Anti-Competitive AND Potentially Creepy – @drbarnard


If you think about it, Google (via Ad Mob) being able to collect specific usage data about iOS would be a HUGE competitive advantage in shaping their own Android strategy.

Excellent article.

The baseline is Google (through AdMob) AREN’T been locked out of Advertising on the iOS. However they ARE being locked out of advertising in the way that has made them one of the most profitable companies around.

If Google divested themselves of Android, they would likely still be able to get the analytics – like other Ad Networks will be.
