Google This was inevitable. AdMob founder and CEO Omar Hamoui has responded to Apple blocking AdMob from the iOS ecosystem. Unsurprisingly, Hamoui isn't particularly amused, claiming that not only is it bad for competition, it will also hurt developers and users alike.

It's the way of the modern, capitalist world I'm afraid. Advertising gets business revenue and the internet is no different.

I can put up with it but as long as the adverts don't go too deep into what I'm reading. For example, I've seen ads actually under a forum post like it's part of the post, which is very annoying.

I'd say it's typical of Apple to do such a thing with them blocking AdMob because it's just anti-competitive, and we know they don't like to compete or give choice.
