    The important thing about that Hausel analysis is that it only works in retrospect, it has no predictive power. Lots of technology gets to the toy stage and stalls: jetpacks, flying cars, segway, Google Glass, VR previously, 3d tv....

      Exactly. This is silly.

      For every airplane that proved its naysayers wrong, there were roughly, I don't know, a million actually bad ideas that were rightly criticized as bad ideas and never became not bad ideas.

      VR will be incredible for a few very small niches. But I'd be surprised to see it go beyond that, and even if it did, I don't want it to. So I'll continue to be a naysayer.
