But at the same time, we can’t see a future where you’ll spend hour-long meetings in weird VR conference rooms. But all that centers on the strengths and weaknesses of VR as a whole. Today I want to get more specific. I want to talk about the Oculus Quest 2, the most accessible VR headset on the market.
IT. SUCKS. I mean that with all my heart. I hate the Oculus Quest 2. And that came as a shock because I love the original Oculus Quest. On paper, the sequel sounds better in nearly every way. So I instantly ordered it on day one. And now? I regret it. It’s awful. It’s terrible. Facebook should be ashamed. And if you check out the top story, I’ll tell you why.
Google discontinued the Pixel 5. It’s gone forever. That’s probably because it’s completely unnecessary now with the Pixel 5a. Don’t believe me? Check out our Pixel 5a review which will drop at 9 A.M. Eastern today.

When Facebook unveiled the Oculus Quest 2, it hailed the updated virtual reality (VR) headset as lighter, cheaper, and more powerful than ever.

A bento box is the perfect way to keep everything in your lunch stored separately when you need to take your lunch on the go (say for work, or on a hike).
