    Cheers for that! Shazam failed to identify the song with all the talkin' in the foreground. :p

    P.S. I'm surprised that Apple picked yet another song from the same artist, same album. Never been like that before. They must really like 'em. :)

    Honestly, it's the APPS that "make" the iPhone, and really sets it apart from all other smart phones. What other feature does the iPhone have that can't be "beat" by some other phone out there? There are some things, of course, like the best UI experience -- but that's hardly something that's going to "win over" many people. And it's something that can't really be conveyed well in a TV ad anyway (you need to have hands-on experience to really understand...).

    Focusing on apps really makes the MOST sense in these ads. No other phone is going to beat Apple at that game...

    +1. Spot on answer.

    And they get to show off the UI in the advertisements anyway.

    Me neither.

    Is it too geeky that I want to download all the apps that appear on the iPhone ads, whether I need them or not? :eek:

    I really like this set of ads, good music and demonstrations.

    Can you believe there are still Apple/iPhone haters out in the world? I wonder what they must be thinking... :rolleyes:

    For some reason I can never view these on my iPhone. Is this a JavaScript problem, and if so, why hasn't apple fixed it?
