wow who would have guessed people don’t want an internet camera and microphone owned by zuck in their house mashable.com/article/facebook-

@internetofshit Described by me as the Facebook Amstrad Emailer.
Old man who knows nothing about tech calls it again on stupid idea

@internetofshit generally, it just feels like video chat is not something average folks are excited about. Even in business, everyone turns the cameras off because thumbnail faces add little for most situations, and many already avoid voice calls, let alone video. People like that these mediums can provide some distance and separation, so who is going to pay for a Portal or Echo Show and lose that? Even if you're into it for some calls, that's what a smartphone or laptop does, and often better.

@karlrolson @internetofshit But then the funny thing is there's always someone walking through Costco Facetiming someone during the busiest time on a Saturday, slowing everyone down. 😄

@bbdd333 @internetofshit Yeah, that kind of stuff is why I stick to evenings on weird days for shopping. Nobody is in the 'co an hour before close on a rainy, cold Tuesday or Wednesday night. Don't even have to wait that long for a hot dog & soda.

@internetofshit Also fun: Zuck admits having made bad decisions — and then keeps the metaverse.

@internetofshit thank god, no more shitty adverts for this utter bilge.

@internetofshit I am not convinced that pivoting efforts towards AR glasses is the smartest idea

@jur0_o @internetofshit AR will be very useful if done right. But I'm not convinced Facebook will get it right.

@internetofshit oh great they can double down on the meta headsets no one wants

@internetofshit Great, now they need to figure out people do not want their glasses connected to fb either :)

@internetofshit The solution for a crappy product is, as always, to add more metaverse.
