don't be too hard on him, I might have taken that long to formulate that whole opening gambit. more on topic tho, I think atomic web browser is great, complete with adblock, just a pity no default browser can be chosen.
I was talking about Admob ads, which you can use in an iOS app right ?
I've been reading a lot recently how Apple's app policies are only to make money off apps, but if you can still make and publish apps that Apple doesn't see any money from, it kinda ruins that arguement i think.?
I see where you are coming from but your logic is out:
"since he likely doesn't care about the non-Google Android devices"
- sure he does , he wants to show that android has a massive market share so people actually start designing better apps for it. Just like ES said in his statement recently.
