Fight against censorship & support the show: http://nixiepixel.com/go/sh... || There have been stories around the internet explaining the "positives" of Facebook buying out Oculus Rift VR. This is not one of those stories.

Two years later, with not a whole lot of warning, he sold the Oculus company to Facebook. Were we upset? Of course we were. Should we be? Let's find out.
