    Facebook is back with more Portal devices- including the new Mini (though we have to wait a bit longer to get the Portal TV). But does a company with so many privacy scandals deserve ANY real estate in your living room?

      Facebook isn't learning, i want to make this exceedingly fucking clear.
      They don't care as much anymore, because they've already come as far as they have.
      Don't get me wrong, they're still eavesdropping, just, solely to sell your data this time around.
      Then again, i'd be surprised if you weren't already integrated in the big evil, considering this decade's internet usage.

        Gloves off.
        Purely visual input data wasn't enough anymore, plus, you can only do so much with static input.
        Facebook needed to contribute to the project, and i'm almost certain that this isn't the last product we're going to see of them.
        Google is no better for working with them either.
        Final stretch now boys, get ready.
        Shit's about to get _exceedingly horrible and/or terrifying._

I answered my own question by finding that the price was $99.99.  And, it also works with Messenger and WhatsApp, which means there might really be a market for this.
