Craig did a really great job presenting the new software.

I usually don't care about such things, but that was actually a superb ad. Just wow.

Branding and Mission
I do think they have to work to put some space between them and Android /Samsung etc, The haters have got some traction in popular opinion, (and to extent in the arguments, Android / Galaxy S4 is a cracking product).
So its more than timely that they get the brand out and give it a polish, tell people what they are about all over again. And emphasise how that is reflected across the product range.
Of course what they should rearly do is have some sort of rapprochement with Google IMHO, who lets face it won the battle to wrestle the smartphone market from them, even if not fully fair and square, if it wasn't for android Apple would have wiped the floor with everyone else. But now Apple should stop being babies about it the fighting is damaging them.

I think it's a great ad. They need to start a campaign with this... this is something that sets them apart. They have never moved away from this, and it is a key to their success. Their best campaign was the iPod silhouette from '04-'08, because it allowed everyone to adopt to a low-price point product of Apple like the iPod, but it also got people on board using a creative way of marketing the silhouette tv ads. Marketing wise, it is what sent them apart from the field of the MP3 market.
Designed by Apple in Cali is no joke... they need to keep on using this campaign, so everyone understands the quality you get with a brand that is always & will always be designed in the US.
Those new Mac Pro's are sick. I think with the 4K Support & the introduction of AC routers, maybe we do see an iTV sooner than later as data speeds increase due to fiber optics blanketing most of the US now.

So all in all, I'd say Google won a fools battle. Apples still got their eye on the prize, and so far seems to winning the battle that truly counts.
