March 2010: "AdMob is one of the world's largest mobile advertising networks, offering solutions for discovery, branding and monetization on the mobile web. Mobile devices are a critical media platform and we are building the tools to let every business on earth leverage mobile.
We were founded in 2006 by an entrepreneur trying to solve a problem. Omar Hamoui wanted to build traffic for his mobile site. He encountered complexity and fragmentation - it was just too hard to engage users. AdMob was born to remove roadblocks and enable mobile web businesses. We’ve built technologies to enable media businesses in mobile and continue to invest in tools to enable the mobile environment.
Mobile presents a unique challenge and opportunity. We’re working on it!"http://www.admob.com/home/about
