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.

Most of you people don't even have a clue what the motive behind this is, or are just being disingenuous.

It has nothing to do with Google being able to make money selling advertising in iPhone apps. Apple doesn't care. It has everything to do with Apple not wanting mobile device competitors (which Google is) with their own analytics arms (which Google has) to be able to use those resources to gain information about unreleased products that Apple is still testing; which is what started this whole brouhaha in the first place when Flurry blabbed about how it detected iPads on the Apple campus before the device was ever officially announced.

This is just Apple being paranoid about competitors spying on their future product plans, and not some devious "this is our sandbox, and you can't play in it" move.
