Facebook Acquires Former Apple Designer's Push Pop Press - Liz Gannes - Social - AllThingsD

Perhaps Facebook/Google competition has now entered a phase reminiscent of the scene in “The Right Stuff” with the lament “Their German scientists are better than our German scientists,” except with former Apple designers instead of German scientists…

Facebook has acquired Push Pop Press, the company behind iPad app “Our Choice,” based on a book by Al Gore.

Push Pop Press was founded by former Apple design prodigy Mike Matas, who demoed “Our Choice” at the TED conference this year to rave reviews.

But Facebook warned it does not plan to release digital books any time soon.
