Apple Posts Two New iPad Television Ads, 'Alive' and 'Together'




Apple tonight posted two new television spots for the iPad and the iPad mini on its YouTube page. The two ads, titled 'Alive' and 'Together', highlight some of the 300,000 apps made specifically for the iPad, using a variety of words to describe them.

Apps shown in the ads include AmpliTube, Style.com, GarageBand, TED, iMovie, iBooks, Dinosaur Zoo, Toca Hair Salon, The Lonely Beast ABC, Brian Cox's Wonders of the Universe, Vimeo, Rockmate, Glow Hockey 2 HD, and FaceTime.

Apple has launched a companion billboard campaign, as well.

If anyone can identify some of the other apps shown in the ad, I'll add them to the article.

Not bad, but I think the recent Google ads have also been quite good.

Sarcasm? It's been awhile since there was an ad for anything but the ipad.

No sarcasm intended. I see more for the iPhone, tbh.

Irony, not sarcasm.

It's not ALIVE until I see an iPad 5 with thinner and sexier bezel.

It's going to be a LOUD update and I prepare to dig DEEP into my wallet for it

As much as I usually like Apples commercials. I'm not really a fan of either of these.

I agree. I hope I never see these adds on TV. I'm usually a fan of Apple ads but these two were awful.

Simple and to the point, as usual. There's also a sort of grace to the ads that I like very much.

I like these, but they should yell "iPad" at the end.

I find these very distasteful. Ads aren't as sharp as when SJ had the final word.

The ads are not meant for Steve Jobs cultist, they are meant for normal consumers with normal lives.

Right. The guy who envisioned the products and drove his design team to meet his vision and turned the company into a juggernaut should be left in the past because Tim `Mr. Logistics' is better at understanding consumers.
