    Just saw the new HP iPod commercial.

    It Had breakdancers moving to country music.

    I actually liked it better than the Apple silhouette ones, it showed close-ups on the interface instead of a huge Apple logo with some pretentious phrase below it.

    I guess it's all about marketing though, I was more concerned about the features of the iPod when I bought it. I guess "young" people would prefer the ability to look good while dancing around like a idiot when people can't hear the same music you're hearing :D :eek:

    fig tree
    is the hip-hop/rap one for hpod or straight ipod? i see the silhouette dancers and such but always end up looking away before the end. i must say as good as ipod commercials are the sony connect/20gb player thing has a better song. not a better commercial cause as a whole it blows, but i just dont like the kind of music on 'pod commercials.

    The different ipod color schemes were merely stickers, from what I recall.

    I think the demographic for the HP is more along the lines of Windows/average joe users.

    Probably a lot of people avoid it because the APPLE = PROPRIETARY thinking.

    I think you are right. This is such a good move for both apple and hp.
