What does the future of virtual reality hold?
With tech like Oculus, we may be nearing a new VR era. Yet the average consumer still can't picture the practical applications, much less stomach the cost.

Yes there are other services and yes they are also potential attack vectors. Of course they are "conscious" of security and privacy (at least we hope so) but that doesn't always make them less vulnerable.

So I am cautious -- call me paranoid if you like -- opening more holes in security is not a good thing no matter how you sugar coat it.

+Vance McAlister oh no doubt it's still a great stock especially if you've had it for the long haul. Unfortunately it was still a pretty dramatic drop yesterday. :( (Probably a good time to grab a few shares though.)

+Rob Go shareholders and brokerages do the projecting.I personally am glad that the majority of voting rights for Google aren't held by shareholders... That's when you get the really crummy stuff done in the name of higher share value.
