Apple Well, this is an interesting double standard. Remember Apple's reaction to Palm trying to tap into iTunes? They were pretty pissed, right? Well, it seems that in Apple's world, it's not okay to access their services unauthorised, but when Apple needs to do the same to someone else's services, it's suddenly not a problem. As it turns out, Apple violated Facebook's terms of service, knowingly, and willingly.

Uh, actually iTunes existed before the iPod.

From Apples own site:

Apple Announces iTunes 2
Best Digital Music Software Gets Even Better

CUPERTINO, California—October 23, 2001—Apple today announced iTunes™ 2, the next generation of its award-winning digital music software for the Mac® that has been distributed to over six million users. iTunes 2 adds the three most requested features from iTunes users: MP3 CD burning, an equalizer and cross fading.

But iTunes 2’s most stunning new feature is its seamless integration with iPod™, Apple’s new breakthrough portable MP3 player.


Stunning new feature indeed.


Gee, a press release from 9 years ago - you know exactly where I am going to tell you where to shove the damn thing. We are talking about NOW, the policy NOW not 9 years ago, no 10 years ago, not back when you were wanking over Susy Smith at highschool - we're talking about what the policy from Apple is *TODAY!*
