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.

Google should just stop displaying links to Apple registered trademarks such as IPhone and IPad. Afterall, the Google search results page is their sandbox and they can do what they want in it!
Or they could show a single link - to a "Suggestions box" page on the Apple website. No big deal - a simple filter.

Best,
Peter.

No problem on my end. In fact, Apple should buy Cuil and gie Google a massive middle finger with a new Maps.cuil.com answer.

++ Hysterical - one question, one answer. What in the heck is "Cuil?"
Thats Apple's tactic nicely turned around on itself... don't you think?

I tried Ciul search engine. The exact result which i wanted is not on the first page.

FYI, search engines are not hardware. You need years to build them and tweak the algorithm so that it performs best.

If apple did that, they would be fingering themselves. Nothing matches Google search results as of now. Bing is closer, since they already had a huge index of web pages.

My God, never seen anything as awful as cuil. Just tried it. Seems to be a search engine. Tried "dmc tz10 review" (without quotation marks) - gave me shitty sites trying to sell the thing. Google gives me the 3 best reviews (every single aspect with test samples) in the first 5 links. And what's worse, you can't middle click a link to open in a new tab (in Chrome at least) - it just won't do it, every link you have to open in the same damn window! Now if there's a thing that would surely drive away customers (and there aren't many seeing the fanaticism of some) from Apple, this is it. Ditch google and use cuil!
