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.

"Whats anticompetitive is having Google glean all the information about your latest and greatest platform in-order to compete with their own product.


Wow, your definition of "anti-competitive" is prett much completely backwards there...
"

So letting your competition have access to all your customers is a good thing and should be encouraged? Business is general is anticompetitive, Apple isn't in business to promote competition.

The other thing to remember here is the new rule doesn't apply to independent ad networks. It only applies to ad networks owned by mobile hardware or OS manufactures.
