Today we’ll be discussing two very separate companies that have been recently thrown in together in headlines all over the web: Facebook and Apple. The two major topics of discussion might surprise you.

Is Facebook secretly working on a major iOS competitor? Is Apple positioning itself to buy Facebook? Below we’ll take a look at what’s fueling these two rumors and discuss whether or not they’re likely to come to fruition.

Business Week reported earlier this week that Apple is teaming up with Unisys Corp. to manage relations with corporate and government customers. The article also noted that Steve Jobs made it a point to recently state how well Apple multi-touch devices are doing among Fortune 500 companies.

These events seem to suggest that Apple, not satisfied with stealing away average consumers, is now gunning for RIM’s most sacred turf: the corporate world. Blackberry products are synonymous with professional communication and has had a firm grip on the market even in these recent years after the iPhone’s release. As I consider how Apple will continue to pursue this new customer, one other group comes to mind.

Though it’s still officially in the rumor stage (no announcement from Verizon or Apple), the idea that Verizon will start offering the iPhone early next year is seen as a fact by many sources.

Bloomberg, The New York Times, and The Wall Street Journal are just a few places where we’ve been seeing headlines announcing that the phone is already being manufactured and prepped for shipping.

What we want to know is, do you care? Have you had enough problems with AT&T to immediately go running to another carrier as soon as it becomes possible? Or perhaps you’re one of the thousands already using Verizon, waiting patiently for the iPhone to arrive.

Cast your vote and leave a comment below telling us what you think of AT&T and Verizon and where you’d like to see the iPhone go next!

As Steve walked out on stage to face the crowd in the most recent Apple event, I was quite excited to hear what he had to say. I had no idea what to expect from Lion and didn’t want to even venture too many guesses so that there would be more awe than disappointment at the new features.

However, as Jobs began to discuss the premise of Lion, the gears in my head started to spin. He explained that Apple had learned quite a bit about both hardware and software while developing their line of iOS devices. Several new technologies had arisen that were so amazingly successful that they couldn’t wait to bring them “back to the Mac.”

The Apple App Store has revolutionized the mobile phone industry, and in the process, created dozens of copycats and changed the way people purchase software. But with all of the different pricing options, what really designates value? What makes a free app worth the download and an expensive app with lots of value too pricey? To find out, we decided to dig a little deeper.

In this week’s poll question, we want to know what you think of the reading experience on your iPad, whether through iBooks or a third party app like Stanza.

Though the iPad is anything but a simple reading device, it has been touted as a direct competitor to more dedicated readers like the Kindle and Nook. Obviously, the biggest competitor to these new-age digital readers is the beloved paperback.

So what do you think? Are e-readers a significant improvement over old school paper and ink? Is the iPad the best experience among these devices or is it the Kindle or some other competitor?

Leave a comment below and let us know what you think!
