Scott Forstall who was the software head at Apple then, told Mark Zukerberg, that Facebook should not include embedded apps like Farmville and others in the Facebook app for iPad. Zuckerberg was not happy about removing these embedded apps from the Facebook iPad app, because he considered them to be a part of the complete Facebook experience. He wasn’t sure that Facebook should make a Facebook app for iPad without these apps. Mark Zukerberg wanted Apple to compromise with the inclusion of the app, and he made a few suggestions as well. Forstall informed this to Steve jobs and the other executive over the email.  

To this, Steve Jobs replied to Forstall’s mail ‘I agree if we eliminate Fecebooks third proposal it sounds reasonable.’ Jobs referred to Facebook as Fecebook, and it didn’t seem like a typo. This is what led to rivalry between Apple And Facebook.
