Internet & Networking Because there aren't enough of these things already: "Today, we're announcing the App Center, a new place for people to find social apps. The App Center gives developers an additional way to grow their apps and creates opportunities for more types of apps to be successful." Like I'm giving Facebook my credit card number. I mean, Apple, Microsoft, and Google: fine. But I draw the line at Facebook. Really. I will. And yes, this is sarcasm.

Which I find all the more hilarious given the millions of hardcore conservatives here in the U.S. who are addicted to the service.


Um, you do realize that the preceding comments are humor based on the accidental similarity between "social network" and "socialism", that they are not actually related concepts, and that Facebook has as much to do with socialist political philosophy as turnips. Don't you?

Sorry, I thought it would be obvious that was the direction I was going with it too, with the implied "conservatives are generally stupid enough to believe that" sentiment.

I guess I should have put quotes around "Socialist" after all.

Ha! Thought so. I'm so used to political vitriole on the more mainstream sites, though, that your serios-looking tone gave me pause. :-)
