I agree fully with him, he has what both Apple and Google wants, and should let them in on his turf, only on his terms.

Google sells advertising – telling other people what they do not want to know and explain that what they consider lesser to be “better”.
Apple has technology and a congregation of loyal followers that they want expanded. Sorry, but the customers have accounts on Facebook, and are all already proud owners of an Internet access device. The access to the customer is what has value, court them and make them return. If you have to constrain them in any way or form, you will loose.

He does not have to discuss with Nokia, they make widgets that work on Facebook without any modifications, and effectively eliminates Google’s advertising. So, why should he change anything?
