Very good point Harry: for the sake of perceived "business freedom" people all too often advocate for big business to be left alone, when the ultimate victim is small buisness. And guess who employs the most people, puts food on tables of families everywhere and generates the most tax revenue: small buisness.
Just came across another story on the iAd (so sick and tired of the i* BS): [fastcompany.com...]
I need to further study the details, but again this is quite anti-competitive, for this reason (correct me if I am wrong): basically apple is saying, advertise through our system and get exact app sales figures, but use a competing system and you will not have access to this extra data.
Yes, I think I've understood it. And again, I am just appalled. That would be like G saying, use G Checkout on your ecommerce site and get more data from adword than people using paypal on their site.
