Great post Yaron,

I personally think that the duplication issue is more complex.

This app doesn't need to beat the Facebook.com experience in general. It only competes with Facebook's experience once you are using the iPad.

The fact that a user chooses to consume the content through his iPad is good enough for a company to build an interface alternative to the one that Facebook and Twitter are offering.

I believe that wining users through offering a different UI is indeed dangerous path, but might very well work.

So Flipboard might not stop you from going to Facebook.com on your PC, but it sure can win your full attention while on your iPad.

Could be Daniel... Time will tell. My bet is that most people will use Flipboard much less than they think they will...
