Let's talk ad-blocking.

With the arrival of iOS 9, ad-blocking is coming to mobile in a big way, and it's causing a lot of talk all over the web. It is highlighting the internal struggle some feel about the practice, but also the hypocrisy of some of its staunchest proponents. So far, it seems like the real 'bloodbath' isn't taking place where people thought it would be - namely, publishers - but among personalities.

awesome that I can now block ads on my phone, something I couldn't do last week. Something I've been doing on my PC and Mac for, what, eight or nine years now?

Cost of running iOS. We could and still do this on other mobile platforms for years.
