Regulators to Probe Apple's Exclusion of Google's AdMob
iAd on Android devices???
Isn't Google doing the same thing Apple is doing? Purchasing a mobile advertising company so they can produce a greater profit for their company? Why then should they insist on another company allowing them to make money off of their product?
It isn't like AdMob designed, developed and manufactured their own hardware, software AND advertising strategy into one convenient package for consumers. Apple does. Hell, even Google doesn't make their own hardware!!!!
Google makes a TON of money off of Apple as it is with their search engine being the out-of-box default on the iPhone so why shouldn't Apple implement their own advertising system?
So yes you will see iAd used in Google apps but not vice versa.
No Google at all. Bing. Yahoo. No Google.
Why would iAd be different?
You can't call out Google for being a hypocrite on this one.
Unless you can show hard proof that, in th...
this is VERY different from admob, which is a cross platform advertising medi...
So where are all the 'keep government out of business affairs' advocates now?
That being said, Apple's been trying to use the goverment to strong arm their competitors, and karma's a bitch
Apple is the new Microsoft...
But humoring you for a minute, how is Apple a monopoly? That's what got Microsoft in trouble. And by what standard is Google not a M...
Google, you made your own bed, now sleep in it.
1) Google chose to be a competitor to Apple.
2) Google chose to buy Admob, which chose to sell itself to Google.
3) Apple has every right to keep a direct competitor from monitoring device usage statistics on their own platform. That's like CBS monitoring FOX's viewers.
Regulators can whine and moan. I'm willing to bet nothing will happen other than a lot of whining. I don't know how you can argue Google's acquisition of Admob was okay, but this isn't.
It's also ridiculous to think Google is just trying to be about "opennness" and "sharing ideas" when their MO is really to kill iOS. (Maybe they should've tone...
2. Yes, because they wanted to bring their ad services to mobile devices, NOT host their on ads on android specifically. iAd and google's buyout were for totally different reasons, unl...
Good! Apple should be investigated for everything!!!
And don't forget about all those patent lawsuits against Apple! Nokia, Kodak!

Exactly what will the end user experience?
what apple is doing is the same as what SEC is doing!
if you rich and have 25,000$ in your stock account, you can daytrades as often as you wish!
but if you poor and dont have 25,000$, you only allow to daytrades 3 times in a 5 days period!
that is like going to casino, if you bet 100$ per game, you allow to take your profits and leave anytime!
but if you bet $10 a game, you not allow to take profits until you played 8 hours??
Untill then, stop complaining about the high-stakes table getting more free alcohol then you!
Leave Apple Alone.
In short? The Media and the Government is going to make Apple survive. Not Apple itself.
Saw it coming...
I won't even lie, I from the moment I heard about the new developer terms regarding ads, thought it was violating anti-trust and competition laws. It's kinda no different than what Intel was trying to do to AMD in regards to the Video cards and their chips.
