Facebook: By Adding This App, You Agree to Be Used in an Ad

facebook app beaconThis kind of caught me by surprise — I’ve never seen it — even in the small print of a Facebook App — where adding an application to your profile equivocates signing away your likeness to said app for use in an add on your friends’ profiles. Here’s my friend Patrick Neeman of Speaktech being totally USED and I wonder if he even knows it?

Is this unique to the “Friends for Sale” App being advertised here or is this a standard policy allowed by developers who build Facebook Apps? Seems a little much to me… What do you think?

Obama-mentum: The ‘Bitter Muslim’ is Gonna Win – AP

For a few years I’ve felt an Obama presidency was inevitable and would resort to telling disbelievers to “just wait… it will happen, trust me.”

According to nearly all accounts, Obama virtually has a lock on the Democratic candidacy and has so for six weeks or so. It’s only a matter of time before Hillary Clinton drops out of the race, and the sooner the better.

And public acceptance of this reality is finally approaching critical mass:

In a dramatic reversal, an Associated Press-Yahoo! News poll found that a clear majority of Democratic voters now say Sen. Barack Obama has a better chance of defeating Republican Sen. John McCain in November than Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton.

Now we can only hope the Clinton campaign raises the white flag before the ridiculous cutting down of Obama cuts into his electability — even in purple states.
