Long ago, I worked at T-Mobile. This isn't the part where you pity me and my wretched past, I had a good time there and learned a great deal about the mobile industry; but I digress. I'm bringing up this old man on the back porch style story because I was there when the first android phone, the HTC G1 (or Dream) was released. I snapped up my little black brick as soon as I could. There were tons of people out there who said that the Android OS would never flourish in the face of Apple's monolithic iPhone sales and popularity, especially as an open-source program. And yet, years later, Android devices have taken 80% of the worldwide market with Apple's iOS holding a measly 15%. Why trot this out now? Because I think the future of VR lies in it being open for all and there has been a lot of talk about proprietary games for Oculus and Sony VR.
