Either I'm getting old or the Apple headphones are getting a lot better. The Apple EarPods sound just as good to me as some of the more expensive headphone products I've had in the past -- including $500 + electrostatics. Also, they turn out to be quite durable -- a good thing when bicycling 20 + miles along side the beach.

I don't understand what there was to gain for their purchase another audio company -- unless it's purpose was to inherit a sub-culture (fan based) following or unique technology (patent) of some kind.

It's not rocket surgery. This FB deal will go down as one of the worst of all time, right behind MS' acquisition of Mojang.

Not so sure. Carmack is easily worth 2 billion for what he's done for the gaming community - spawning an amazing culture and ideals, game engines, FPS, and open source. But I'm a bit of a Carmack / Doom / Quake fanboy. My opinion is completely biased.

It has nothing to do with practicality or function. It is more about dependency. If they can make it so people are required to use VR in order to keep up with or communicate with others, the product will sell itself merely based on social and/or economic demand. This is how automobiles, computers and cell phones became popular and currently dominate. Sure, in the beginning they were only productive for an elite few but the impact and mass production forced everyone to follow or be left behind.

I'm all for it. The more people plugged into VR the more space I have outside to enjoy the real world.

Starting in elementary school, courses in Critical Thinking and Logic should be required in every curriculum.

Ryan Gordon is definitely one of my favorite gaming developer / programmer / advocates. He's a pillar of the gaming scene and a very nice person.

Microsoft published three games that I really enjoyed: Age of Empires, Rise of Nations (Gold) and Crimson Skies (PC).

What about those of us who prefer smaller phones like the iPhone 4? Are we forever without option -- Apple product wise?

What's your ideal screen size? Samsung makes the S5 mini.

Guys, I don't think Cutter thinks much of this, but I'm not sure.

Do you have a collection of Cutter posts hanging on your dimly lit basement walls?

The big difference is that the PayPal team were entrepreneurs looking to be important and looking to be rich. Notch is looking to just be a quiet guy that works on his hobbies.

He now has an enormous amount of money in which to do that, and I wouldn't be surprised to see him to something with it, but I think he'll be quietly funding from a distance.

Quietly funding innovative start-ups should provide the same results - helping people, creating new companies and creating new jobs.

Consider following the footsteps of the founding PayPal team: take the money, create new companies and new jobs; innovate to help people.

What's next? A keyboard and mouse to convert it into a PC? Consoles are one dimensional, skill-less and stupefying gaming devices.

The Pope, seriously? He'd sell out for fifteen bucks.

I realize you're trying to be funny, but the current Pope is quite awesome.

All negative comments are purely based on envy.

Congrats to Mr. Persson. Now please use that money to save the planet or at least help the humans living on it.
