Facebook the biggest thing in tech?

After seeing that the top tech story on the BBC today is "Fans fight for Scrabulous future" i was a bit perplexed.

Is the main use of technology these days those time-wasting facebook apps. Surely there are much more relevant tech stories than the fact that some users can't waste 8 hours a day on Facebook. It is becoming the default easy news story, but really, how about something a bit more relevant. There was no 'Sun buys MySQL' or 'Oracle buys BEA' stories at all, both developments of that day being a lot more significant than whether some people can't play scrabble or not.
