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.

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..
