the tools to show people’s faces the way they actually look, in real-time, if that’s what you want.
And it would have been true if Kinect just hadn’t been such a dismal failure in the marketplace.
So that’s the hope this time too, I guess.

Meta is Facebook. It’s the same company.

Hey everyone! I’m going to entrust my most sensitive data to a company that publicly advertises it will hold my and many other people’s most sensitive data, thereby making it probably the most tempting target for hackers! That’s super smart, right?
What ever happened to the concept of security through obscurity?
