Now, Apple is crowing about their new ad blocking features in the next release of iOS, but they will not be blocking iAds. This great new feature merely blocks ads for companies that have not paid Apple to advertise. Once you pay Apple for the privilege, Apple will guarantee that the user will not be able to block the ad. Since this whole advertising scheme is built into the OS and not Safari, it will be very difficult to defeat. I am growing to regret my purchase of an iPhone 6.
As far as getting all sanctimonious, when was the last time you really heard anything about what Hams did in a crisis, other than on vary narrowly focused outlets like Slashdot or Amateur Radio Newsline? It's not like we're parading in the streets crowing about our accomplisments. Just a little acknowledgement is all we want, and then only because Amateur Radio is largely invisible so people think it's dying. It's not. There are more licensed operators world wide now then ever before.
Get a grip, and get real. Seriously.
