Its hard to ignore the new internet fued over who has control over YOUR and MY personal information.
It started when Facebook would not honor the reciprocal agreement of sharing contact information across the two supernetworks. Countered with Google keeping its users from pulling their contacts into Facebook, and Facebook launching a progressive roll out of email services…. The story is better told by Mashable.
In light of the recent internet war that is waging between these two dominators, I want to reflect on a bit of world history…
