Apple While we were al busy getting knickers in twists over section 3.3.1 of the new iPhone developer agreement, Apple hoped to sneak another, possibly more far-reaching change past us. All Things Digital, however, got hold of section 3.3.9, which could effectively kill all third party ad networks - granting an insurmountable advantage to Apple's own iAd network.

By the time Apple acquired the mobile ad firm and rumors started to appear about it's new mobile ad network, the first thing that came to my mind was some kind of "the only ad network to be permitted" in the platform, and looks like it was the case...
...also, it doesn't make anyone more privacy safe, because Apple itself can do any kind of dubious things with your data... well, not only them, but anyone who apple approves.

...But in a long run, there may be larger implications. No game services besides Apple's, nor any kind of complex and social services...

In barely 25 years, the original Macintosh ad because the biggest irony of all... (even more than: ).

Not sure if even a new CEO could make Apple a better (in the "don't be evil"-way) company, it looks like it's beyond any hope.
