    Haha
    I think mostly the iphone will become a Facebook Phone where areas everything is linked with FB... what you do you can link or post it on FB....
    Second I think that Apple will redesign the interface and I think it will become a nice and better performace thatn what FB is actualy right now with a lot of bugs in it.
    Third I think that Desktop computer of Apple (imac, macbook) .the Whole Os will also be based and intergrated with FB. You`ll be able to post any kind of things on FB directly from a Folder for example.

    And last..This will open many other doors for many other things... FB will become stable, more attractive with colors and interface...Itunes will be on you FB synciing with your iDevice like Mobile ME

    One thing for sure, facebook would be much more safer than it is now..
    And I dont see Apple doing things like "post a picture of yourself to facebook" = haha, we now own all right of your picture and we can use it out of the context, edit, share and even use it in porn industry..

    Wait a minute... If Apple bought Facebook, would that mean all of the games would go away because they are flash-based?

    No need to bust balls, and I read it. I'm just saying, just because they're 'supposedly' going public doesn't mean it's a definite yes.

    Facebook as imagined by Apple

    Strict censorship of display pictures: each must be reviewed before posted

    No flash content: Jobs thinks that kids play Farmville too much

    Facebook is closed: suddenly you won't see those "useless" groups

    Insanely minimalistic: remove all parts of user's profile pages until only the display picture and apple logo are on the page

    I don't see it happening, but it'd be cool if they did.

    if they buy facebook obviously it will be integrated into ping so then what will facebook be if ping has facebook plus ping itself?

    even though apple will rule the universe by buying facebook.

    i doubt it

    What has Messany done to the other writers who used to only write articles where the rumors at least had SOME base. Pure speculation is an understatement.

    ...You know, we've demonstrated a strong track record of being very disciplined with the use of our cash. We don't let it burn a hole in our pocket, we don't allow it to motivate us to do stupid acquisitions.
    Try reading your own quotes before you use them to make up crap. You guys are better than that.

    a bunch of private investors did buy out BK so its possible. Apple can buy out any technology or not related $50 billion or less if they wanted to... but it just aint gonna happen. Even if antitrust laws didnt exist Steve said it himself. No stupid acquisitions. (So... only acquisitions that will "legally" give them a horizontal/vertical monopoly)
