    surely there will be a way around this as soon as cydia hits 4.0
    If you can see this you are one of the many people who can see this.

    People wanting to get rid of the obtrusive spyware that is iAd will be flocking to the jail break community.

    Dumb move, Jobs, although the money you make from this will surely put your mind to rest...

    FFS, go watch the keynote. iAds make the ads more unobtrusive than they are today. They also ensure that the ad will not interrupt your game or app. That's it. It's a better framework. No one is forcing you to click on apps, or putting them in your springboard.

    Thanks for being one more guy who can't listen through a simple presentation.

    Default EFFFFF iAd!!!
    iAds are going to be annoying ugh!! I hate the minimal amount of ads that haunt me already lol. 1 ad every 3 minutes Jesus are they crazy?! Apple is getting too big for their britches lol and I am getting tired of their dictatorship-like attitudes. iPhone 4.0 has all the goodies that we have been using with our jailbroken devices forever now lol. Way to copy Apple! Steve Jobs is a *****!

    I hope they've got an app to "GET RID" of that!

    This is fine as long as they are not intrusive like Flash ads on the internet. If they are banner like and ONLY open if I touch the ad then fine. If they automatically open then no. Also I think this skews a little depending on the dev. There are FREE games in the App Store that do have ads and DLC. This helps fight piracy on one level and lets the devs double, triple and quadruple dip. I kind of feel more small time devs will take this route and the big time companies like the EAs, Activisions etc. will go with pay to download and include ads in those games as well because they can do that and get away with it.

    this is apparently industry standard.

    iAd is just another way that Apple is trying to control thier users.

    way to go Apple. 1 more nail in the coffin. This new 4G iPhone had better be spectacular. The more Jobs trys to control things, the less likely I will stay a iPhone user.

    yeah, and I'm surfing this site using a widescreen computer and the ad is freaking tiny...and it only shows when I use IE...and not at all when i use Firefox

    whereas the iPhone as we all know has a tiny little screen. any ad at all will take up valuable space...and it's annoying.

    I need to see how they apply iAd, but it sounds like a big deal killer. Still all speculation though ain't it?

    typical reaction of a Apple fanboy. critizice Czar Jobs...or Apple itself and people get sensitive that we aren't all holding hands and chanting in a circle around a partially eaten Apple.

    I run Windows because that is what the world uses. Not because I want to appear to be elite and all knowing, or any of the other misc crap reasons that people get all uppity about regarding their precious Macs and the warm fuzzy feeling they get in their very core when they try to browbeat someone who doesn't hold to their computer of choice.


    I own a iPhone currently as it was the best phone on the market when I went shopping. It isn't right now. Not by a longshot...even with it Jailbroken. I've played with several of the various Google OS phones and they are leaps and bounds better than the iPhone. And that is before you even start messing with them...which BTW google is cool with. You don't have to fight through loopholes and software cracks to achieve the effect you want.

    I think it's great. Let's user stay in app while viewing ad.
