    iAd
    Just the feature we have all been waiting for - Adverts.

    Adverts have already screwed TV so much it is now unwatchable - now they are planning the same on iPad (and iPhone).

    True, we get multi-tasking, but what is the point if all the processor power is wasted on adverts?

    Anyone else disappointed by OS4 ?

    It has something to do with embedding adverts into Apps, which implies that processing power will be wasted, slowing the App down - just to provide adverts which the users don't want anyway.

    This is all I have found about it so far

    Already is a post on these forums about it here. And there I made a very long long post explaining what I think about iad. And in short I think iad is a necessary evil but I am very glad it is Apple doing this and not a 3rd party like Google.

    I watched the video about this announcement, and it seems very unobtrusive during normal use, but very powerful if you want to use it. It looks like a win/win to me. but what do I know

    This is really nothing new anyone who has used Droid or Cydia is already familiar with these types of AD's Apple fanboys (no pun intended) need to get over it, If it brings more cheaper and free apps to the App store that's good for everyone.

    I can remember when television channels didn't have their logo or run mini ads in the lower right hand corner of the screen. Advertising of this nature will be coming to the mobile device market soon.

    Ads are a part of life. That is fact. Apple just made this necessary evil much more regulated, prettier and interactive. And non flash based. And I think that is a win for everyone.

    I know many people can not see this. But I do.

    I'm with you on that, I'm sure within a few months there will be hack to block the ads.

    So I'm wondering... if I choose to run no apps except what came with the iPhone as shipped from Asia ie: Mail, Calendar, Safari, etc... do I have to watch iAds? If the answer is no, then I see no issue with iAds. If the answer is yes, then it's Socialism and I have no interest in it. If I choose to run no 3rd party apps, why should I be forced to watch iAds to support the developers?
    Never judge a man, untill you have walked a mile in his shoes...
    That way you'll be a mile away from him, and you'll have his shoes.

    3rd party apps. Steve mentions it in the Keynote. Something about how some are already adding them to their apps (especially the free or cheap ones). The point is if they're going to be there, make them useful, powerful, and enjoyable.
    64GB iPhone 6, 64GB iPad Air 2.

    Reminder: Please include your Mac's specs. This will make it much easier for the other members to assist you.

    Thanks for the info. If I have a choice, then the iAds don't bother me that much. Much appreciated.
