    Can't the Apple marketing team brainstorm any new ideas, all they do is try to reinforce all the old information over and over again!

    Examples:

    Surprise
    Top of the Line
    Elimination
    PC Choice Chat
    Biohazard Suit

    I could go on and on! All there about is viruses, I want a computer with a big screen, fast processor, o and no viruses!

    They're massively popular and effective, thats why theyre still around. A company as good at marketing like apple wouldn't be using them if they werent.

    I don't like them anymore. They used to be clever but now they're just old and dry.

    Personally, I like the format. Most of them I like. Short and to the point.

    I think that ISAF should negotiate a settlement with the Taleban and withdraw from Afghanistan and that Gordon Brown should call a General Election moments before announcing his resignation... is this still the PRSI forum!? :eek: ;)

    Most people I know don't give a &%$* about mac vs pc. People are smart enough to buy what they need.

    I just can't get enough of Kylie playing with her parents laptop and going online when they're obviously not around . . . responsible parenting skils by those PC owners . . . :D

    At first they were cute and funny, but now they are just annoying.

    When were the first I'm a Mac, I'm a PC ads aired? I feel like it's been at least 3 years? If so that's way too long.

    That's just me, though. I don't watch TV, so I'm not really annoyed by it per se.

    A commercial doesn't have to be enjoyable to be good. The fact that we're discussing them means they're good.

    and yes, I hate them too, but I still think they're good (if not a bit misleading)

    I think it's somewhat ironic that Apple's ad campaign touts how their machines "just work" . . . and yet here we are on a forum with thousands of threads about how they just don't. ;)

    I worked at Chick-fil-A BEFORE the "Eat Mor Chikin" campaign began. I think it started in 1996. Those commercials don't really deviate much from the premise (eat more chicken). These are advertisements, not TV series.

    I agree. Usually bad ads stays better in your head than good ads, especially very annoying ones.
