The real lesson of Facebook's Apple dust-up shows why Zuckerberg's 'hacker way' is even more dangerous than we thought (AAPL, FB)

Facebook's dispute with Apple this week illustrated that the social-networking company doesn't feel accountable to anyone. Facebook defied Apple's rules regarding both apps that monitor users' activities on their phones and apps that can be distributed through its enterprise channel, despite Apple's substantial power of the company. Regulators trying to figure out what to do about Facebook should study the incident closely, because it shows how immune the company feels to consequences for cros...

Facebook is to democracy what smoking is to health, say tech experts, who think the cure is breaking up the social network

At the World Economic Forum's Annual Meeting, some tech experts are embracing Salesforce CEO Marc Benioff's comparison of Facebook to smoking. "The incentives to manipulate attention are all about preying on the weakest elements of human psychology," Mark Zuckerberg's former mentor Roger McNamee told Business Insider. He and Jim Steyer, the founder of Common Sense Media, think the time has come for tough regulation — and even a breakup of Facebook. DAVOS, Switzerland — Nearly a year ago to th...

Tech giants offer empty apologies because users can’t quit

A true apology consists of a sincere acknowledgement of wrong-doing, a show of empathic remorse for why you wronged and the harm it caused, and a promise of restitution by improving ones actions to make things right. Without the follow-through, saying sorry isn’t an apology, it’s a hollow ploy for forgiveness. That’s the kind of “sorry” we’re getting from tech giants — an attempt to quell bad PR and placate the afflicted, often without the systemic change necessary to prevent repeated problems. ...
