FLASH! Facebook Buys Oculus Rift

Today's shocker was that FB just paid TWO BILLION dollars for Oculus Rift, the virtual reality goggles that have been in the geek news for two years now, but don't yet have a shipping product.

Aside from one more proof that Mr. Zuckerberg has way more money than is good for anyone, I have no idea what this will mean for the virtual world population.  While I would gladly lay out some cash for greater immersion in Second Life, I have absolutely zero interest in Facebook or any other mainstream social network.

But I shan't rant about that, I'm just passing on the news.
