Apple not buying Sony, Facebook, Disney, AT&T, Google, Australia, etc.



apple

Recently quite controversial rumors appeared in the Internet. They claim that Apple is going to acquire Sony, and even Facebook. But the company probably isn’t buying Sony, Facebook, or Disney, or Google, AT&T and etc. Apple isn’t going to spend its huge money, because the company isn’t even interested in manufacturing, social networking, and studio plays. We may only suppose that these rumors probably started after Steve Jobs said Apple is saving their $51 billion bank account for making 1 or 2 strategic acquisitions in the future.

Apple Is Rumored to Acquire Sony



sony_logo

Barron's rumor that Apple may be considering an acquisition of Sony, which appeared last Saturday, has gained more steam. According to Reuters, today the stocks of an electronic giant raised up to 3% at one point.

Emergency Facetime calls?



emergency-facetime

Some users are interested in a little button that is located in the lower right corner of the latest iPod touch screen. What can it be? Is it one of the Photoshop errors by Apple developers?

Facebook: 44 mln users of iPhone app, not 104 mln



facebook-logo-cjr

Yesterday Facebook released some astonishing statistic results showing an astronomical number of monthly active users – over 100 million on iPhones, almost 60 million on BlackBerry and 12 million on the Android client. However, double-checking, these numbers seem a little bit strange: can there really be more than 100 million iPhone users, when by June 2010 only 100 million iOS devices had been sold, and this includes the iPod touch, iPad and iPhone? Turns out, the explanation is just in the definition of “active”. Here’s how a Facebook spokesman accounted for the figures:

iPhone Beats Android: Facebook statistics



facebook-logo-cjr

Facebook has released some statistics for its mobile application on different platforms, and the results are pretty interesting to look at. iPhone is right ahead with more than 104 mln active monthly users. BlackBerry goes second, with almost 60 mln, while Android is enjoying no more than 12 mln users. So, what do these numbers tell us? Last counted, there are more than 500 mln users of Facebook across the world, and it turns out that more than a third of them are using mobile applications. Quite an impressive figure!

Facebook to Get Location Service “Places” for iPhone



FacebookPlaces1Mark Zuckerberg, CEO and founder of Facebook, a well as other developers, engineers and partners have announced a new application called Facebook Places, which is able to determine the location. It's a bit like Foursquare and Gowalla, which allow identifying places where you've been to share them with all your friends and family on Facebook. You can see which of your friends are now being in the same place and who of them has already been there. Of course, you can change everything in your privacy settings, and select those users who are your friends on Facebook, so they can see your places. Facebook also plans to maintain a complete history of places that you have done on a special page in the Internet.

Existing location-based services, such as Foursquare, Gowalla and Yelp are also announced as partners. So you can still use these services, but now they integrate with Facebook “Places”, which allows publishing their data on the wall of Facebook.
