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.

What is it with these blog sites now that they have to all report on the same thing with their own biased editorial content thrown in? It doesn't matter now that the site's name is Engadget, Gizmodo, OSNews, etc. They all opinionize on the same thing.

When will we get real editorial content with relevant subject matter that doesn't have a biased view one way or another. Blog stories look more like one big message board post with a bunch of lemmings posting in the comment section like they actually know how to run a business in this capatalistic society. I wish people would get over their fetish of thinking they know what's the best way of selling technology.

I like Apple and all, but if I were CEO I wouldn't have the balls to do what Apple does. What's interesting is that they are able to be hugely sucessfull without restricting other companies from coming in and attempting to replicate their steps(unlike Microsoft of old). It's the reason why so many entities (companies, bloggers, commenters) generate so much Apple friction. They're frustrated that they aren't as nimble to change or create change enough to generate demand.

The day Apple restricts me from buying a competitor's product to enjoy the latest that technology offers is the day I stop buying their stuff.

As far as ads go, why do us geeks care?? The vast majority of us who run Firefox has Adblock Plus. I thought ads were the devil. I'm not happy with iAds or the Admob invading my iSpace.

Why let amateur journalists (bloggers) bait you into building social bunkers around the gadgets you like? I say give them less clicks to force better content but that's not going to happen because people like to complain.
