How does the share price falling hurt Facebook? They sold the shaes at the IPO price so they already got the money. If they want more money in the future they issue more shares... Basically Facebook just got shitloads of money in exchange for a marginal loss of control. How are they losing out?

I had a Blackberry Torch 9800 for 2 years and switched to a Samsung Galaxy S2 in March. I was really sad to lose BBM and the physical keyboard, but I find that I like the Galaxy a lot.

My main problem with the browser stems from the phone's hardware now that I think about it actually. The browser was constantly asking me to close pages because it "ran out of memory". Interestingly enough this happened most on Slashdot, but wasn't limited to just this site. Pretty much any graphically intense page also had the problem.

I have a profile on LinkedIn which has done me zero good so far, but one thing about the site has always bothered me.

Is it truly ethical to gain an upper hand with regards to employment prospects because of who you know instead of your individual performance or merits?

To me the site just seems like a blatant promoter of cronyism, promoting the hiring of friends or aquaintences over those who may be more qualified.
