Google This was inevitable. AdMob founder and CEO Omar Hamoui has responded to Apple blocking AdMob from the iOS ecosystem. Unsurprisingly, Hamoui isn't particularly amused, claiming that not only is it bad for competition, it will also hurt developers and users alike.

Poundsmack has an excellant point. There are rules about advertising and I don't believe you are allowed to discriminate. Remember, airwaves are public property being RENTED by corporations. I dont think these rules have been applied to Internet ads before, but then the Internet wasn't primarily wireless. Apples iPhones are mostly wireless. And before the fanbois get here, remember, the smartphone market is very small right now and Apple is a BIG part of that. And they are using their entrenched product to dictate industry policy. Whats worse is that they are doing it in a discriminatory manner. This may fly in the US for a while, but I bet the EU is gonna get real interested here soon.
