    I think Apple's are something where if you see one you point it out or comment on, but I wish that Apple would speak up a little bit more or have something really spectacular and unexpected to make up for lost time.

    Any other opinions?

    Here in Japan, theres a ton of ads on the Mac magazines and stuff, but not much.. or should I say almost no ads in public places.

    Apple's got to realize somethin... THERES NO POINT ADVERTISING TO MAC USERS WHO ARE ALWAYS READY TO TAKE WHATEVER APPLE GIVES THEM!!!

    Yeah, I hate to say it, but Apple is still kinda lacking on advertising... Dell has like a million commercials with that dumb@$$ always stoned teenage guy named steve. (wheres my gun?) just kiddin ;) but those commercials are annoying.. Apples getting a good start with retail stores, which are great advertising, because you can just walk in and play with stuff! The best way to see the beauty of a new iMac is in person! But for those of us stuck in places like.....Cedar Rapids, Iowa for one, we dont have an Apple store anywhere near us.. I wanna see more TV ads. The iPod one is run occasionally, and the iDVD one is sometimes, but I wanna see more! :)

    Commercials

    I would love to see apple advertise more! They should do a commecrial for the new iMac and the faster G4's! As for the Dell kid I would love to have him wear a shirt that says "Dude your entering Hell!" and on the back it would say "Buy a Mac"
    Dell kid u screwed Dell!

    I would love to see the ad of the iMac dancing (the one they show in the stores - I think there's a QT of it on the Apple site) play during the Superbowl... what better way to reach the consumer audience?

    I personally like their print ads....simple....forward....

    I don't care too much for their tv spots though....esp. the ones with Jeff Goldblum....

    I am in total agreement: Apple doesn't advertise enough to "Joe Consumer." You see tons of great ads in Mac publications, but that is just preaching to the choir. When Microsoft was releasing XP, was there anyone who didn't know it? Every time I turned on the TV, there was Madonna singing and people flying. :rolleyes: And I do mean EVERY time. And when I get Parade magazine each Sunday with my local paper, there is always a Dell ad in it. Why isn't Apple there?

    I think there are a lot of people--first-time computer buyers, for example--who don't even know that Apple is a viable alternative to the Wintel juggernaut! And walking into a CompUSA, they still may not find out any differently. With its new hardware (larger iBook, new iMac, new G4s) Apple needs to let people know that they're there and why the Mac user experience is better than that of Windows. I certainly don't mind telling other people about Macs, and we all know that can bring new people to the fold, but I don't believe it's really my job! It's Apple's, and they could be doing a far better job with it.

    In Italy the advertising is absent except some pages on the Macworld and Applicando journal.

    DC (off subject)

    last year my girlfriend spent her last semester of college at American University and I flew up to see her twice (the first time for 9 days, the second for an extended weekend). I didn't know what to expect....but I'll tell u that I fell in love with the city! DC has so much history, so much to see & do....lots of great restaurants....killer night life!! One could spend an entire week alone at the Smithsonian...

    I've lived in New Orleans all my life....and while it has it's good and bad points....DC shared all of the good points without the bad from here. It's been nearly a year since I was there and I can not wait to go back. Out of all the places I've visited in this country, DC was by far at the top of the list. I know it sounds corny, but I prefer the methods of public transportation (the Metro is so damned cool!) over having to drive everywhere. I wouldn't dare use the public transportation here.

    whfsdude, which part of time do u reside anyway?

    I live on Capitol Hill, it's sorta nice here but they have this rule that they can't dig up the streets so you know, no cable :( Metro around here is cool, I take it to and from school everyday, I can wear head-phones and flash a cd player and I won't get mugged. I have taken the train to school for about 4 oor 5 years and I love it. My dad did some work for American University, he also has a press pass so we can go watch the 4th of july fireworks from the whitehouse lawn. I hope you get to come to DC again soon, I can give you a list of places that are very nice, but that not many people know about. Btw, Cherry Blosims are aready blooming :)
