Fairly, you should be comparing the iphone to the internet as platforms. Apple is locking google (and others) out of the iphone for advertising. They have the only keys to the castle in that world. On the other hand, who says I need to create custom search using only google? Bing and Yahoo offer similar choices. Google might be the giant, but they don't have singular control of the internet.
