Video reveals the process behind "Designing Facebook Home"
One of the problems was how to let Facebook Home users access their apps. Facebook's Francis Luu revealed that the pre-packaged Lunchables meal for kids was the inspiration for a tray of apps that was going to be presented as Launchables. Instead, that turned into Dock, which offers users a row of their favorite apps found at the bottom of the launcher.
The video is called "Designing Home" and it offers viewers a fascinating look at how an app like Facebook Home goes from an idea to a listing in the Google Play Store. What makes it so interesting is the insight into how decisions are made, which ideas are kept and which ones are discarded and why. You can check it out by clicking on the video below.

Step 1: Assemble some of the finest minds from the business world, ie. the creative forces behind New Coke, the Edsel, and the XFL...
Step 2: Feed them copious amounts of organic lead and mercury...

Started the video, immediately stopped... 49+ minutes long is a turn off Facebook, if you're not giving out coke & popcorn.
