Eight short years ago, the words “we” and “work” were innocuous enough. Today, the phrase WeWork can cause a range of emotions including awe, disdain, joy, and, at least for its erstwhile competitors (whose ranks are growing), fear.Using what the New York Times called its “…recipe [of] an industrial chic aesthetic, some big common areas with comfy couches, free beer and piped-in pop music,” the company is rapidly moving beyond its co-working roots and is now undeniably transforming the otherwise staid commercial real estate market.As the Times explored in its article, “The WeWork Manifesto: First, Office Space.

That’s because those features run on Facebook’s internal, custom-built iPhone apps — and Apple had shut them all down, according to nine current and former employees of the companies, who requested anonymity because they were not authorized to speak publicly. The situation stemmed from a dispute after … [Read more...] about Apple Shows Facebook Who Has the Power in an App Dispute
