Many here would simply ask you Pri just why are you complaining about the topic mutating when you yourself are readily replying to what I have posted and thus you too have indulged in the off topic activity.
Apple's new mobile advertising platform for iPhone and iPad applications, iAd, is reportedly under scrutiny after recent changes to Apple's developer agreement,according to The Wall Street Journal. The revisions forbid Apple developers from sharing data collected from users (iPhone and iPad owners) with third parties.This policy, some argue, could make it impossible for third-party advertisers to target advertising to consumers, thereby giving Apple's iAd program a potential competitive advantage. For example, an iPhone game developer could use a third-party advertising platform (other than iAds) to subsidize a game with ads. But without access to end-user data from Apple about who that game user is an advertiser stands to make significantly less ad revenue because it can't tailor ads specifically for that individual's geographic location, for example.Perhaps the biggest focus of a potential antitrust investigation into Apple's practices would focus on the company's decision to reject applications for the iTunes App Store that are developed with cross-platform development software. This means that developers working on porting their apps to multiple mobile platforms such as Android, Blackberry, iPhone OS and Windows Phone 7 must create one version of the app using cross-platform tools, and then create iPhone apps in the iPhone OS' native computer language, Objective-C. This could be seen as anti-competitive behavior if smaller developers are choosing to write iPhone apps over developing for other platforms, because of burdensome upfront expenses such as the time and labor needed to create two versions of the same application.
Apple will be delivering 1500 API's in the new 4.0 Software Update for iPhone OS.
The U.S. Department of Justice and the Federal Trade Commission may launch an antitrust investigation into Apple's mobile business practices within days.
