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
