Technology, journalism, social media and social responsibility
Earlier this week, in an exclusive interview with Mark Arrington of TechCrunch to clear up rumors of a Facebook branded phone, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg said that he wants to put a Facebook software layer on every phone.
Could this be the onerous demand to which Jobs alluded?
And if so, does this not mean that Jobs will fight putting a Facebook layer on the iPhone and perhaps other i-devices as well?
If recent history is any indication (a la Apple vs. Adobe Flash), he’ll eventually recant.
I’m just wondering how many other seemingly ill-conceived rulings by Apple brass (see the latest Apps guidelines) will have to be rescinded before we have a truly open communications environment?
Stay tuned, this is likely to get interesting…
