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.

Because Apple's violations increase utility. Other's violations simply make things crappier.


The article is pretty light on details. How many connections was Apple's implementation spewing? Pretty ballsy thing to do if it were over Facebook's terms, but on the other side of the coin I can totally see Facebook blocking Apple solely for the news coverage.

Any more details on this?

Edit: As some have noted in that article, I think this is just some aggressive pre-deal posturing...
