Facebook Home

So today was the facebook event. The news was definitely different than I think most people were expecting. Turns out they announced not really a phone, but a new “facebook platform” for android. In one hour they once again threw off Google’s efforts to be social. What’s more is the brought it to Google’s house and said I can do it better. Ouch Facebook that burns. What I can say is regrettably, it does look compelling and when it comes to the Google play store on April 12th I will install it just to check it out. I will let you guys know if it is worth having.   Read more here

What Facebook Home Looks like

Facebook Phone?

There seems to be a buzz around the internet right now about an event Facebook is having soon. Everyone seems to think that they will announce a piece of hardware dedicated to the Facebook service. To me it seems very Chrome book like. What I mean by that is they are dedicating an otherwise fully functional android phone to one Android app. That app being their updated Facebook android app.

There has been a phone in the past made by HTC that had a dedicated Facebook button that launched the pre-installed Facebook app. I myself don’t know how popular this phone was. I think they are pounding the consumer door once again because they believe that today’s consumer has a need for a dedicated Facebook device. I quite honestly think they are wrong.

People are looking for unity these days. They want devices that can give them access to as many services as possible, not lock them into one service. That device would be about as useful as the pricey Sony mp3 player I got about 3 years ago. No ability to do anything other than music. Great for a minute until you want to do something else. Then the device gets put on the shelf never to be seen again because it cant do anything else.

I don’t hold out much excitement or hope for this device. Google Glass seems more realistic in comparison to this sad story.
