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.

"iOS has an installed base of 100 million

lolwut? Citations or it didn't happen.

Also, when did we start calling the iPhoneOS iOS? I find it terribly disconcerting (and won't Cisco be mad?)

Do you live in a bunker?

Steve Jobs announced the name change at Apple's World Wide Developers Conference on Monday and also announced the sale of the 100 millionth device running the OS.

The event was carried on just about every news site and tech blog on the planet - what were you doing - dozing?

Sorry, I don't rabidly follow apple news when it has nothing to do with things I care about (like gcc, cups, etc). Steve Jobs talking about new apple products ranks very low on my must-see scale, so I don't read further than the headlines.

Now that I know why I am only more irritated. Why confuse things? It's the iPhoneOS and didn't need a name change.

Well I can see the reason behind this myself : it's now iPhoneOS, iTouchOS, AND iPadOS. So iOS makes more sense, somewhat...
