This week, The Drill Down team (including occasional co-host TechMeme editor Lidija Davis) talk about employers asking prospective new hires for their Facebook (and other social) passwords and Facebook’s reaction to that. Also, we look at the issues and reactions that have emerged in the two weeks since the launch of Apple‘s new iPad.
But first, this week’s headlines… Apple to pay dividends, Kevin Rose to work for Google, Zynga buys OMGPOP, Facebook buys 750 patents from IBM, Nokia‘s Lumia 900 comes to AT&T, Obvtuse vs Svbtle, and Google shows you what you’ve been doing…on Google.
