    Was there something false in this article? Seemed pretty straight forward to me.

    This is why I don't use Facebook to begin with.

    Like I said, it’s an AP story that Breitbart republished. It is presumably accurate, but I’ll be damned if I’m going to generate page views for Breitbart by reading it on their site.

    Zuck can end this now. He has the power to delete the website. Delete the site, Zuck.

    That's because the market has baked in a new take on what they now figure the Fed really meant the last time Powell opened his mouth. Nothing to do w/ FB.

    Facebook absolutely sucks man but I think the takeaway here is that using iOS devices and apps to power your internal systems seems really dumb now. Apple could revoke your license and claim you are breaking ToS and bring down stuff.

    The hospital system i work for has been aggressively rolling out iOS over the past two years and after this they started talking about slowing that down, a lot.
