Scarier than any movie or video game...

Clearly, one of the biggest tech stories of the week again involves Mark Zuckerberg breaking out the Facebook checkbook, this time to the tune of $2 billion, to buy Oculus VR, a company which has developed the Oculus Rift virtual reality headset. While the headset was envisioned primarily for gamers, Facebook may ultimately have other plans for it.

I guess we'll just have to wait and see what the Zuck and his team noodle up.
