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.

Logic? Of course they don't apply to Apple. The TOS is between Apple and the dev.

Sorry, I should have been more clear. It's not really easy for me to write in English. Of course this SDK license itself does not apply to Apple, but Apple could still respect your privacy in the same way even if they're not contractually obligated to do so.

Apple is no third party and Iads will of course track every click you do.

Tracking clicks is no problem at all. The problem is that every user is tracked just by visiting sites (or using apps) that contain ads.

Apple controls and stores everything you do on a iNoControl device (Ads, notifications, Itunes, etc.)
Far worse then Google, because Apple usally has your Credit Card number and knows exactly who you are.

They store everything I do? Notifications? Really? How do you know?

Because they are kind hearts and they care very much about their users? You got to grow up.

Have you seen the Genius feature on Apple's products? Where do you think they get that info from? That is done by mining all details about you.

All push notifications are tracked 100% of the time, since they do come from Apple's servers...

Exactly, how can you be sure they don't (unless you jailbreak and void warranty or possible even brick your iDevice).
