    I feel some home made versions of these ads appearing on YouTube within the week...

    Looks like Apple is finally including the business market in their commercials ...nice.

    Although, the endings seem awkward IMO.

    Also, whatever happened to the iPod touch commercial?

    Apple must really be sick of white, they're even phasing it out of their commercials!


    Seconded!

    Especially the one about the guy owing him money.

    Like the adds.

    They look like nice ads. Disappointing they are all men though.

    These were quite possibly some of the worst ads I have ever seen.

    Fantastic ads. They should've done something like this a long time ago.

    And I personally really like the endings...adds more of a human touch to it.

    I second the comment that the endings are awkward.

    I liked the original series of ads better.

    I love my iPhone, I love these ads - they manage to successfully convey how personal a phone is to (some) people.

    Not too impressed with these. I think most people will see some weird person talking in a commercial and change the channel or leave the room. I guess it is nice to show that people have many uses for iPhone, but they are just boring to me.

    They're good. They don't seem overwhelmingly 'Apple', but still retain the simple background, and everything you come to expect from Apple ads. The black seems to suit it, although I'm not sure if I prefer black backgrounds to white. But still, we all knew Apple had to move away from white eventually. Can't stay stuck in the past.

    Plus, I too like that 'human element' at the ends.
    Makes it seem less like actors/models. More like people.

    The endings are SO cool. But the content and the interviewees - meh.

    A bit bizarre...

    I found the visual voicemail to be the only succesful ad. The one about finding a name online was very weak... and Stephano works if you want to sell the iPhone to the mob, or maybe Sopranos fans, but isn't that show over?

    No females... and I'll bet Stephano misses instant messaging... sorry but loading it off a webpage is a poor implementation of IM!

    Only interesting parts were the ending when it was revealed, oh, background in middle of a city. Hm.
