    Problem is that Facebook has messed up too many times, the leaks, the intrusive hidden programs watching us even when not on facebook, the censorship, no one wants them to have control. I hope meta dies off.

      A lot of pain and psychological warfare, enabling of sexuality. I still feel Facebook can make a comeback from what truly happened to us in childhood. Being programmed unconsciously to doomscroll was warfare on the mind. Life still is never miserable.

      Exactly. Google has everyone’s emails and people still trust them. Microsoft has all businesses information with office 365, Azure, Amazon has AWS and businesses and governments still trust them.
      But Facebook has a bad reputation on governance and privacy.

    Yeah they're ahead I feel like the next generation they should sell this dream to but right it's my sons generation and one above that is into VR. I feel they need to cater to kids for 5 or 10 years then get into this dream. My generation and the two above mine they're out of touch with electronics. Heck they can barely run Facebook lol they're also out of touch with their kids.

    I've never understood what a metaverse does that various other apps and sites don't already do. If I want to buy something, I go to that site. Centralizing literally everything into one digital service just adds a middleman. Some people talk about metaverses as if they're the future, but the way it's described honestly sounds like how someone from the 1980s would envision the future, not a modern tech user.

    I remember when I was getting really scared of how much VR is being pushed onto people when I was looking for a job and was going to an employment center. They had a program you could sign up for to get training and extra tips before getting a job where you'd go there like it's a classroom. One day we went in and they had VR headsets for us to practice jobs in the trades, like I did a simulation for being an electrician. It was really cool don't get me wrong, I just never saw a government owned employment center going to VR anytime soon.

    I find your excitement about the "Metaverse" very adorable. The disconnect from reality is dazzling.
    In no way, shape or form will theree EVER be a hyper-connected platform which supports a majority of applications and allows you to seamlessly transfer them from one application to the other. Thats because applications are self contained, and there is no universal standard as to how things like items, cosmetics, avatars and so on are handled.
    Creating such a platform would be an absolute gong-show of incompatibilities, overhead and disputes over things like item properties.
    Its the age old problem of Standards:
    *There are 14 different and competing standards for X*
    Some Dev Team: "WHAT! Ridiculous! We need to develop a unified standard for X that everyone will use!"
    *There are now 15 different and competing standards for X*

      @Luke Potts Except that isnt a reality in tech spaces or we'd all be writing code in a single set of highly specialised languages, using one specific set of libraries and there were no different in-use patterns that achieve the same overall thing (E.g. MVC and MVVM).
      Why is there 10+ different programming languages for scripting if one would suffice? Why are there Several Linux distros if one would suffice?

    If only Zuck had announced these plans two years ago when we were fully locked down no one was hoping to go back to anything resembling normality for 5+ years he could have sold a lot of people, onboarded partnerships with companies actually with the experience needed to effect his vision and investor money would have flown freely. Sadly he missed the boat on this; right now there's something much cooler than VR right now, it's simply called, R.

    I just cant see the "metaverse" really being more than a gimmick. I just see it as just the internet with extra steps and it cannot be a true metaverse if one company controls everything. I love VR but I don't think Meta is truly taking advantage of the unique possibilities VR has.

    The VR prediction of the 80ies, 3D picture technology (with vast standards for cameras and monitors), and recently oculus etc - they all FAILED - why?

  • chi11estpanda
    chi11estpanda 2 months ago +1

    It's an interesting viewpoint you have on this as it would seem as if maybe you're holding the two companies to a singular goal of dominance and what that dominance translates to in the metaverse. It's just my opinion and varying perspective that would venture to say, Meta is more focused on dominating delivery and adoption of AR in the sense of devices and how we consume content of the future. While Microsoft might have a gaming marketing approach and it still remains to be seen how the Metaverse will evolve and eventually gain mass adoption, the difference that needs to be noted and addressed, at least from my point of view, is that the two aren't actually competing per se. Whereas in an oversimplified explanation, Facebook is an ads-based company, where its greatest source of revenue is their ad network which gets its value from the social network platform and user data it collects to appeal to advertisers; while Microsoft, might also have its hands in it's own search engine and ad company or whatnot, but with it's Xbox line and acquisition of gaming studios, it's goal for revenue might be arguably about software sales, which shouldn't be surprising. You have a software company trying to dominate the metaverse in gaming sales while Facebook might be trying to dominate the metaverse by being the go to device provider for entry into the metaverse so that similar to how Google collects user date from it's use as a search engine, the use of Meta's devices to access the Metaverse will provide user data for Facebook to, in the future, retake its position in the advertising space by being able to 'control the billboard' everyone is driving by, sort of speak. So while Microsoft might outsell its gaming services or game downloads, Meta will be the one learning user preference and pushing the sales of games it learns that the users enjoys most in trying to keep users plugged into the Metaverse. So they're not going to be killing each other, if anything they'll be like 2 developing countries that will eventually get involved in global trade with one another where one is a nation of gamers and enterprise users while the other is a nation of common people that might use AR/VR casually and adopting AR/VR as a result of the growing popularity lead by the gamer/enterprise "nation".

    Great video and you are spot on. Microsoft as a company have been way ahead of others in alot of industrys. Look at slates which are now tablets. Phones as an example even when Windows mobile dropped to iPhone, the Windows phone 77/8/10 was way ahead of ios and android but just could not get a foot in. Even Cortana was ahead of Google now and Seri but again could not get a foot in the market.
    I definitely see a shift in Microsoft under its new leader and I do think Microsoft will lead in alot of this ga going forward especially business wide.
    It's interesting to see each company doing different things at the moment and personally I feel Apple could be the next big player to drop in value as I feel they are standing still I. Terms of the market apart from its own chips.
    We are definitely entertaining the new Tech age and I'm excited to see what is next.

    In the beginning there was Unix "talk" - a simple easy text interface to let you talk to someone else in real time.
    Then along came IRC and USENET. Then came along pagers and then SMS (cellphone text messaging). Then along came slack and zoom and webex and teams and a multitude of other platforms to allow both real time text messaging and audio/video conferencing.
    Now comes "meta" -- which seems to miss the entire point.
    All the previous systems allowed person-A to communicate with person-B, easily - in real time.
    How is the "metaverse" an improvement over what already exists? Who wants to run around in virtual "worlds" trying to find the person you need to talk to?!? LOL

  • Michael Ross
    Michael Ross 4 months ago

    Wow... this is so incisive. Microsoft really is positioned well to have an actual metaverse. The problem is, there needs to be a raison d'etre, besides the proposed idea by Facebook of simple socializing, to make it work. That's what made a 'fortnite metaverse' as envisioned by Epic possible - people showed up for the game first, and the other economic and social opportunities of a metaverse were enabled by that. The thing is Zuck basically tried to recreate VR chat, something that's been around for a while. But Microsoft can possibly tie some of its gaming and professional audiences together in a unified online metaverse... On the one side, it sounds like a privacy nightmare and depending on the implementation could be clunky and terrible. On the other hand, it also sounds like an inevitable convergence of platforms, functions, and social networks as these huge companies conglomerate and assimilate more and more online markets.

    The problem with the metaverse is that you have to take extra steps to participate in the community. You need a VR headset, special software, etc., etc., whereas Facebook and Twitter can be accessed from any device with a web browser, and it takes comparably little time to do anything on Facebook or Twitter. Liking or sharing a post is literally a fraction of a second.
    As someone who was once addicted to MMORPGs, I understand how incredibly addicting online communities can get, but as huge as World of Warcraft was in its heyday, it never reached the levels of Facebook or Twitter because you needed a computer capable of running the WoW client software, had to install said client software, etc. If the WoW community was as easy to access as Facebook and Twitter, and if WoW allowed significant actions to be made in far less time, then perhaps WoW would have produced numbers like Facebook and Twitter.
    Even if Facebook doesn't charge for the software (and they would be fools to do so), I don't believe it will be as popular as they think. Are they testing this with actual people to see how they respond?

    I feel, ever since VR technology was revolutionized, and the popularity of Ready Player One occurred, some companies are trying to create they’re own version of Oasis. VRChat so far, is the best representation of this. There are already big gaming and entertainment companies invested in VR gaming and there are plenty of headsets to choose from. Facebook was just late to the game, encountered a market already taken and staked by others, and Metaverse was executed poorly. Zuckerberg doesn’t deserve his fame and fortune, and it looks like his hubris is coming home to roost finally.

    I knew this video was bogus since Microsoft isn't even involved with the metaverse. MS has only talked about their video games being metaverses already but it was misunderstood. Now MS is working with Zuck to build Meta into a business solution, which is probably the right direction since there's very little interest in the metaverse from a majority of consumers, esp younger people who generally dictated what is popular in tech. This was a bad take. Only people who don't really follow gaming kept thinking that the Activision deal somehow meant they were making a metaverse. It made no sense, you guys were so caught up in the metaverse hype you thought everything revolved around it.

      Here's a radical idea: Metaverses are just a stupid idea and they're all going to die withing the next 3-5 years. I have nothing to base this on other than historical precedence: Most recently it was the NFTs in games - how well did that "revolution" go? But there's been plenty of other examples of grand ideas that were supposed to revolutionize the world, but ended up as a gimmick at best. Remember AR? Remember Google Glass? Remember 3D cinema? I remember Gabe saying about half of all games produced by now would be VR games. What happened to that? Hell, anyone remember IPv6? Does anything apart from torrent clients use that? It seems to me every couple of years or so some company or another tries to manufacture a "revolution", but it doesn't matter how much money you pour into it, if it sounds stupid, it most likely is stupid. And Metaverses of all kind just sound really stupid.

    Factory production lines already have more automated monitoring and testing than you could possibly imagine (unless you work in heavy industry), using technology that’s been around for at least a decade and with a waste cost (in components/products physically tested in ways they can no longer be sold) that is near negligible compared to the overall cost of production. And I’m not sure whether human customers would ever trust, for example, a fire suppression system that had only ever gone through virtual simulated testing.

So I thing its great that they are willing to spend that amount of money to push it forward. I don’t even care if they go bankrupt, they are the pioneers of a very important part of the tech world.

      @Madinogi Yeah but the worst things Microsoft did was when Gates was their CEO.

And all that while their platform was actually a huge pile of crap until Windows 2000. Bill Gates certainly is not a saint.

They used their power to push out other marketing competitors.
      So he has donated money? One of the richest people on the planet? Everyone who's a load of money donates to "humanitarian" and "charity" causes, because it makes them look so decent - and also allows them to evade taxes.

    Metaverse is just like flying cars...always a few years away from becoming a reality. All the trends we had towards a digitalization happened because the digital form factor had clear advantages over the physical/analogic counterpart were metaverse is just a video call with extra steps. VR itself has a lot of potential to media consumption, training (like welding or other techinical and dangerous stuff) and other specific tasks where a 3D enviroment can help. But even so is not going to be the big next step but ratter one more tool you can use.

    "microsoft isnt interested in locking you in to a single hardware" i'll believe that when they actually make their products work on other systems than windows and when their webpages works flawlessly on other browsers than their own. You might be right, that it's a shift they plan to make, but they haven't made that shift at all yet, and TEAMS is probably the worst example of microsoft opening up to other systems.
    a lot of microsoft products can be forced to work on a linux system, but it's not thanks to microsoft, but the linux community, let's hold our enthusiamsgasm over microsoft and wait and see if they actually do something that is even slightly close to what you explain, cause this i hear in the video is OVER glorification of a company that is build around locked in systems and law suits.
    EDIT: yeah, i had to get back to edit in some extra thoughts here, as i continued watching and saw more glorification, this time on bill gates and his "vision" of the future in 1995, these werent bill gates visions, if i remember correct it's been made public that bill gates literally stole the idea of "windows" the operating system and same with the vision of a future where people would carry devices around with them with these features.
    i mean, he isnt a bad business man, but remember he wasnt the one with these visions, he was the man that made a business out of someone elses visions.

      @PythonPlusPlus why would a group of people participating in a virtual world that's decentralized be fundamentally slower than in a centralized system? It's fundamentally no different than early multilayer games where one of the participants acted as a server and all the communication is between those participants. For many other applications such as cloud data storage, video streaming, etc, decentralization can actually be significantly faster since there could be more hosts in geographically closer regions and download bandwidth can be distributed across multiple hosts to download chunks of data in parallel. This is basically no different than torrent

      @igvc1876 You’re making a poor argument here. Dynamic webpages wouldn’t work in the 90s because computers weren’t fast enough, and the internet wasn’t mature enough.

      @Laszer271 I am willing to play along as the devil's advocate. AR/VR does have a future and legitimate uses as you suggest. Even the US Army thinks there's something to it, because they signed a multi-million dollar deal with Microsoft to supply the Army with AR headsets. As you say, VR/AR does make your work easier in some circumstances. Now, back to my argument: First, this is a niche. It's not like McDonalds will suddenly buy VR headsets for its employees because it makes locating a patty in the fridge faster. It's much cheaper to just train your employees on where to find patties. Secondly, this has nothing to do with metaverses. Improving the workflow of your employees does not necessitate them spending their every waking hour hooked up to a VR headset, even outside working hours. This is a consumer product we're talking about. And I really don't think it makes anyone's life significantly easier or better for the price it is offered at. And I'm talking not just the monetary price, but the investment if time, effort and sacrifice from not being aware of your surroundings, among other things. While I do believe these costs can be overcome, it will take decades before general public will accept that VR and metaverse are at a state where they are willing to dedicate a significant portion of their lives to it, and actually feel the benefit when compared to using traditional PCs and smartphones. As for Brain-Computer Interfaces, we're talking waaaay more than the next few decades. You'd be hard pressed to find enough people who'd be willing to have a hole drilled in their skull, just so they can control the light switch, or order pizza without reaching for their phone. Not to mention this tech isn't even in its infancy yet. The closest one: Neuralink, is barely a prototype, and all it does is it helps control the onset of some conditions, by zapping your brain. We've known zapping the brain helps control those conditions for decades now. Right now, Neuralink is just a portable version of an electric shock therapy. The thing about paralysis patients being able to control artificial limbs is in trial stages and it works with SOME patients, but even that is unreliable. It'll be many, many years before it is accepted for clinical purposes, and many more years before people even start considering having a piece of silicon replace a part of their brain to be a viable way to open their garage doors, as opposed to pressing one button on their remote.
      Look, I like to dream too, but jesus christ on a stick, let's be a little bit realistic here.

    • Laszer271
      Laszer271 4 months ago

      @Miłosz Skowroński I generally do agree with you but let's just play a devil's advocate for a second. Like it was stated in the video, the AR/VR may increase productivity for various tasks. Imagine you want to find a faulty machine in a warehouse. It would be much easier if the machine could let you know where it is. It could be also easier to inspect some processes in a factory where you not only see the machines working but also see its live statistics like temperature, tasks done per minute, daily downtime, etc.
      Such possibilities still requires huge developments not only in VR/AR technology but also IoT but it might be where such technology becomes really beneficial. From there might come more applications for users such as answering messages with your mind or checking estimated calories intake of the food you are eating. In the end this technology is likely to develop but it may take a lot of time as it may become attractive only when computer implants and brain-machine interfaces becomes commonplace.

    Various companies have come and gone for years that have been trying to create their "virtual worlds" for doing business. It is older than the public internet. There were even attempts during the dial-up BBS days. Each new iteration calls themselves new, and focuses on the promise of meeting and collaboration spaces. The problem is, that these VR worlds are not practical, nor desirable. It is a neat tech, that can be used for fun. That is why it succeeds for gaming.
    It worked, for a short time in the trade show business. With travel expenses being cut for a number of companies, attendance at trade shows was dropping. To combat this, a virtual trade show, complete with virtual vendor booths were brought into play. This should have been the ideal avenue for bringing VR into the business arena. But, these dropped VR tradeshows disappeared after a short time, because companies did not see enough benefit to the expense involved. Even during the COVID-19 shutdowns, when there should have been great opportunity for a resurgence, Virtual trade-shows and expos just followed a simple website scheme.
    The reality here is that the "metaverse" just isn't new. This is a model that has tried and failed many times over. The tech improves. Access speeds improve. Graphics improve. But it is still not a winning business model. AR has far more practical usage in business, but only in limited areas. VR is not a winning strategy for the office. Even Meta's own employees hate using it.
    Sorry Meta. I just can't get on board.

      @Kelly Christus TLDR: Sorry, I often use the language from the Federalist papers and conflate that with the Constitution itself. You are correct they are referred to a Jurisdictions, Artificial Persons, and Contractual Entities if I remember correctly.
      Full post: The Sovereign Citizen language has been oft misused by crazies living in the woods, but was originally the phrase meant to refer only to your inalienable rights as a human born of the earth. Jefferson quite liked the idea that each person was a sovereign state unto themselves and that the function of local Govt was to coordinate the wills in their area for like minded means to an end, and this structure could compound upward without requiring the direct intervention of the people...however, as we have seen demonstrated, greed and power know no honor or bounds and the will of the "Sovereign Individual" is ignored in favor of the will of the fictitious entity. I understand your apprehension to that language and the association it gets with the nutters who try to challenge Legal Jurisdiction on these basis...truth is, their non-sense starts from the very real arguments about Individual Sovereignty as evidenced in the dissentions of the Supreme Court in the time around the Founding of the Federal Reserve and again at each step where Corporations and Wealthy individuals are given in-equitable voice in government through campaign finance. The Constitution does not grant us Rights, it grants the Government power to protect and act on behalf of the people and frames the absolute hard boundaries that all subsequent law cannot infringe upon as well as the framework to enact/enforce laws and representatively tax the population. There is also a checks and balance system developed so that the hard boundaries can be examined and altered over time. The problem is many government decisions have negatively impacted the lives of regular everyday citizens and benefited the massively wealthy or corporations directly, and left us a broken 2 party system where the voice of the people is drowned out by beer commercials and cancel culture.

    Sims can be very useful or fun and so on, but (and yeah, I’m an old guy, but with plenty of imagination) I’ve never quite caught onto Zuckerberg’s manic enthusiasm for his meta verse. Man does not live with pixels alone, and if Facebook is a huge waste of time, just imagine…

    A key requirement for this metaverse is identity. That hasn't even been solved for the general internet. Proposing that a VR platform will be rolled out across multiple content platforms with unified identity and financials is ludicrous. It's so unrealistic that, like NFTs, only make sense to people who don't understand how the real world works.

    Very few people want to give up their vision of their surroundings, even temporarily, even in a safe environment. Vision is too essential to our being. Nobody will voluntarily put these on, which means businesses would have to incentivize people (too expensive) or compel people (which defeats the idea of innovation.)
    As for factory use, people trip and disable themselves in factories every day, with complete and perfect vision. Insurance companies are going to go bananas if they are asked to cover a hazardous activity and workers' vision isn't utterly perfect at all times.
    Using Teams as an example of technological success shows how off this guy is.

      @juicy carrot 88 facebook is not really his own creation, twins came up with the idea to connect students. he was cowardly enough to run with the concept. and yes VR is fun for a while, but everything has been tested here with friends nothing beats freedom without internet, the pandemic has taught us that. for you he is smart i look for intelligence in a person , with new fun and fresh ideas. #meta is a joke. real people fly into the facebook jail for a month and fake accounts are supported. and reporting them has little effect

      I disagree. Respect your point of view that metaverse is not arrive yet. To me metaverse discourse is a way to open creatives, designers, engineers to go further and don't limit themselves. That's all is a vision tha enhances and push people to move and the ideas that they believe impossible. Is not about video games and less about been first in that I think for him and the boys developing is technology in growth stage. Xbox and video games are diferrent a completely different thing. Is about managment and motivation and changes through time. Metaverse is me and you pushing forward the limits of our imagination. Love his work and the way he motivates people is so wide open and free that makes on feel anything is posibble. What is the metaverse for you?

    I don't think people really want to live in a VR world, where we interact with others there. For gaming sure, it's cool, but not something you want to do for long periods, the problem with VR is it takes you OUT of reality, blocking your sight/sound I think the future is going to be more in augmented reality, where you can have real life with extra info on your HUD.

    Only big tech companies who are also good at video game industry are Sony and Microsoft. And that's for a reason. Meta, Amazon and Google can't be that big yet because they don't have enough experience. Microsoft and Sony started so early and they get rewards of that experience now.

    Wow. I truly tried to make it through that whole video, but you have so much wrong, on such a fundamental level, there's no point seeing your conclusions. Let's start with the basics. What is the Metaverse? I'll tell you what it's not. A 3D world. It's not Oasis. That's a piece of the Metaverse, but so is IRC. So is Discord. So is Facebook. The Metaverse is us projecting ourselves into the digital spaces as residents, instead of visitors. And some of us have been doing this since the mid 90s. Sure, it's cool to see this in 3D, but that medium itself, is not the Metaverse. Your account in here, your videos, you are ALREADY IN THE METAVERSE. You just don't realize it. So Microsoft owning all these games companies is sort of irrelevant, when it comes to the metaverse, but not for the reasons I just specified. The REAL reason Microsoft is irrelevant, is that it has zero presence in Web3.0. Blockchain is the next evolution of the Metaverse, through digital asset ownership, and the LAST thing MS or Meta wants, is ownership they do not control. That makes them BOTH irrelevant. But what really made me chuckle, was your Teams enthusiasm. Teams? Seriously? You realize it's just Sharepoint, right? Ancient sharepoint, with an extensible GUI on top of it. I use it every day, and it's cute, but it is nowhere near the future. You also said Microsoft was favoring 'cloud' over desktop OS's, and frankly, that doesn't even make sense. If your compute and storage are elsewhere, you STILL NEED A GUI TO INTERACT WITH IT. And hmmm, what GUI does Microsoft control? Windows. No offense, but you sound like someone WAY too young to be making these kinds of predictions.

    From the Description of MetaVerse, I thought it sounded like another VRChat, which is just a weird game where you can create an avatar to represent yourself with and make crude gestures at random strangers.

    Some good points. But, the Xbox box chat experience is extremely poor when playing Microsoft Windows PC games with friends on the Xbox console. Not sure how they compete with Meta in the metaverse when they can't even deliver a decent chat experience. Maybe one day Microsoft will integrate their console with Discord. Guess they could always buy Discord.

    You made a confusion between coining the term 'metaverse' and figuring out what virtual reality will evolve in the future, which is what millions of people have done since the eighties with great accuracy. So, Mr. Zuck's talking about what it should be and coining the term does not give him any technological or marketing head-start. Ideas don't start to come to life when you notice them, they use an army of obscure geniuses to lay foundation, then the guy with a bigger wallet and a bigger voice enters the scene.

    Biological effects of non ionising radiation need to be solved in order for the meta verse to not have significant negative effects on human health. Most aren’t aware of this issue but the science is there for anyone willing to look. Probably a solvable problem and huge ip opportunity.

    In 1903 a bank refused to lend to Henry Ford saying "The horse is here to stay, but the automobile is only a novelty-a fad."
    What I find amazing is we are living in the most innovative time in human existence, people over 35-40 can remember having o cell phones, no internet, and then dial-up when it came out where you were limited to how long you could be online each day! Set TV schedules, video cassettes and having to go to cinema or video store to see a film you wanted instead of immediate availability, driverless cars, digital cameras instead of having to send photos away to be developed, etc etc and yet so many seem to still be skeptical about this Metaverse.
    One point I'd make is that it's not M'soft vs F'book, it's M'soft AND F'book, and many other companies all working on the same idea.
    Think of other industries online like social media sites, games makers, game console makers, cell phone makers, PC makers, operating systems. It's almost never one company owning all the pie so if you think of it that way, it's pretty risky betting against the Meaverse.
