These are without a doubt their best ads in a while, just saying.

I don't like people yelling at me. That's why I have to mute the theme song to Modern Family each week.

What is the name of the learning app in the second ad? The one that shows a light switch and "Ll is for light"?

Those were the lamest ads I've seen from Apple. Wonder how much the loser behind them got paid.

At least these ads show people doing stuff with the device unlike the Surface where we get people dancing and an emphasis on the click of the keyboard and kickstand.

They're decent ads. Shows what you can do with the iPad.

For those who are complaining about the 'screaming' of words, don't ever go out in the public as you might get annoyed. They 'screamed' a different what three times in 30 seconds...?

These reminded me of Sesame Street sketches.

Also: I was waiting for them to yell "iPad!" at the end. It never came

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

I actually liked the ads and I think if it gets people to wonder what app it was then its served its purpose and gets the job done.

These ads are starting to become boring. 2 hands, white background, upbeat tunes while showing apps. Samsung's Superbowl commercial was funny and had decent actors.

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