Meta boss Mark Zuckerberg has taken a personal swipe at rival company Apple’s new headset.

The Vision Pro grabbed headlines as celebrities including Diplo and T-Pain wore it in public, with the “passthrough” feature allowing them to see their surroundings while using it.

But in a video shot using the Meta Quest 3’s own passthrough, Zuckerberg insisted his company’s headset is “the best product, period”.

Apple has been approached for comment.

Passthrough is a feature used by the most recent mixed reality headsets, which allows people to see beyond the screen strapped to their head.

By utilising cameras on the outside of the headset, users are given a live, high-definition video feed of their surroundings – meaning they can wear a headset while walking or exercising.

Meta has been working on this technology for the better part of a decade, and it also

“Simply, the Internet of Things is made up of devices—from simple sensors to smartphones and wearables—connected together,” says Matthew Evans, the IoT program head at techUK. For the near future, AR is looking to outpace VR for growth and profitability. Reports predict that the global VR gaming market size will be worth $45.09 billion by 2025. The number of positions for network and computer systems administrators is expected to grow by at least 2% from 2022 to 2032 according to the U.S. Jobs that use this skill include system administrators , cloud engineers, network engineers, and virtualization engineers. Virtualization is a crucial skill in the evolving IT/cloud landscape and it has paved the way for the widespread adoption of cloud computing.

US charges Apple ex-employee for trying to steal technology, fleeing to China

US charges Apple ex-employee for trying to steal technology, fleeing to China

By Sarah N. Lynch, David Shepardson and Karen Freifeld

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The United States on Tuesday announced charges in five cases involving alleged efforts to steal technology to benefit China, Russia and Iran including a former Apple Inc engineer accused of targeting the company’s technology on autonomous systems, including self-driving cars, and then fleeing to China.

The cases detailed at a Justice Department press conference centered on allegations concerning the theft of trade secrets and other technology. Two of the cases involved what US officials called procurement networks created to help Russia’s military and intelligence services obtain sensitive technology.

The five cases were the first announced by a US “strike force” formed in February in part to protect sensitive technologies, although the investigations began before it was created.

“We stand vigilant in enforcing US laws to stop the flow of sensitive technologies to our foreign adversaries,” Matt Olsen, the
