In response to a recent revision to Apple's developer agreement for its iOS mobile operating system, a Google executive on Wednesday lashed out at the company, arguing that the new terms are "not in the best interests of users or developers." The change drawing Google's ire apparently prohibits some third-party ad networks from collecting ad performance data on the iPhone and iPad, effectively banning them from those platforms. Included in that ban, it seems, is Google's recently acquired AdMob mobile advertising arm.

Apple absolutely should be able to protect data from competitors. Just like Ford doesn't have to hand over data to GM. No other company would stand for it. Just because Google CHOSE to compete (well, copy) with Apple in terms of mobile OS, browser, OS, TV etc. doesn't mean the should get the keys to the kingdom. I used to love Google. Now, not so much. Did you know that YouTube Flash Video tries to take control of your computer's video cam and mic? Make sure you have not given Flash permission to do so. Right click a Flash component on a webpage and click settings. Make sure you have it set to 'deny' and you click the "remember" box.

Funny how Adobe and Google have screwed Apple and now Adobe's $3.5B acquisition of Macromedia Flash and Google's acquisition of AdMob now seem like an excessive waste of money?
