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.

This is just Apple being paranoid about competitors spying on their future product plans, and not some devious "this is our sandbox, and you can't play in it" move.


So you're saying Apple doesn't have the power to control what apps their own employees install during testing of unreleased products?

And Apple has no way to control the information that their prototype phones give out to apps that are installed on them?

I would expect Apple would put some safeguards into their prototype/unreleased products to prevent such a thing from occurring. You make it sound like they're complete idiots and unable to use their own developed products, thus they must write legal terms into their developer agreements to protect themselves from doing stupid things with software written by 3rd parties.
