Mark Zuckerberg thinks the Quest 3 is much better than the Vision Pro

Meta chief Mark Zuckerberg has posted his own review of Apple’s Vision Pro on Instagram, coming inexplicably for our jobs here at Engadget.

In a video shot direct from a Meta Quest 3 (oh of course), Zuckerberg didn’t mince his words. He said he expected the Quest to be the better value for most people, because it’s “like seven times less expensive” than the $3,500 Vision Pro. Eventually, he concluded that the Quest 3 was “the better product, period.”

Zuckerberg thinks the Quest is “a lot more comfortable,” noting that the headset’s field of view is wider and has a brighter display than the Vision Pro. He added that the Quest had a bigger library: Meta’s Quest, unlike the Vision Pro, has access to the YouTube and Xbox apps. And that’s definitely a fair criticism.

If anyone remembers the heyday of pirated movies on slow internet connections, you got to relive the variable video quality of yesteryear.

Walmart might buy budget TV maker Vizio. The rumored $2 billion deal would make Vizio a house brand for the retailer and would allow the company to compete directly in the affordable smart TV space currently dominated by Amazon and Roku. Vizio has been eyeing up buyers for years. It was nearly purchased by Chinese media conglomerate LeEco back in 2016, which was another $2 billion deal, but that fell through. If the purchase happens, Walmart would also have access to all of that sweet, sweet customer data collected by Vizio’s smart TV platform.

Since 1979, Arctic ice has shrunk by 1.35 million square miles and Antarctic ice is now at the lowest level since records began.
