    guys its definatelly a speculation, but think about it, what powers it would instantly give to apple! first of all, a ready 500million userbase, with names, pictures, friends etc! second, ,more iADs. which means, instant income.

    and no, they would NEVER remove facebook from other smartphones, they are not stupid to lose the potential future customers. no matter how "alien" this rumor sounds, i bet that even if they didnt think about it before, now they will.

    ofcourse its all about zuckerberg wanting to let facebook go on apple, right??

    Personally
    APPLE has to come with someething to Distroy the Stupid Blackberry Messenger..
    That thing has to go AWAY !

    And this is the Time when Apple comes in with new Ideas.. Like since when do we know there were front sie Camera on phones?? A LONGGGG TIME... NOKIA.. Why didnt you boost the ability to use it...? Yeah there was no bandwidth ....but since How long does 3G exist Nokia? and Specialy in Europe? Well...it exist since hmm 2005 perhaps...... Yeah Nokia....Why Didn`t you boost and made you move on the Front Camera instead of making a phone that look like the iphone.... WELL........Thats a answer I cant tell........

    If anyone ends up buying Facebook it will be Google, not Apple.

    I think they should buy it if they can everything has FB integration now from post on modmyi which u can share on your FB and a ton of other sites. although I don't believe FB will always be worth as much as there estimating. I figure something better will come along and FB will end up like myspace.

    Who gives a crap about the lowest of low quality games that are Facebook apps? I don't know how in the HELL people find Farmville or Mafia Wars fun. And no, Flash games wouldn't go away, you can run Flash on Macs, they just don't want it on iOS. I'm almost starting to agree after using Frash…

    This article is nuts. There is no way Jobs would ever consider buying Facebook. Apple's stock price would plummet. No one is going to buy Facebook. There simply is no way to justify a purchase price of 40 billion dollars when not even a quarter of that could be recouped within a decade. Facebook doesn't make much (relative to the estimated value of the company).
    They can have my jailbreak when they pry it from my cold dead fingers.

    I never understood the point of facebook, twitter, etc. I tried to be "trendy" and update my life on the net... frankly I found it a stupid waste of time.

    I once prayed to God for an iPhone, but quickly found out He didn't work that way...so I stole an iPhone and prayed for His forgiveness.
