Thinking about the #visionpro, it occurred to me to look back at #SnowCrash, the novel where Neal Stephenson created what we now all think of as the #metaverse. Stephenson’s term for the character who wears a VisonPro-like device is “gargoyle”. His description of them is brutal including this: ““marking the user as belonging to a class that is at once above and far below human society.”

Mark me curious, but extremely cautious.

Does Apple’s Vision Pro Leaves Meta in the Dust?

“Mark #Zuckerberg will have to overindex on openness, and hang in tightly, if he wants his big #Metaverse bet to pay off.”

#Apple #Meta #VisionPro #Android

Text Shot: Instead of being the only major player with a mixed reality consumer device, Meta will now settle into a position akin to Android’s on mobile. In this case, Meta’s started first, with plenty of developer relationships in hand. But unlike Android, it doesn’t offer an operating system to all device manufacturers, something that may have to change.

“Zuck’s aspiration was always to be the Android option,” Josh Miller, an ex-Facebook product manager, told me. “He knew Apple was coming, so his best shot at success was being the operating system that all the other device manufacturers prefer since they can’t compete with Apple either.”

@davemark I have to agree with Zuck on this one, they have totally different approaches, and even the terms they use to describe what is essentially the same concept of #XR: Meta uses the term #Metaverse because they want it to be an interconnected space where users can get together and play/interact.
Apple uses the term #SpatialComputing as their focus so far is expand your computer use cases to a 3D interactive space - indicating that they see the platform as a next-gen computing experience.

#Apple#Event prediction.

Super high resolution, seamless UIX with slick 3D graphics have already beta tested on iPhone for years. #Apple #XR tech will not be restricted to #headsets. It will be also everywhere your phone is.

Mark my words. This is how #Apple will introduce their next big product category. AR has evolved to XR - Extreme Reality.

#Metaverse with goggles is a 1990s concept (Disney Quest anyone?)

#ExtremeReality makes sense when the world is already populated with iPhones.

The media is pronouncing the death of the #Metaverse.

I don't think it is dead. Anyone who's ever played an open world RPG with a VR headset can tell you that it's very alive.

But Meta's idea that we'd all be plugging into VR to do virtual meetings? I don't see that happening for a long, long time.

That's not to say it's "dead" -- just not feasible for now.

The metaverse was supposed to be the future of the internet. Is that dream now dead?
In February, Meta announced it was focusing on AI technology, which some in the industry took as a sign that Mark Zuckerberg is burying his dream of the metaverse.

Just when you think #Meta is moving away from the #Metaverse, no, they are not.

Meta claims that the Metaverse will contribute $45.3B to Canada's annual GDP by 2035.

Meanwhile, the Metaverse is costing Meta $13B a year to develop.

For good reason, they're flogging the Metaverse -- Meta is sinking lots of costs into it, and it will be horrible for them if the Metaverse doesn't pan out.

Meanwhile, the Fediverse has been developed at a fraction of the cost -- and it's already overtaken the Metaverse in terms of end user adoption.

A report released Tuesday by consulting firm
Deloitte, which the tech giant commissioned
last May, estimated the metaverse could
contribute between $45.3 billion and $85.5
billion to Canada’s annual GDP by 2035, making
up 1.3 per cent to 2.4 per cent of the country’s

Such stats are “not surprising,” said Kevin
Chan, Meta’s global director of policy programs,
in a media roundtable held in the metaverse

“There are a lot of interesting tech hubs in
Canada, in Toronto, and a lot of gaming hubs

You can find pretty distinct parallels between #ExpertSystems claims and discussions in the 1980s and the current generative #AI (and the #AGI, of course) claims today.

You can also find parallels between the discussion of virtual reality in the early 1990s and FB's ideas over the last few years around the #metaverse.

You don't need to have looked into too many of these cycles to become disillusioned with the entire idea of tech and tech-adjacent people predicting technology trends.
