How to Use Firefox Reality on the Oculus Go VR Headset | The Firefox Frontier
Virtual reality headsets are one of the hottest gifts of the season, but without an internet browser built for virtual reality the experience could fall flat. Enter, Firefox Reality, an internet browser made for headsets like the Oculus Go.
If you receive a virtual reality headset this season, you might be wondering how to use Firefox Reality on the Oculus Go. WebVR is still its infancy, whereas the internet is like a Millennial.
How will VR affect basic internet functions? Will “clicking” be a thing? The developers took all of these factors into account when building Firefox Reality.
Some companies make you pay for great VR experiences. Firefox Reality is free to download and gives access to immersive pages, games and even tools to create your own virtual project.

Sennheiser headset software could allow man-in-the-middle SSL attacks • Bleeping Computer
Lawrence Abrams:
<p>When users have been installing Sennheiser's HeadSetup software, little did they know that the software was also installing a root certificate into the Trusted Root CA Certificate store. To make matters worse, the software was also installing an encrypted version of the certificate's private key that was not as secure as the developers may have thought.

Similar to the Lenovo SuperFish fiasco, this certificate and its associated private key, was the same for everyone who installed the particular software. Due to this it could allow an attacker who was able to decrypt the private key to issue fraudulent certificates under other domain that they have no control over. This would allow them to perform man-in-the-middle attacks to sniff the traffic when a user visits these sites.

While these certificate files are deleted when a user uninstalls the HeadSetup software, the trusted root certificate was not removed. This would allow an attacker who had the right private key to continue to perform attacks even when the software was no longer installed on the computer.

According to a vulnerability disclosure issued today by security consulting firm Secorvo these certificates were discovered when doing a random check of a computer's Trusted Root Certificate CA store.</p>

Whaaaat. Some time later:
<p>Now that they had access to the private key for the root certificate, they were able to generate a wild card certificate that signs traffic from google.com, sennheiser.com, and for fun, some of the headset maker's competitors - jbl.com, harmankardon.com, and bose.com.</p>

ficiente como para aguantar cierto maltrato (yo soy de los que doy mucha guerra a los auriculares). Llevo un año con ellos y creo que hice buena compra. Si tu presupuesto es bajo, no te lo piense

Free isn’t cheap enough • The Blog of Palmer Luckey
You know, he's an Oculus (the VR people bought by Facebook) founder:
<p>In the end, hardware sales are a meaningless metric for the success of VR.  They matter only as a means to an end, a foundation to enable the one thing that truly matters: Engagement.  Engagement is all that matters.  Engagement is Everything!

This is just as true in the present day.  Hardware sales get a lot of attention and speculation from analysts and consumers alike, but the real name of the game revolves around the number of people logging in and spending money each week, the life force that makes everything actually go.  Recent market experiments with cheap VR hardware have shown that there are millions of people willing to buy said hardware, but very few among them continue to use the hardware or invest in the software ecosystem for very long.  This is true even when people get the hardware for free – the millions of cardboard boxes fulfilling their ultimate destiny on the back shelf of a closet don’t do much for the VR industry.  Why the lack of use?  Quality of experience.  If the free hardware was as good as the visor described in the first paragraph and paired with good content, a mass-market VR revolution would occur practically overnight.

And what if that visor cost $999 instead of $99?  Price is certainly a relevant factor in the rate of VR adoption, but not a dominant one – as someone who has had to eat my hat multiple times in pursuit of keeping costs low, I feel like I intimately understand what it must have felt like to deal with the response to the E3 2006 Playstation 3 price announcement.  Five hundred and ninety nine US dollars?!  The hypothetical visor provides quite a bit more for your money, though – it may not sell billions of units, but it would certainly sell by the hundreds of millions.  Lower pricing for existing VR technology can help expand the size of the active and engaged userbase, but not to nearly the degree many people would expect.  I want to take this a step further and make a bold claim: No existing or imminent VR hardware is good enough to go truly mainstream, even at a price of $0.00. </p>
