Typo? Picture: Cult of Mac
Jobs used “Fecebooks” throughout an internal series of e-mails about whether the social-media giant would be permitted to develop video games into the Facebook application for iPhone and iPad. Apple eventually denied the proposition.
Apple, on the other hand, takes a strong position on personal privacy. Thats triggered Apples existing CEO Tim Cook to butt heads with Zuckerberg.
Any relationship between the 2 guys clearly stopped at the workplace door. Jobs used “Fecebooks” during an internal series of e-mails about whether the social-media giant would be enabled to construct video games into the Facebook application for iPhone and iPad. Apple eventually rejected the proposition.
The conversation was brought to light by the continuous court battle between Apple and Epic Games.
Apple vs. Facebook goes on.
Disputes between Apple and Facebook have actually made headlines recently, but bad blood in between the 2 companies dates back years. In 2011, Apple co-founder Steve Jobs even called the social-networking service “Fecebooks.”.
Its possible this is an easy typo. But what Jobs composed is incredibly near merging “feces” with Facebook. This may be a Freudian slip.
Or perhaps not. Jobs supposedly admired Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook founder and CEO. Zuckerberg claims Jobs provided him guidance on starting his company.
Facebooks primary company is advertising. It collects all the individual data it can about individuals who utilize its social-networking service, then sells that information to marketers. Apple, on the other hand, takes a strong position on personal privacy. Thats caused Apples current CEO Tim Cook to butt heads with Zuckerberg.
Most recently, Apple added App Tracking Transparency to iPhone and iPad. This needs third-party applications to ask permission to prior to tracking their users. It may cost Facebook billions of dollars.
