    So I was rolling to the airport today to do some of my aviation photography when this rolled by me from the Mall of America. Of course with photography involving a camera, I had one with and did my best to capture the train.

    ...it really is time for a new ad campaign, though...

    Cool snap.

    I'm not sick of the iPod ads just yet, but I doubt we've seen them quite so prominently over here. :p

    But it makes the ubiquitous white earbuds and white iPods black. Unless it's time to change that too...

    i seem to remember someone from australia or new zealand posting a picture like this, of a train with iPod ads on it. its a cool concept, though like others have said, i wish they'd advertise some other products too

    Well, Apple is always exclaiming "Think Different" - they should be able to come up with something, perhaps something related to computing even. :D

    The iPod ads are so distinctive and well-branded, I think Apple will continue using them for a while. They've invested a lot of money building that image, so, why throw it away so soon? Kellogs won't be throwing away Tony the Tiger anytime soon, and he's been around much longer.

    I am not sure If I am missing something here or not.. I tried to play the file and quicktime told me I "may experience problems because the required compressor could not be found".. I am thinking this is because I am a windows user and do not yet have access to QT7, does this sound feasable??? I went ahead and chose to play it anyway and it had the sound of the current "Technology" ad with a plain white screen.. That in and of itself is kinda funny considering the thread but somehow I think I should be seeing more...

    Works well for me (Tiger, Quicktime 7.1). The link pretty much explains itself, it's the iTunes ad with inverted colours. :)

    That is actually the first time I've seen an iPod ad somewhere other than the TV. I agree that the current silhouettes are getting old.
