Apple Posts New iPad Ad "Learn"




Apple has posted a new television ad for the iPad on their website and YouTube channel. This ad focuses on the iPad's use as an educational tool.

Quote:
Are you curious about new ideas? Do you want to learn a new language. Or just a new word. Maybe you want to know more about anatomy. Or astronomy. You could master something new or uncover a hidden talent. There's never been a better time to learn.
As usual, Apple focuses their iPad ads on user experience.

I can picture kids fighting over who gets to use the iPad first in class.

I watch iPad ads and think about Android fanboys.. They just don't get it. It's like Steve said - "They are not even playing the same game."

Anybody care to help?

You know what? I've really been wanting an iPad since March 2010. Every time I go to an Apple store, I get ready to pull the trigger but end up leaving empty handed. I already have my MBP and iPhone 4, so I really didn't need an iPad. But ever since HP had that Touchpad fire sale, I really started thinking about getting a tablet. At $99, the Touchpad was a steal.

Sadly, I didn't get one.

Just now, this commercial pushed me enough to actually go buy one ... a reurb one. Gotta save some money for that iPad 3!

I enjoy Star Walk far more than Solar Walk.

In Japanese/Chinese it means Friend.

In Japanese at least, the character alone is read as "Tomo" or "Yuu". Usually used along 達" which reads "Tomodachi".

That's cool but a name of the app would be even better...

FYI: You can buy an Apple iPad in the parking lot for $300 that will work just as well as that Touchpad. Just don't remove the bubble wrap until you get home or you'll spoil the surprise.

I bought one in the parking lot three months ago and have yet to unwrap the bubbles. In fact, I am starting to enjoy looking at bubbles. Maybe I'll just see it as is and put the thing on display. It might be the best $300 I've ever spent.

Interesting. Samsung, HTC or Motorola tries to make you want to buy their tablet. Apple makes you want to an iPad to use great software.

I don't think it is. Pretty sure it's Skeletal 3D. Great app, I have it!
