Word comes from the Financial Times today that US regulators are planning an antitrust investigation into Apple's iAd mobile advertising platform. At issue: the iAd terms and conditions that allow Apple to shut out Google entirely from its potent ecosystem.

I knew it was only a matter of time before the FTC got wind of the way iAds and Safari Reader work.

I don't get what Apple was thinking and how they couldn't see this coming... You can't just update your TOS and expect to get a monopoly on advertising for millions of devices without anyone caring.

I don't understand, Google did the same thing by acquiring AdMob and using AdMob to acquire even smaller companies, basically forming their own monopoly. The only thing Apple did was flat out say we own the ads, while Google snakes it's way through sucking up all the smaller ad companies one by one, eliminating all competition.

The issue isn't owning lots of ad companies. The issue is that Apple might be shutting out any competitors.

Google does not shut out competing ad agencies before they buy them.
