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.

have started to come off. So have the masks. Apple is starting to show us the rotten side, full of worms. It will be a good battle since it is all about survival. One of these two is going to come out with some very deep scars (financial). I am sure that had it not been for the fear of backlash, Apple would completely eliminate google from search providers.


That's right. Apple protects privacy rights, while Google spies on you and you love Google.

Pucker up.

Ahh, you see Google doesn't just spy on me, they let any third party spy on me, regardless of mobile offerings.

Completely different.

Now enlighten me, how Google lets others spy on me? Do they sell the statistics in their raw form? Do they sell statistics at all?

I guess you missed the part in the developer agreement where Apple and only Apple was given the right to collect such "sensitive" data.

Furthermore, the Google ads where perfectly fine [and encouraged since they attracted more developers] for Apple right until Apple introduced its own competing solution.
