Scrabble Comes To Facebook, Way, Way Too Late

Scrabble is finally coming to Facebook this month. Of course, Facebook users have already been playing Scrabble for a long time -- they just haven't been playing an official version game.

Scrabble Comes To Facebook, Way, Way Too Late

This is an all-too familiar story: major content owner ("Scrabble") fears online distribution and holds back all online distribution.
