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.

The ads. Can't they both lose?

Plus a billion, but really unlikely. I liked Google's ads because they were more targeted, and less intrusive than any others search ads. I additionally like them now, because they are easy to block, for the wise, yet help subsidize the creation of useful programs.

When you think about it, Google is really just like the lottery, a tax on people that don't know any better which still benefits those who do.

I happen to be a iphone/android developer who gets paid by these ads. Without the ads, I cannot develop _free_ apps for your pleasure.

Can one really make more than $3/month through ads ?

You seem to assume much, believing that I enjoy your app. I don't even know what your app is.
