Facebook promises 'awesome' launch next week
Boydroid Zuck brewing fondleslab offerings?
Facebook could be launching long-awaited iPad and iPhone apps next week.
The company's founder Mark Zuckerberg told Reuters that Facebook would "launch something awesome" soon.
However, the boydroid, who this week reportedly signed up to Mountain View's latest social network effort Google+, declined to comment further.
Speculative reports suggest that Facebook's Seattle-based 40-strong team have created an app for Apple's iPad as well as an iPhone photo-sharing app.
Google, meanwhile, announced Google+ this week, which it is "field testing" with a small number of users.
Among the ranks invited to join the yet-to-be-finished product includes a very serious-looking Zuckerberg, according to Forbes.
Arguably, he's sizing up the would-be opposition, but given Google's track record with social networking, Zuck hardly needs to be overly concerned. ®
What would be
REALLY awesome would be to see everyone dropping this kind of crap.
... time for all the FarceBookers to re-check their security settings then
the only sensible application to use to interact with Facebook is Firefox with a few choice addons to block third party cookies and scripts, minimise data exposure and control script execution.
A black box, be it a software black box, that does what the employers of the developers think is best practice, regardless of what your position on data egress is, is not a sensible application.
