That's right. It's an anti-Palm conspiracy. We've got secret meetings and a decoder ring, and even a clubhouse. Beware. Meanwhile, hparsons has no agenda, and if you "go back and look at his postings and threads", that will IN NO WAY show the same pattern on the opposite side of the spectrum.

I don't understand why I have to see an app to confirm what someone else who has seen it has: the lack of features. It was NOT Joshua Topolsky or Dieter's personal opinion that the WebOS Facebook app is feature-poor. They are simply reporting objective facts.
Do you need to operate or buy a Pre to know that it can't record video? No, you can clearly read the confirmed objective reporting widely available. Do I need to see use the Facebook app to confirm that it can't access the FB inbox, invites, and profiles and pics of people not in your immediate feed? No, this has already been confirmed and it confirms that it has less features than both A) Official FB apps on competing platforms and B) Mobile Facebook websites already formatted for spec mobile Webkit resolution.
This is a disappointment, objectively speaking, because anyone who wanted a FB app these past five months wanted something that EXCEEDED the mobile websites and interacted with WebOS in some meaningful fashion. If you didn't, then you wouldn't want/need an app in the first place.
