Ooooh... One of tech's new giants takes on Apple *grabs popcorn*.
How long will it take before iSteve starts a crusade against Facebook? And the irony... Apple used HTML 5's greatness as a rationale for banning Flash, but now finds HTML 5 can be used to bypass their walled garden.
Soon, HTML 5 and Facebook will be evil. Use Flash on your iDevice! Use MySpace! iSteve commands it!
[citation][nom]Humans think[/nom]i think Facebook is purer evil than Apple. It is like comparing Diablo and Bhaal of course but still...[/citation]
I have to agree. I've never been a big fan of Apple, but Facebook/Zuckerberg have openly been worse than anything Jobs has ever done.
Paraphrasing from previous Zuckerberg quotes: "these morons actually trust me with their [apps]."
Facebook's continual privacy leaks it the main reason I refuse to use any of the Facebook apps. I'll use an app (native or HTML5) to access basic Facebook features, but I'll never use any 3rd party apps built on to of a Facebook API or platform (ex: Farmville or Hallmark Calendar). I simply don't trust Facebook to be competent when it comes to privacy.
oh no porn on Steve's precious iDevice! Next thing you know he will loose his vegan powers from the old half and half in the coffee trick and blammo! apple stocks plummet like Mafia whistle-blowers wearing concrete shoes thrown off a bridge.
Facebook's plan seems quite risky. Couldn't Apple just find a way of blocking this version of facebook? If web pages have the ability to know what device you are using, couldn't Apple just update iOS to trick facebook into loading a version of facebook that isn't the HTML5 site they are developing?

Although Apple has figured the legal workarounds and has total control over the App Store, it is serious to limit intentionally the access to a web page. I most serious countries this is illegal, imagine what would happen in E.U.. So with the existing legislation, the spartans are going to drill a whole through apple's defenses.
On a side note. Spartans is not a very good pick from a historical stand point. The only equivalent of Greek history is the trojan horse that the Greeks devised. But of course that has a rather bad annotation, doesn't it
What are the odds you will have to have a Facebook account with full profile to access these apps?
Sorry, Zucky ol' bean. Cold day in Hell before I trust you enough to do anything at all through Facebook. As far as I'm concerned, anything at all associated with Facebook is a huge data-scraping trojan horse. There is no app compelling enough to overcome that distrust.
[citation][nom]twile[/nom]"Does that mean Facebook's "App Store" will be like Google's Android Market and play host to malware and adult content? Most definitely not."How delightfully opinionated and baseless.[/citation]
+1, was thinking the same thing. Care to elaborate, Kevin?
