Lots of new ads coming to iPhones and iPads

By Joe Kukura on Nov 24, 2014

Only at Apple would $42 billion in iPhone and iPad revenue over three months be considered disappointing. Even though Apple has the magic touch at inventing and selling fabulous mobile devices, these fabulous mobile devices do not make much advertising revenue. Simply put, people are not clicking on ads on their iPhones and iPads nearly as much as they click on ads they see on their desktop and laptop computers. To Apple, all of this "lost" revenue is a disappointment they feel must be corrected in short order. Their remedy to this "problem" is something called iAds — a product whose name I have to be very careful to not misspell. Some iAds are just like Internet banner ads, but they will pop up within the apps you use on your iOS mobile device instead of on websites you visit. Other iAds

"If you do not breathe through writing, if you do not cry out in writing, or sing in writing, then don't write, because our culture has no use for it." - Anais Nin "I write to taste life twice"--Anais Nin I am a wife, mother, educator, advocate who might occasionally--ok, more oft than not-- feel too much, think too much, cuss too much, over analyze, over-react, overly sensitive--but I don't know any other way to be--that's just me. If you find any of my articles witty, enjoyable, provocative, infuriating, aggravating, insightful or educational--then my work here is half way done.
