Facebook has entered into an agreement to purchase Oculus VR—the famed virtual-reality firm that snatched up John Carmack as its CTO. The acquisition is valued at $2 billion, four fifths of which involves Facebook stock changing hands. (The remaining $400 million is cash.)

I dont think so - if you read in development blog at Rift - this is worst news ever. SO many developers will abandon Rift. They dont need us anymore. Carmack works for Mark? Hell on earth!

Oh this is just great. Well as long as the CIA ahem, sorry Facebook don't require me to have an account then I might get one. They'll probably wire in social network subliminals whilst you use it. :D
