Apple’s much discussed (and incredibly pricy) advertising platform starts today. iAds are starting to roll out, spearheaded by Nissan and their electric car, the Leaf. You can see most of what their iAd does in the YouTube video above.
These things really do seem to be complete apps in and of themselves, with some pretty advanced controls.
Word is, the ads will be going international “in a few months.”
My biggest concern is what this will do to your bandwidth. Now that many people are stuck on a limited bandwidth account due to AT&T putting data caps in place, how many of my precious bytes will be expended on an ad for something I don’t care about?
