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.

But the bottom line is we're free to take our business elsewhere.


People involved here are:
- End users: do you really think that end user will be pissed that Apple limit Google to gather data about how they use their device? I don’t think so... but I’m for freedom....

- Developer: You think that developer will cut an important source of money because... Google can’t make money?? Does money from adMob such bigger than what iAd promise? I know some dev than don’t even care... they just want the easier and lesser intrusive way to put ad in their apps.

By the way in fact adMob is not blocked, they just have to buy data from third-party...

If you want to make your own rules, just built your own company... but warning, its not that easy, and then you will not appreciate comments like yours... think about that.

Wait for next revision of ToS. You might find this
"Independent ad vendors cannot sell their analytics or any sort of collected data to any non-independent ad agencies except for Apple."
