Great post from Dan Lyons on The Daily Beast / Newsweek about the Facebook Instagram purchase.
In the piece Lyons makes the rather obvious point that these mobile devices are turning out to be pretty popular. So much so that Zuckerberg realized his Desktop Internet system will die if it doesn’t get mobile tout de suite.
We may not like Facebook as a company as much anymore but this was a smart acquisition in the Andy Grove, “Only The Paranoid Survive” kind of way. He may turn out to be more Jobs-like than the rest of the desktop-CEOs.
