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.

I don't have any use for it's privacy and other issues. I like the idea of Ping and the simplicity of it all. As someone who has to remove malware from peoples computers for a living, I could do without facebook and the security/privacy issues that it seems to never get right.

OMG, is Facebook the new Flash??

Obviously, I didn't get the memo and came late to our 15 minutes of hate. Hope Brother forgives me.

We were always at war with Facebook - just ask the Ministry of Truth.
