What _really_ gets me is the "what applies to you, doesn’t apply to us" part.

"any advertising service provider owned by or affiliated with a developer or distributor of mobile devices, mobile operating systems or development environments other than Apple would not qualify as independent"

Wow, just wow. It’s like Apple are taunting the judges.

But in this case, you bought your house and your lawn from Apple and THEY are telling you that you can't allow another dog to shit on your lawn.
