  • alternate discovery mechanism for mobilized web content
  • desired by telefonica, we agreed to it a while ago
  • has a number of problems, including need to be online all the time
  • not a direct competitor to marketplace
  • working with them on rev share and getting interesting content from them into marketplace
  • not using mozApps API, use a custom API
  • don't go through a real install process, but it looks to the user like an install
  • unclear why, but that's the way it'll be for v1
  • everything.me reps will be in MV office october 15 to discuss issues
  • get issues to kward and rfant by then for discussion at that time!
  • telefonica-specific? yes, right now it is
  • but mozilla is contractually-obligated to offer it to other carriers
  • what about apps that are available from both everything.me and also are pre-installed on device (like twitter)?
  • multiple ways to get apps -- strength of the open web!
