Apple putting on a show for the FTC?

Apple putting on a show for the FTC?
Despite well publicized changes in its rules to developers, Apple has continued to accept apps loaded with third party ads by Google's AdSense and AdMob. Apple will not comment on the situation, but the company did debut its iAd platform on Thursday, as we reported, and has presales of $60 million. That money is divided up with 60% going to developers and 40% going to Apple. The Cupertino based company had revised section 3.3.9 of its developer agreement to state, "You and Your Applications may not collect, use, or disclose to any third party, user or device data without prior user consent," and that while data can be delivered to an independent third party, that third party must be "...an independent advertising service provider whose primary business is serving mobile ads." However, with Apple giving the green light to recent titles like Glu Mobile's Super KO Boxing II (which has AdMob ad placing) and Elements of Design's Spawn Glow (which features AdSense placements), it would appear that the revised developer agreement is not being followed. The founder of Elements of Design, Nikolai Sander, says that Apple "is not enacting the restriction." As for the reason why, some feel that Apple is trying to look good while the FTC investigates iAd to see if the service unlawfully excludes other ad firms from collecting data from throughout the iPhone platform.

And one would think that with all that money they are making, CRAPPEL would at least fix all the FUDGED UP icrap's for free.

I think its because the FTC has to determine if Apple's rules for iAds puts an unfair advantage on Google and other competitors.

Ive got a 60-40 profit margin with an idea call iBumper, its a rubber ring that goes around your iPhone to keep it from losing signal. I figured it will take off seeing its a necessity to the proper functionality of the phone, like, the antenna, for example, would also be essential for proper functionality.

Wow, that was pretty rude. And I'll say it again. This has nothing to do with iAds. Sorry, but I don't want to read about antenna jokes from Android users everywhere I go. It's annoying.

No matter how annoying it is, you can't sit there and tell me that it is a serious problem. I have never used android in my life so don't talk to me about me being an android user. A cell phone that cannot call people.

Wow!!! Steve Jobs does such a good job tending his flock of sheep, or in other words watering and fertilizing his orchard of IBitches that Apple's "closed door" policy on its operating system, IAds, and general business practices has its followers commenting on what people can and cannot post on a comment section of a non-apple website... PATHETIC!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Face it, Apple blew it on the antenna issue, is now trying to cover it up and spin the issue, and is no getting sued. Everywhere I look I get annoyed with iphone users. So until Apple REALLY fixes the antenna issue, you will hear about it on everywww.phonearena.com page that mentions Apple. Get over yourself.....I do admire Apple for making money though. Someone get me a wool sweater....
