    Apple posted a new television ad today highlighting their "Do Not Disturb" feature. Professional tennis players Serena and Venus Williams are shown playing ping-pong against the narrator in a dream:

    Ironically, the new ad comes on the same day that a bug in the scheduled Do Not Disturb feature prevented it from turning off on many iPhones.

    I think what they are trying to say is, "now you can go longer without being disturbed!"

    In the original version of this ad, Venus pulls out through exhaustion.

    Pun intentional? Because that was the song use in the first iPhone ads.

    I did not think that this feature was big enough to warrant an entire ad being made about it...

    I'm stunned at the banality of this ad.

    On another note if you know you are dreaming and therefore are glad you set your phone to dnd then that means that you are lucid dreaming. And in a lucid dream you can do anything. I don't mean pretty well anything, I mean anything. And if the best this chap can do is a game of tennis then I'm afraid that is very very sad.
