Miguel Helft, of the New York Times, points out that if it is true that the enemy of your enemy is your friend, then Apple and Facebook, who share Google as an enemy, should be best buddies.

"But Apple's entry into social networking with the iTunes music social network Ping on Wednesday, has made them frenemies (or friend-enemies)," notes Miguel. "And like with all frenemies, issues need to be worked out."
