I'm sorry, but I find these Google ads better...show what the phone does plus a lot more...unlike the Apple commercials where it's just a static image of the iPad and iPhone.

True... those 2 videos together equal 3 minutes of advertising time.

No wonder they show more...

It might be better if you compared 30 second TV commercials instead.

Mountain Lion does have a recovery partition, but I don't know if that's factored into the 8GB. It's not even necessary for either. That one time it fails, you can just use a flash drive or something.

Wrong app

One of the apps is Toca Hair Salon 2 (http://appshopper.com/education/toca-hair-salon-2), not Toca Hair Salon (1). /Eric @ tocaboca

You people do realise that this is exactly how Apple's ''old'' commercials were? The only difference is that they didn't use a ''cute'' melody. I liked these but the guy screaming just made it a bit bad.

I hate these drumroll ads with the crows shouting the word it lands on. I couldn't cringe more.

You are already invested in the ecosystem. These ads are for those that are not. And even annoying they do get noticed.
