re: Facebook App Store: Second Time The Charm?
It seems to me that a Facebook app store can never be as successful as an Apple App Store. Not even close. With Apple's apps (and with other app stores of this kind), you're downloading something to a device. With Facebook apps, you're typically opening up some kind of channel between the app and all of your data, and it's never really clear what the ramifications are. (I've seen a great many apologies from Facebook friends who have unwittingly started spamming their friends with updates as a result of downloading some innocent-seeming Facebook app.)
