    This has probably been discussed when the last 3 ads came out cause it looks the same there, but anybody else notice how the square on the home button is now barely noticeable?

    In the bet ad is is barely noticeable. In the brilliant ad, it's slightly more visible, and the music store one is the same as the rest.

    I think it's just the lighting they're using, maybe trying to focus everything on the screen? For me it seems that everything around the screen seems noticeably darker.

    Perhaps this is because the screen is black. :p

    Also notice that in the ads they never push a button to turn on the phone. It is just on and they need to slide the bar. They are trying to market it as a full touch screen.

    Is that a Google App on the iPhone in Bet? I don't have an iPhone, but it looked like a Google Search App on the home screen or something.

    The 'Brilliant' one should not have ended with "is... well.. brilliant", but instead; "is.... nothing new" :p

    That's just a WebClip icon, a shortcut to the website. This has been available for a while.

    The "Music Store" ad starts by saying "We've all gone into a record store." Is that still true? There aren't any record stores left!

    In the "bet" ad they type out "HAS" , but then search for "Basketball all time scoring leader" which does not have the phrase "HAS", ruined the commercial for me . . .

    1. You should learn to lighten up.

    2. He spells BAS

    (I can't believe I wasted 15 seconds checking that)

    I bet you that they didn't.:D

    Watch what they type out frame by frame and you can clearly see that he clicks the B under the H. He never touches the H.

    Good new ads but thought that the Music Store one was a bit rubbish to be honest.

    One other thing in the adverts I think I notice is how much better the iPhone works than in real life, just little things like pictures being there when in real life they would have to load in. Maybe just me, having a strange day!!

    They had to say it quick while almost 50% of the target market still has. Also the "record store" they showed was iTunes! The target market has ALL gone there.

    AT&T is loving life right now gents.

    Phone is an "just an APP" on a platform which is an Apple Tablet Nano.

    If only they could show what OSX does in their ads, like they do with the iPhone.

    Time Machine with Justin Long was a step closer, but a lot of people haven't even seen Exposé in action...

    It's still amazing that they don't even offer that ringtone.

    I thought the same thing. Where's the better way to promote the Macintosh than just 'Get a Mac' series?

    Cool ad's i do really like the bet one and music store one, really shows off some key parts of the iPhone I like. The directions one was OK, I just wish the phone had GPS, it's hard to keep looking at your phone and clicking next when also trying to drive.
