Apple While we were al busy getting knickers in twists over section 3.3.1 of the new iPhone developer agreement, Apple hoped to sneak another, possibly more far-reaching change past us. All Things Digital, however, got hold of section 3.3.9, which could effectively kill all third party ad networks - granting an insurmountable advantage to Apple's own iAd network.

That should be their new slogan given recent developments. It's too bad because I like many of their products.

Some of their products are nice if you make abstraction of lock ins, dictatorship, monopoly, Apple being jerks and trying to screw customers and developers altogether.

If they will persist in thei current behavior, I will never ever buy any goddam Apple product nor I will develop anything for their shitty platforms.

Apple restricting the sharing of your device ID with third party app's is a MUST HAVE privacy feature. Do you REALLY want random apps on your system sharing information about you?

If you want to bitch about something bitch about the fact that Apple is using your device ID, don't bitch about the fact that it's restricting it.
