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.

... is the answer to "Well, I guess it's Apple platform. If they can kill the competition by simply adding a line to the secret developer agreement, why not do it?" Apple's going to be spending a lot of time in court, since Google and others are unlikely to swallow this kind of thing without a fight.
