Facebook is going old-school, with a stand-alone app for discussion boards aimed at letting users talk about shared interests without having to use their real names.
Are you sitting down? I'm glad I was when I heard that Microsoft just released two new mobile apps, Next Lock Screen and Journeys and Notes -- for Android devices and not Windows Phone.
Twitter is opening its nest to more mobile developers, with a new service for easier app sign-ins.

The new Apple-IBM partnership seems sure to help Apple sell more iPads to businesses, but it may also be setting off alarm bells at mobile device management companies large and small.
CIOs with an eye on mobility have probably spent a small fortune creating a private enterprise app store.
