I'd just buy all the cool things I want. Then burn the rest on livestream.

Huge quantities of money does have an appeal for the kinds of things I could do with it. Mostly right now I just want to be rich because I think financial security will make me feel a lot safer about where I am...
Yeah, but when you are in a position where you can sell out for two billion dollars, money isn't ever going to be a concern anyways.

Honestly, that why I am RAGING about this. Yes, two billion is a ton of money, but if someone is offering to buy you out for two billion, more money is kind of superfluous by that point.

Still, it could be worse I suppose. It could have been bought by EA.

Neither do I. Its not like its cancelled or they gave it away to EA and/or Activision for several billion. That would've been obvious in its consequence.

It's a cool toy, and we're all kids at heart.

I'm not exempt, I thought it was awesome, but I didn't puff it up as the Second Cumming of Jesus or something to make it seem like anything more than just a high-tech toy.

And Facebook is where good things go to die. Or spawn horrific things, like Farmville. They're like EA, but for the Internet. Bug-ridden, horrible business practices, and ads out the wazoo RIGHT INTO YOUR EYEBALL.

Ew.
Someone probably would still call it holy if it didn't dry up.

You know, with John Carmack at the helm theres still some redemption on this, that guy isn't going to let Oculus be plowed under easy.
Facebook needs to find new outlets, markets keep evolving so acquisitions come and go. This is probably the strangest one yet as these are vastly separate markets but hey, maybe Mark Zuckerberg felt generous and really wanted to see this blossom. The biggest push i seen from Facebook on hardware was that lame Facebook Button on phones or the oh so meh The Facebook Phone.

And think of this, Google has literally branched out everywhere on markets, why not Facebook? Why should we have only one behemoth? This isn't EA which strips all the joy out of a studio till it burns down. This isn't Yahoo where Mayer's pockets are for the lulls and just buys for the software and fires everybody This is Facebook. Facebook has kept their acquired companies alive for a while and integrated alot of their tech within their systems, they see money somewhere in this and i expect something good will come out of this. A parent company with alot of muscle can definitely accelerate development for Oculus and hell, this can be a sign that we will get a consumer version this year.

Hey, how do you do that thing that makes it so when you mouse over a word you get a text box? The BBC sheet I'm looking at isn't helping. Reveal your secrets damn you!

Acronym tags. Remove the asterisk in the below:

[*acronym=yourtexthere][/acronym]
Almost forgot: Thanks boss! I still love your avatar, even if I only get to see it when you fly out of the clouds to laser BBCode into my eyeballs.

I mouse'd over your entire response, hoping to find a hidden message.

I am disappoint, Gunin.
