Being an iPhone 4S owner, I love how the commercials depicting Panorama and Flyover say "Also on 4S" at the bottom

Who is approving the crapping ads recently? Unbelievably mediocre for Apple.

These ads are nice but they're lacking something.. Cam't really tell what it is.

Do not like the physics one. The others are great. Not sure why they're making a commercial for $29 ear buds though.

Not wanna flame this, but half of those ads are just telling that the way Apple did it the past couple of years was just wrong.
I can see how you could say Apple is perhaps shooting themselves in the foot with this, but in reality, most earbuds are circular, especially in the $20-$40 price range. They're more saying, "We're doing it right; every other earbud near $30 is doing it wrong."

Then you're obviously crazy . Seriously though, why would you want a smaller screen?

Because they probably cost $5 to produce, that's pretty good profit margin.

Love Daniels. As far as I'm concerned, he could be the new voice of Apple.

Not really crazy about these ads...

Also, I think John Krasinski would do a pretty good job with the voiceovers of Apple commercials. The current guy's voice is kind of annoying.

I wouldn't say good. Better, but not good. Ridiculously bass and low-midrange heavy almost to the point where things get muddy. You can get better headphones for $29 elsewhere.

Wow, lots of hatred here.

I thought the ads were pretentious and superior sounding. I like that they tried to explain the thumbs thing because it makes sense, but the physics bit about bigger and smaller is just confusing for people who don't know that it's taller but actually takes up less space because it's also much thinner.
