According to one unverified report, Apple has completed filming a new series of advertisements promoting the Macintosh platform. Recent analyst comments have speculated that Apple would proceed with heavy ad campaign focusing on Macs. Indeed, Apple has drawn criticism from users about the lack of Mac and Mac OS X based advertisements in recent years.
The new ads take a page from Apple's old Switch Campaign by again featuring users who have switched from Windows to Mac. Of particular note, it appears that Apple may specifically hilight users who have switched to the Mac after purchasing an iPod -- articulating the "iPod Halo Effect".
The iPod Halo effect is a term that has been used by analysts and industry experts to describe the eventual conversion of iPod sales into long term Mac sales as consumers slowly adopt more Apple technology.
It is unknown when the ads will air.
