PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "The reviews are in: Facebook Home, Mark Zuckerberg's grandiose stab at totally controlling our mobile experience, is an unmitigated disaster. On Wednesday, AT&T announced that it was dropping the price of the HTC First smartphone, which comes with Facebook Home built in, from $99 to 99 cents. Think about that: a new smartphone, priced to jump off the shelves at Dollar General. It's a great deal, but it is also hugely embarrassing for Zuckerberg. [...] For confirmation we need only look at the Google Play store, where the Facebook Home app, which can be installed on select Android phones, has now fallen to the No. 338 ranking in the category of free apps. That's 200 spots lower than it ranked just two weeks ago." Totally did not see this coming whatsoever.

Okay, I can see why you might be offended, sorry. Still, I feel pretty dumb for continuing to give up my privacy for easier communication. I don't care how strict one sets their privacy settings on Facebook, the fact remains they still see and record everything you do on the service as well as other websites you visit even after you log off of theirs. That was proven last year and they still haven't fixed their cookie "oversight".

And please understand I'm not calling you dumb or stupid; I've conversed with you long enough on here to know you are nothing of the sort. But I can beat myself up all day long. :-)
