Tech titans Google, Facebook, Apple and others are in heated contention for ad sales, web traffic, and other business

Obama toasts Jobs, Zuckerberg, other tech titans

"President Barack Obama sat down with none other than Steve Jobs, Mark Zuckerberg, Eric Schmidt, Oracle's Larry Ellison, Yahoo's Carol Bartz and a handful of other billionaire tech titans.

The White House Flickr feed shared the above image, taken by Pete Souza, identifying these people only as "Technology Business Leaders," though bloggers made small work of attaching names to faces. According to the the New York Times political blog, The Caucus, the remaining folks in the shot are: Cisco's John Chambers, Twitter's Dick Costolo, Netflix's Reed Hastings, Stanford University president John Hennessy, Genentech's Art Levinson and "cleantech" entrepreneur Steve Westly."

Facebook is the new Google 

"...with half a billion members, Facebook is the only game in town, so leaving comes at pretty huge costs. And people developing new apps and services that might be within Facebook's reach? They should be afraid. Does this all sound familiar? It's not too tough a riddle: Just replace "Facebook" with "Google" and it all holds true.

The question is, how soon until Facebook takes on Google directly?"

Facebook tops Google as most visited site in U.S. 

"The social network site edged out with 8.9 percent of all U.S. visits between January and November 2010, while ranked second with about 7.2 percent of all visits, according to online measurement service Experian Hitwise."

Google to Facebook: Get out of my sandbox!

"The search giant has changed its Terms of Service agreement to block Facebook from accessing Google Gmail users' contacts, all in the name of reciprocity. It's a you-show-me-yours and I'll-show-you-mine move that comes at a time when the two Web behemoths are locked in battle over search, advertising, location-based services and the biggest of prizes: data collection."

Apple Hates And Fears Facebook, Says Insider

"650 million people use Facebook. It is far and away the most popular photo-sharing site in the world. And yet, when you take a picture with the built-in iPhone photo app, the only sharing options you have are email and MMS."
