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.

Ads ruin iPhone

I think anything that encourages advertising in iPhone apps is a bad thing. Ads negatively impact user experience when inside programs. I don't care who the provider is, whether it's Apple or Google or someone else; keep ads out of apps.

Just look up a screenshot of Videora Video Converter if you want to see where the slippery slope leads.
