So are Facebook..and Google, threatened by the rise of smartphones. Facebook is finding it hard to monetize smartphone traffic. Google has reason to be concerned after 'Facebook Home'. If only there was some sort of middleware to run Android apps on iOS, it would really throw the cat among the pigeons! It would also be an equalizer of sorts given that Android is a free OS. Would democratize the environment especially if someone also came out with a way for non-progammers to build apps, much like anyone who's picked up MS Office can create a small Windows based program using MS Access.
On another note, I have a gut feeling that Facebook Home will lead to quite a few lawsuits around anti-trust, patents and privacy.
