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.

Another apple fanboy... sigh...

All their comment have been in apple related post and only praising the "think like big brother" company...

Lol, sure the « not think like me, should be banished » is a better attitude... the content of the arguments don’t matter....

And for sure Apple related post are *strangely* the one with the more disinformation, you know like saying something wrong and pretend to be true... like the fact that Apple did block adMob where in fact adMob will just have to get data via a third-party...

Or even pretending that adMob have a legitimate right to access to data of other platform... (so why Google is making a me-too platform??? but sure good people should not ask, google is THE good guy and Apple is big brother...)

So to be clear: in the light of your argument, and as not saying crap on Apple mean be an Apple « fanboy » thus I’m then proud to be such a fanboy... after 10 years of working on Linux, it’s cool to not be only an « open-source Geek ». But I’m being sick of this world... Remind me the story about the 60’s and how it end...
Who is the fanboy indeed...

Well.. true to be tell, admob and iad are the same thing.. only driver by 2 different companies and thats all, i bet google wouldnt/couldnt do anything if any company wants to put their adv plataform on android since its open source... they would just gonna need to make the api available to the devs.

So.. if all you ppl can say if.. oh, i bet google would do the same if apple try to port their adv plataform to android dont know how android works.

and btw.. been a linux user and like how apple manage their plataform.. is kind of a contradiction, apple make microsoft blush how they are managing their plataform and developers.

And about the mail thing when you setup android.. sure you have to get an gmail account.. but other than that, you can just get k9 and use w/e mail you want... so, wow.. vendor lock down.. yeah, like apple not letting their user to choose w/e they want flash or not or making the development locked to their plataform and not using third apps dev tools who could also compile to other plataforms.. yeah, good comparition..
