It's going to take us a while to get used to calling Facebook Meta, but spare a thought for Oculus Quest users, who are also being asked to call their VR headset by a new name. The gadget is now officially called the Meta Quest – but getting users to accept the change looks like it's set to prove something of a quest in itself.

In a tweet posted last week, the company attempted to use humour to announce the change, sharing a version of the famous 'two buttons' meme rendered in the Quest's  3D style. But it seems for most users, Meta isn't better. (Not got into the VR game yet? Check out the best VR headset deals.)
