Facebook shipped tens of thousands of controllers for its new Oculus headsets with ‘inappropriate easter eggs’ making light of the company’s privacy disasters.
Among the ‘easter eggs’ were choice phrases like ‘Big Brother is Watching,’ ‘The Masons Were Here,’ ‘This Space for Rent’ and ‘Hi iFixit! We See You!’
The easter eggs were supposedly meant to be on just the prototype controllers, but ended up making it onto ‘tens of thousands of Touch controllers.’
‘Unfortunately, some “easter egg” labels meant for prototypes accidentally made it onto the internal hardware for tens of thousands of Touch controllers,’ Mitchell said.
‘While I appreciate Easter eggs, these were inappropriate and should have been removed.
‘The integrity and functionality of the hardware were not compromised, and we’ve fixed our process so this won’t happen again,’ he added.
