No more wasting your money collecting all those apps just so you can watch the lovely, revolutionary, magical, emotional, whatever-happened-to-those iAds contained therein.
Apple’s iAd platform is here, but the advertisements themselves are still few and far between. According to the Wall Street Journal, Apple’s desire to closely control the creation of the ads has slowed their arrival.
At D8, Steve Jobs said that Apple’s move to block outside ad agencies from collecting user information was made to protect user privacy, not to box out the competition. He promised that Apple would allow other advertising networks to collect user statistics, effectively letting them compete with Apple’s own iAd.
