Does Money Buy Happiness for Black Americans?

A Pew Research Center report released earlier this month found that, like Demuth, most Black Americans are finding happiness through friends, family, and faith. More than 80% of Black adults say they are at least somewhat happy these days. And, although those who report a higher income are more likely to say they are extremely or very happy, regardless of how much money they made, a complimentary studyshowed that Black folks reported similar amounts of pressure around having to have enough to provide for their families, own their own home, and do the things they want to do. Black immigrants reported feeling even more of a burden.

Surprise! Mark Zuckerberg thinks Quest 3 is better than Vision Pro

Mark Zuckerberg tried Apple’s Vision Pro headset and his verdict is that the Meta Quest 3 is a better product. Shocking, right?

In a video posted on his Instagram account, recorded with Quest 3’s passthrough, the Meta CEO said before trying out the headset he thought that Quest 3 would provide better value to people as it is seven times less expensive than Apple’s $3,500 headset. But after his tryst with the Vision Pro, he thinks his company’s product is superior.

“I don’t just think that Quest is the better value, I think Quest is the better product, period,” he said. “Different companies made different design decisions for the headsets, they have different strengths. But overall, Quest is better for the vast majority of things that people use mixed reality for.”
