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.

The other way to look at this. Google is driving Apple to be more competitive. Apple has to produce a better product focus more on what consumers want, open the AppStore more, fight a little dirtier. Business is not warm and fuzzy. It's cold, ruthless, and I for one want both Google and Apple to keep this up. It will drive both to be better.

I mean just look at MS, they didn't have any competition for most of the 2000's and their products suffered because of it. It wasn't until Apple, Linux, Google, came along that they started improving their products.
