Mark Zuckerberg gives his verdict on Apple Vision Pro (here’s what he had to say)

In a rather surprising move, Meta’s CEO Mark Zuckerberg took directly to Instagram to compare his company’s newly launched VR headset Quest 3 with Apple’s very own Vision Pro headset. And as was expected, Zuckerberg praised Quest 3 and called it a far better headset than Vision Pro. He praised Quest 3’s lighter weight and wider field of view while also emphasizing on the flexibility of both physical hand controllers and hand tracking feature offered by the headset. Besides, he said that Vision Pro’s $3,499 price tag was way too expensive and Quest 3 offered more features and value at a much less price. It will be interesting to see whether Zuckerberg’s video will really help in in bolstering the sale of Quest 3.

Walmart wants to Challenge Amazon in Smart TV Space

There is a huge speculation across the media that the retail giant Walmart wants to buy budget TV maker Vizio for nearly $2 Bn. If the deal goes through then Walmart will become a direct competitor with Amazon and Roku, who currently dominate the budget TV space. Besides, the retail giant will get access to all the invaluable customer data collected by Vizio’s smart TV platform throughout the years. This will open up a new revenue stream in the form of personalized ads for Walmart. However, there is no surety that this deal will go through or not. That said, Walmart is known for aggressive acquisitions and acquiring Vizio is still very much a possibility.


X is allowing Terrorist groups like Hezbollah to use its paid services

In a shocking news, a leading watchdog organization the Tech Transparency Project has claimed in its report that terrorist groups including Hezbollah and Houthi groups have verified accounts with X. Having a verified account means that the terrorist organizations not only enjoy additional features but also enjoy greater online visibility on the X platform. Verification on X usually involves a review process and it is still not clear how did these organizations pass this process. However, X has so far not commented on this news report and, therefore, it cannot be said with surety that whether this report is true or not. However, if this report is indeed true then it raises the questions over X’s review process.
