Google upset with Apple's new advertising rules

Google appears to be upset with Apple's new rules for its iAd advertising network. Apparently, under the new terms, developers will not be able to use Google's AdMob technology to advertise on Apple's products.

"Apple proposed new developer terms on Monday that, if enforced as written, would prohibit app developers from using AdMob and Google's advertising solutions on the iPhone. These advertising related terms both target companies with competitive mobile technologies (sch as Google), as well as any other company whose primary business is not serving mobile ads," Omar Hamoui, AdMob's founder said in a blog post. "This change is not in the best interests of users or developers," he added.

"We'll be speaking to Apple to express our concerns about the impact of these terms," Omar said at the end of his post.

According to Reuters, AdMob said that during the month of April, one third of the advertisements it served were for Apple products running the iPhone OS, including the iPad, iPod touch, and iPhone.
