Facebook announces new Groups, data portability, application control

During a press event today, Facebook announced new Groups, which aim to simplify and make social interaction more communal, data portability which sounds like it takes a little of the wall off Facebook's garden, and application control, which should let you better decide who gets your data.

Mashable's got the goods on all of it:

WC3 cautions HTML5 lacks interoperability, not ready for production

WC3 cautions HTML5 lacks interoperability, not ready for production

In an effort to slow the already glacial pace of the iOS-friendly HTML5 standard, the WC3 is telling developers to hold off on deploying the technology in their web sites due to lack of interoperability in certain areas.

"The problem we're facing right now is there is already a lot of excitement for HTML5, but it's a little too early to deploy it because we're running into interoperability issues," including differences between video on devices, said the official, Philippe Le Hegaret, W3C interaction domain leader. He is responsible for specifications like HTML and SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics).

WSJ: Apple making Verizon-compatible iPhone by year's end, newly designed iPhone 5 for 2011

WSJ: Apple making Verizon-compatible iPhone by year's end, newly designed iPhone 5 for 2011

None other than the Wall Street Journal, and the notoriously well-informed Yukari Iwatani Kane, is saying Apple will have a Verizon-compatible iPhone ready by the end of 2010, which means if a deal can be worked out, Verizon could be carrying it by early 2011 (as numerous previous rumors have suggested).

The new iPhone would be similar in design to the iPhone 4 currently sold by AT&T Inc. but would be based on an alternative wireless technology called CDMA used by Verizon, these people said. The phone, for which Qualcomm Inc. is providing a key chip, is expected to be released in the first quarter of next year, according to the same people.

Smartphone market-share vs profit-share visualized

Smartphone market-share vs profit-share visualized

Interesting visualization of smartphone market-share vs profit-share and how it's changed from 2007 to 2010. Also interesting how survey results use terms like Android vs. iPhone while the actual business metrics always seem to break down by manufacturer (notice it's Apple, not iPhone or iOS above, and no Android is mentioned, though Moto, Sammy, et al are front and center).

Sony Google TV vs Apple TV remotes

Sony Google TV vs Apple TV remotes

Sony's Google TV remote (left) as compared to Apple TV's remote (right) help make manifest just how different these products will be, and they're just two of the competitors poised to battle it out for next generation rights to your living room this holiday season.

Since Google's UI will be more search based and Apple's is more browsing based, is it right tool for right job? Or will we all be using our Android and iOS devices to control our fancy TV boxes anyway, so who cares what default hardware remote ships in the box?

More buttons than a NASA console or fewer than a classic iPod, which do you prefer?

iPad magically solves crimes on NCIS

iPad magically solves crimes on NCIS

iPad showed up on the hit CBS show NCIS tonight, helping out with the forensics work, though sporting a red hot skin case rather than the traditional lab jacket.

NCIS has a long history of using iPhones going back to the original, and so many shows have iPhones these days there's no way we can post them all, but iPad sightings have been far less common to date.

Is this a sign that's about to change? Has the TV iPad onslaught begun?

New iPhone 4 ad focuses on Every great thing about Retina Display

New iPhone 4 ad focuses on Every great thing about Retina Display

Apple has just posted a new iPhone 4 commercial, this one called "Every" and focused on the 960x640 Retina Display.

Calling it the highest resolution phone screen ever, it shows zooming in on a photo of a child's freckled face, the Pixar(!) movie Up, the calligraphic logo-type of the New York Times, highlighting in iBooks, the official Twitter for iPhone app, CoverFlow in the iPod app, Epic's amazing Unreal engine, and a home video.

It also confirms Apple has gone full circle from focusing on features for the original iPhone 2G, to focusing on apps for iPhone 3G and iPhone 3GS, to once again focusing on features for iPhone 4 like FaceTime and now Retina Display. It makes sense as competition first caught up to (and exceeded) features of previous models and are now beginning to catch up on apps. Reframing around the brief window of feature advantage iPhone 4 enjoys and adding in a big fat helping of emotional resonance will solidify the already iconic Apple brand in customers' minds.

The only question is, as Retina Displays and video calling becomes the norm, what's the next differentiator for Apple? AirPlay?

UPDATE: Mark Gurman over at 9to5Mac checked out the Twitter IDs shown off in the video, and sure enough, the accounts are real. The people on the other hand... we doubt it.

Video after the break.
