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.

We've seen this before and we called it Microsoft.


Come on! MS doesn't anything to do with it. They own just an operating system. They not dictate the hardware platform and what apps you are entitled or not to install. Nor do they dictate what APIs and tools the developers are allowed to use.

Except they do on the XBox ;) I'm not sure I see much distinction between what gaming consoles have been doing for years, and what Apple is doing now.

I pretty much refuse to buy game consoles for the same reason. I love to pick up the older ones for a couple bucks at yard sales... long after some company out there cares enough to tell me what I can or can't do with them.

Even as a hardened Linux user, you can't blame Microsoft for the market that is like that. Nintendo and Sony have an even tighter control. It's because the games on those devices have to correspond to certain standards. And most console games are integrated and thought through quite well(i.e frame rate problems just don't exist on those systems).

Just compare the ports of the same games to PC... Most are just badly ported and released.
