In 2008 when I was a new avatar Free Dove was my store of choice. Some great designers had introductory gifts. GuRL 6 had a free hairdo for those newer than 30-days old. I jumped on that. I bought a bunch of GuRL 6 hair once I figured out how to earn money, my stripper-days. I still have some GuRL 6 do’s I wear. The ACI is pretty good. But, GuRL 6 is no more. 🙁

Oculus Go – A new cheap Oculus is coming. Word is this year. Stated price US$200. For details see the long article, Oculus Go world premiere: Acceptable compromises, amazing quality. Consider this, Hands-On: Oculus Go – The Gear VR Killer.

The phone-VR field has its problems and dedicated VR headsets are a better choice on several points. But, the price is still holding back VR adoption, IMO, and supporting the cheaper phone-VR headset market.
