Apple When Apple announced its iAd mobile advertising initiative, many of us wondered how this would effect other mobile advertising agencies on the iPhone, and more specifically, Google's AdMob. Well, now we know: Apple has revised its iOS developer agreement to specifically lock out Google's AdMod. And then people wonder why Apple is no longer the darling of the geek world.

I'm pretty sure it will be justified because apple is a business and the iphone is there product and they don't have to let anyone else play in their little sandbox.


Yes they do! They're Apple. What's wrong with you people?! They should rename their sandbox to iBeach and let everyone frolic there for free! And of course it should be a Unicorn friendly iBeach. And Google should be allowed to stand at the entrance and collect the intimate details of everyone who comes to play so they can let them know about all the cool carnival rides they have on their own gBeach. Apple shouldn't be worrying about ROI or such things, they already have enough resources to keep iBeach free and open for ever, so it should all be for the betterment of humanity! And other companies of course - there's no reason why other's shouldn't be allowed to profit from stuff Apple build on iBeach, just not Apple themselves...
