GoogleNews becomes a Facebook widget.
a) Google have a lot of smart autonomous people inside. Even if some of them get up and say "there is no platform war" no reason others can't be out there fighting it. And nothing to say platform vendor can't also be application vendor. See Microsoft on Mac etc.
b) Maybe Google has too many good ideas and allowing them to be FB widgets is the solution. :-)
