Apple When Apple announced its iAd mobile advertising initiative, many of us wondered how this would effect other mobile advertising agencies on the iPhone, and more specifically, Google's AdMob. Well, now we know: Apple has revised its iOS developer agreement to specifically lock out Google's AdMod. And then people wonder why Apple is no longer the darling of the geek world.

ya but here is the messed up part. Remember the EU (using most recent examples) making forcing MS to provide choices?


Apple's still not quite big enough to be considered a monopoly yet, and underhanded business practices aren't illegal so long as your not a monopoly, there're just underhanded. If enough competition can form against Apple then they may be forced to back off a bit without the government doing anything. And until Apple does something illegal then the government shouldn't do anything.
