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.

No, you are missing the point. The above poster said nothing about monopoly. He's trying to say the typical, "I own it, I can do whatever I want with it," line

Really? I could have sworn he was simply saying that Apple tells you that nobody else's dog can shit on your lawn... anyhow, not important.

suggesting that its the developers who have a right to determine who can and cannot be on apple's platform.

Would be nice if the user could indicate who can/can't shit on the lawn, no? What good does it do the user to allow Apple to dump ads on them, but not Google.

Well, he used an analogy for that. One that proved the opposite of his point. People buy property every day which comes with terms that say they cannot do whatever they want with their own property.

Actually, most HOAs (what we call them where I live) are made up of a board of actual home owners who represent the community's interests. Usually these individuals get together and vote on the rules - and they are usually the same people who will benefit from the rules. Often times, these members are the more controlling individuals in the community, especially the older, retired ones who have nothing better to do other than tell others what they can/can't do.

FWIW, I have lived in these types of communities, and would not likely purchase a home in one again in my life.
