Blocking ads

Via Glenn, comes mention of Apple blocking ads:

Consumers will like this feature, and it won’t cost Apple anything; the company makes its money off of it’s outstanding hardware, not ads. Meanwhile, it will hurt one of their main rivals in the primordial battle for dominance between Silicon Valley’s tech giants: Google. Which does make money off of ads. For Apple, what’s not to like about this development?

I’ve joked a few times that Microsoft should take the Apple business model and block Itunes, other browsers, and google ads. But they’re about 5 years late on that now.

    Microsoft tried it in the 90s (sort of). It didn’t end well for them.
