Google's AdMob Slams Apple's Updated iPhone Developer Terms

Apple closed business model get yet another slamming and this time from Google's AdMob.

"Let's be clear. This change is not in the best interests of users or developers. In the history of technology and innovation, it's clear that competition delivers the best outcome," AdMob founder Omar Hamoui wrote in a blog post. "Artificial barriers to competition hurt users and developers and, in the long run, stall technological progress."
The changes, first reported by The Wall Street Journal's MediaMemo blog on Wednesday, would require developers to get Apple's consent before they created apps that collected, used, or disclosed user or device data to third parties.
"Without Apple's prior written consent, You may not use third party analytics software in your application to collect and send device data to a third party for aggregation, processing, or analysis," according to the revised policy.
