This just in (via Techcrunch): Apparently Facebook is planning to develop its somewhat crude messaging service into a full-blown email service supporting pop, imap and all that fancy stuff. Well that is just great, now they are going to read my mail too then? I am going out on a limb here, but in 15 years Facebook will have taken over the world and there will be a war with the machines and both Arnie and Christian Bale will be too old to safe us then… (and Summer Glau won’t help humanity because she won’t have forgotten that she got cancelled.)
But looking at it from a more moderate position: Google is reading all our emails too, so it probably won’t matter anyway. And imap is awesome!
