A little more on Facebook Home: Cover Feed, Home's news feed-driven home page and lock screen, will eventually support ads. But Home won't initially support Android widgets and folders, something that could both run afoul of Google's policies and turn away some users. Though Samsung's Galaxy S IV and many other phones will support Home via download, phones that have it baked in, such as the HTC First, will support additional features. Farhad Manjoo: "They're really challenging Google on openness. They're almost daring Google to close it." (live blog)

    Google should tell Facebook to take a hike and require them to power the phone with something other than Android. Its not like Apple would let them get away with something like this so that would leave Facebook with Blackberry and Microsoft; two systems that are dead men walking.
