What if PSVR doesn't make VR mainstream?

This has absolutely been my experience: "VR is still searching for its killer app, but it’s a weird situation because it isn’t like VR isn’t impressive in its current form. It will absolutely wow almost anyone who tries on a headset, and yet there’s a big gulf between impressing those who try it out and getting people to buy VR and begin using it on a regular basis."

My Gear VR has been on about 20 heads and only one of those people has expressed interest in owning a VR rig. If Sony fails to make VR mainstream then I think we're in for a long haul to get it there. Daydream won't do it. Consoles getting goggles next year won't do it. Ready Player One the movie is still too far away to help.
PlayStation VR comes out in less than three weeks, and will be the third major VR release this year. But what's it going to take to make VR catch on with the mainstream public?

Hulu orders two series in virtual reality

This fall the Hulu apps on Gear and Rift are going to have two new series exclusive to the apps. There will be a 10-episode news show, The Big Picture: News in Virtual Reality, and a 5-episode scripted comedy, Virtually Mike and Nora.

"'We think really hard what stories lend themselves to virtual reality,' he said. Videos that can convey a sense of scale or scope are especially suited for VR, he explained. For example, one of the first episodes will feature a report about a the vast Dadaab refugee camp in Northern Kenya."

I guess I should re-install Hulu.

I've seen enough complaints about Allo and for a first release, I don't think the complaints are necessary. We all know Google has entered a mature market that is filled with competition, but if you look at the competition—Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp, Telegram, iMessage etc.— did they become instant successes on their first release? Of course not. These companies took users' feedback and improved with every update. That's exactly what we should expect from Allo: improvement with every update. It's unfair to compare products that have been improved upon, with products that were just newly released.

Now, if you're trying to understand Google's strategy for messaging, then you have a problem because there is no clear-cut strategy. At this point in time, not one company has solved the messaging issue. Sure we have some solid messaging clients, but the problem is they all use different technologies. For example, if you want to use Facebook Messenger and your friend wants to use WhatsApp, there's no way that both of you can use the app you desire to communicate with each other. Google is trying many strategies because there is no interoperability when it comes to messaging on multiple platforms. SMS is a ubiquitous platform, but the issue is that it's severely limited when compared to modern messaging apps.

The solution? RCS¹, a next-generation SMS standard. However, Rich Communication Services (RCS) requires carrier implementation. As The Verge² points out, even if there is wide adoption of RCS, there's no assurance that carriers won't mess it up with "—high prices or competing, incompatible features". This is why Google acquired Jibe. According to Google³, "Jibe is a leading provider of RCS services and they’ll continue helping carriers easily deploy RCS to their users." Google's end goal is to make sure that there is no fragmentation with RCS across carriers and platforms. However, Google understands that deploying RCS will take time and collaboration with the wireless industry.

Here's where Allo, Hangouts, Google Messenger and all other messaging apps come into play. For now, we'll just focus on Google. All three of Google's messaging apps are "fillers" until RCS is fully deployed. Each one targets a different kind of user⁴. Allo is consumer driven and targets emerging markets and Google's current market of users looking for an instant messaging app⁴. Hangouts is being repositioned towards enterprise, with Google hoping that existing non-business users will switch over to Allo and Duo. Finally, Google Messenger is Google's gateway to SMS and (in the future) RCS.

Since there is no clear-cut messaging solution available (yet), users should use the messaging apps that work for them. Notice how I said messaging apps with an "s". That's because you may just have to use multiple apps to communicate with friends, family, and co-workers who, individually, use their own set of distinct messaging apps.

Pros: Huge space and Publixs is across the street. Cons: Silverfish, ants, giant roaches, giant spiders, small roaches, centipedes, huge gaps between the wall and floor (they can crawl right in) no working Air Conditioning at all...it just runs and runs and doesn't cool the apartment at all. Trash is everywhere, broken bottles, condoms, etc. Animal feces is everywhere , mail boxes are faulty, black mold in the bathrooms & vents. I complained about 5 times and they painted over it lol. Uncaring staff, uncaring management, uncaring maintenance crew. The pool is closed , the front gate doesn't work, the trash velvet is 99.00( it's forced on you) a month and they only come on occasion. Random weird pricing all the time, very expensive pet fee and no real amenities for pets to justify this. Did I mention my AC is faulty. I love the location & been here for awhile but the property has seen better days. It was better when the previous owners still had the property.
