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.

You mention some interesting tidbits I've never heard or read before.

No MS just modified the OS to break 3rd party apps and pushed their own apps instead. "DOS isn't done till Lotus won't run"

I would love to read more about this specific DOS/Lotus sabotage.

Or they start joint development of an OS, encourage all their ISV and 3rd party developers to switch to it, only to pull out at the last minute and push a completing platform. Oh and they're the only developer providing apps. Kill a lot of ISV and putting the rest several years behind.

You're referring to OS/2, right? would love some in-depth material about these tactics too.

Or best of all enter into an agreement to develop office applications for a brand new GUI based computer, insist they need source level access to the new system and then take not just the concepts but the actual API and develop a completing GUI system. That runs all their applications.

Didn't know they demanded Source Code and 'borrowed' the API. Again, any articles on these specifics?
