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.

They are not big players in open source world.

I beg to differ. Aside from webkit, there is also LLVM which is a *massive* improvement on gcc. There are also several minor projects such as libdispatch, launchd, darwin and so on that they have released as open source, even though they didn't have to.

They may be more evil than Microsoft in some respects (i.e. they're control freaks), but they tend to be very good on the developer side of things.
