Om vs Home (Facebook Home, that is)

John Gruber invited me to his podcast, The Talk Show this past week and we talked about a whole bunch of things. Amongst topics discussed: 

  1. Facebook Home (the faux-app/OS hybrid.)
  2. Facebook and its mobile OS (why I believe there is one in the works and is coming.) 
  3. Why Andy Rubin left Android behind
  4. Apple’s challenges. 

Of course, there is a lot of digest but the biggest point I wanted to make was about Apple and its one shortcoming – its inability to come to terms with the notion of connectedness. I have not written about it, not because I didn’t want to. I just have not been able to find a block of time to write. Soon…when I get on a plane again!

Here is a link to John’s blog post and here is a link to the podcast which is from the house of Mule

    The new alignment: Atoms vs. electrons. Software vs. hardware. Google, Amazon, Facebook vs. Apple, Samsung.

    Is that the big secret behind GAF, Google, Amazon, Facebook? Free phones or Ad subsidized phones? Is the new alignment software versus hardware? electrons versus atoms? GAF vs. Apple-Samsung? It’s an interesting filter with which to view decisions in the next few years: Why does Apple refuse to do a cheap phone? What does Google not commit to phones? Like that.

What do you think?
