In issue 5 of Other Realities we mentioned the concerns around Facebook and anti-competitive behavior. It turns out that this was just barely ahead of FTC lawsuits for monopolistic practices. It's made significant news so we aren't featuring that in this issue, but certainly hope that however things land that we don't see Oculus being shelved due to the Facebook login requirements. A reversal back to individual login accounts may save the platform from being wrapped up into the larger problems the company is facing.

In this issue we’re not adopting an overall theme to the issue and broadening our view to topics and gear that we found interesting this week. If you would like to suggest links or topics for future issues then please tweet me with suggestions or reply to this mail.
