How Apple could slay Google

"Web ads are a noxious weed choking the intelligence and sophistication out of our society’s media, and Google is making its massive fortunes delivering this scourge." So says blogger Daniel Eran Dilger, right here.

I have long used various ad blocker plugins for Firefox. But Dilger makes the argument that Google and adware together in fact do "evil." He thinks Apple can deliver the death blow.

Great article. Thanks, Leif of pattern.com for passing along such fascinating reading.
