Mark Zuckerberg keeps loosing key executives including his number two to his billion dollar dumpster fire virtual world called Metaverse. I’m certainly not spending $1500 to find out if it’s worth it. It looks lame on YouTube, where did the 10 billion plus dollars go?

https://www.cnbc.com/2022/02/02/meta-reality-labs-reports-10-billion-loss.html

https://youtu.be/BesLDg6hGhc

Why does the Metaverse cost more than space exploration? Is anyone on this forum in the Metaverse and if so is there any Amigas in it? I always thought the Amiga would be better in the Underverse with the Lord Marshall.

Good choice of sponsorship for a video on that matter.
Very apt.

@MEGA_RJ_MICAL

I agree, I thought so too when I saw that Ad. Facebook just cut 11,000 jobs last week because of Zuckerberg’s Metaverse obsession. I’m not sure why he’s so obsessed with it. It looks worse than the Wii Wii. The Metaverse fantasyland is cutting hard into the stock price and company profits. Shareholders are not pleased. It makes our Amiga obsession look innocent in comparison.

This was and still is the right play for Meta.
The problem as I see it is in the execution and the comms.

On a side note: Most tech stocks are overvalued. It's just a shame that when shareholder dreams are dashed, its the employees that bear the brunt.

Also, you can get into the metaverse with a Quest 2 starting from $399 USD.

@agami

Have you tried the Metaverse or played around in it? If so did you see any Amigas there? Amiga computers I mean, not the other kind of Amigas.

NVIDIA Omniverse Platform looks better than the Metaverse actually.

And as I already mentioned, the Lord Marshall’s Underverse also looks better than the Metaverse. Unfortunately it’s a fictional universe.

"If so did you see any Amigas there? Amiga computers I mean, not the other kind of Amigas."

Excellent question.


"Amiga computers I mean"

Are there any other kind?

@agami

I agree, friend Agami,

the Metaverse is the right strategy for anyone interested in collecting data,
serving ads,
and exerting control.

I am too tired to delve into the whys and hows,
and anyway this merry bandwagon of nimrods would turn the discussion into benchmarks
and jerking off on ppc instruction sets in the space of a few posts.

It's also the most utterly wrong thing to ever happen to humankind, and oh god, it WILL happen.
My friends, if you thought Internet ruined the world and threw people into isolation,
and mental states such as newlight's, hotrod's or qbit's,
wait to see what the Metaverse will do.

The giants will screw up execution,
throwing disjointed teams and tons of money to it,
just like Microsoft did to Search,
just like Google did to Social.

And then, an underdog with a small dedicated team and a shoestring budget,
will come out of the blue and conquer the market,
and the next generation will be done for good.

LET'S SIT AT OUR THINLY FRAMED AROS WINDOWS AND WATCH IT ALL HAPPEN,
MY FRIEND



/m!!!!!!!!!

I meant this kind of other Amiga.

I did not mean this type of Amigas.

Eric did a nice job on those computer graphics. He’s one of the most talented artists in the Amiga community.

The designers of the Amiga gave it a perfect name.

Friend DiscreetFX,
I thank you for the offer from the true bottom of this aching heart of mine,
but I personally regard that book as being in the same league as the Necronomicon Ex Mortis.

HOWEVER!
I know a friend who might enjoy a copy.
Will you please keep it as I reach out to him?

Splendid Regards

MEGA R.J. MICAL
