What do you think about iAd. Will be this feature or bugging feature to end user? Will Apple provide any kind of setting which enable / disable the adds?

KD – We think iAd is a smart idea and it will definitely have all the ad management features including ability to enable / disable the ads. The feature may not be a bugging feature – YouTube Videos now have ads inserted at the bottom – We do not mind it.

Monetization of Mobile Apps is a strong market need. iAd can help address that need to a great extent for many independent developers.
