All this does for me is long for a larger iPad that can accommodate a full size 88 key grand piano keyboard. Come on, Ives... make it happen.

It's a terrific ad and a wonderful way to introduce the mini. Sweet, simple, and to the point.

Good work advertising, Apple. Instead of showing the key features of the iPad, making it look like a digital piano is more important. The digital piano isn't even a built in app.
Advertising is done in campaigns, not individual ads. Besides, most people in western countries between 5 and 90 likely know what an iPad is.

You ever seen a droid commercial? They show the device blasting wholes through walls.

Maybe you don't understand. The iMini is a recreational tablet - and Apple is showing that you can have fun with it.

This ad is very annoying. This first time it's alright, but after that I'm annoyed by it.

That'd be iPhone 88, not an iPad.

What's an iMini? As if we haven't had enough with "iTouch"...

The commercial is cute especially the end where the last piano note is played and the word "MINI" comes on.

Haters gonna hate but seriously how can you rag on a commercial that has heart and soul playing.

The song alone is enough to put most people in a good mood. Much better than the hipster
Marketing that is being done for nexus 10.

Really ? You know anyone who bumped there S3 to share anything after the first week? It is only slightly better than the bump app that has been on the iPhone for 4 years. No one used that more than a week after downloading it either.

The samsung ads were HILARIOUS. Did nothing to talk about the actual S3... but they were hilarious.

This iPad Mini ad is just genius, and in a way, beautiful. One of the best ads in years

Then that leads me to a confusion where I have no idea if the iPad mini does exactly the same thing as the large iPad.

If they showed more apps, I'll be more certain that it does exactly the same thing.
I think you may have dived in too deep.

As a former Ad/Marketing guy, I had to weigh in since you brought up the SIII ads. The Samsung ads are funny, but have a fatal flaw. They highlight how "in demand" their competitors product(s) are. There are better ways to differentiate than showing people lining up with fervor to buy a rival product.

Epic fail in terms of Advertising 101.

Oh I know, they're a complete failure for their intended purpose. Would never buy an S3. They just made me giggle... "The headphone jack, is going to be on the bottom.... BOOM" hahahaha.

I edited my OP to clear any confusion, the Galaxy ads were not beautiful, the Mini ad is

Way to disprove your own point by showing that even the world's most ignorant woman still knows what an iPad is.[COLOR="#808080"]
No, the point is that she doesn't know how technology works. This was before the iPad came out, BTW.
