Hey at least with Apple you don't have the carrier logos plastered all over the hardware:

I'm surprised that they've made an ad about a minor feature like this. The ad's music and simple presentation fit the usual Apple style, but is this really the way to make people drool over an iPhone? Ads that say little but get into your subconscious might be more effective.

Is this finally something that we can truly say "Steve would never let happen"? (He was, after all, vegetarian.)

Ok, so why are the pictures in the turkey ad full screen, whereas the pictures I have taken on my 5 have the black bars on the top and bottom?

Digging the orchestra one. The music in their iPhone 5 commercials has this subtle feel of excitement/urgency/tension from the "up down up down" of the melody. Love it!

Zoomed in?

Or pre cropped to be the correct resolution?

Why does it matter? Don't you want to know what network you're connected to?

I for one love the apple commercials. I'm a sucker for em!! My wife can't believe it because I don't easily get sucked in to corporate advertising and their mind games.

short-change advertising

As usual, apple takes a novel implementation, and makes it look extremely archaic. They make photostream look like a simple facebook-type sharing feature, when it's really much more. This is why apple loses credibility and short-changes their innovative ideas. Stupid stupid stupid ad campaign. They would be worth a $trillion by now if they did a better job explaining why their implementations are better than the ones that have been out there for 4+ years.

Now I have to download the google YouTube app to play embedded video? That's Busch league.
I don't have this issue on other sites like autoblog.com.

Turkey is Right!

These ads are not up to Apple's usual standards.

Easy, invest $79.99 on a lifeproof case. I swear by them. Completely dust proof. Unlike the otter box and you wanna die when you take it out and you can't figure out why it has tiny scratches and scuff marks on it. Trust me, lifeproof is well worth the money.

They could release 2 new ads for the iPhone on the week when everyone is off but they can't release iTunes 11.

A little more humorous than most others.

Some, of course, will dislike this and herald these ads as the end, blah blah blah, etc.

I like 'em.

That thanksgiving commercial made me cringe. Seriously? A token black couple shows up to thanksgiving with their son? As if they don't have a family of their own they would rather spend time with. So contrived and condescending.

Noise Cancellation

They used a noise cancellation chip from a new company. And it sounds like a beta chip. It's hopeless compared to Nokia's HD calling and noise cancellation technology.
Calls from my Nokia to another Nokia sound so crisp, calls to an iPhone 5 have the HD calling but sound is fuzzy and the background noise is there.
Also Nokia manages to do it with 2 mics not three.
