    Is he talking about Playbook OS2 or BB10?

    He can't be serious. RIM is far to original to copy a feature from Apple. O_O

    I believe he's mocking Apple with such a mundane feature to gloat about.

    I don't see how that says anything about facebook integration? and if thats what hes referring to, he said "Seen it somewhere before " which means hes seen the integration on BBOS which already has facebook integration to some degree, like posting photos and sending stuff from apps...so BB already has it, so cant really copy Apple now can they??

    I cant stand this sort of stuff, like how you said RIM is far to original to copy features from Apple, yet Apple technically copied RIM and RIM's Facebook integration...soooooo yeah, its annoying to hear people say ".....copying apple", when usually apple copies other ppl

    Passionate much? Relax, it was a joke. Everyone "copy's" everyone. It's kinda how the world works. Did Tide copy off Gain or did Gain copy off Tide. Who made the first shoe laces because God forbid I buy a pair made by someone who copied off someone else's idea!

    It's sooo not that serious...

    Nothing cracks me up more than when an iPhone user tries to show off all the cool features an a BB user can say "you can just do that now?"

    Don't worry, I am fully aware that the iPhone can do things that a BlackBerry can't.

    But it's the media and what not that have said BlackBerry is dated and featureless, when in reality, has a lot of similar features to iOS. Just marketed differently.

    Revolutionary feature!
    No wonder iOS6 is being touted as the most advanced mobile OS in the world.

    lol..yeah they are. not much of a battle when it comes to features. apple will do what they will do and us bb lovers will defend our beloved brand. although some just can't let it go even though we know where the original feature came from. some of us just need to calm down..lol

    You realize that the Facebook and Twitter apps in available BBOS tightly integrate them into the OS right now don't you?!?! I'm simply amazed at people thinking that RIM is copying Apple when in fact Apple is finally catching up with some things RIM has been doing solidly for quite some time!

    I haven't personally because I don't have Facebook, but I believe I read a tweet from a RIM employee that said it worked on the PlayBook browser.
