"The latest iPad commercial starts off with the turntable DJay app scratching the now widely known iPad commercial song "Never Stop" by Chilly Gonzales, followed by more apps and words: fresh, tickets, news, stories, 60,000+ apps, students, teachers, hollywood, iconic. Finally, the commercial ends with Marilyn Monroe on Vanity Fair magazine as seen on the iPad."
"No the title isn't a typo - Verizon has actually aired an iPad commercial called Breakaway. Since Verizon is now carrying the iPad Wi-Fi in a bundle with the Verizon Mi-Fi hotspot device, it makes sense they'd want to promote it. Still, feels weird. Like something is a changing..."
Something changing...wonder what they are referring to? iPhone? Who knows, but lots of speculation continuing on Verizon iPhone, however what we know for sure is that Verizon is selling the iPad, along with several other big name stores. And regarding the ad, I think they did a pretty good job with the details, especially when he bounces as they pull the floor out from underneath him.
"Apple is advertising the iPad in a new spot that breaks from previous iPod an iPhone product ads to present the new device as magical and revolutionary. The new spot, which Apple today posted to YouTube, asks 'What is iPad?'"
Does that sound familiar? If you have been following Apple products for a number of years, it might. Check out why after the jump.
"Apple added yet another iPhone commercial to its Web site on Thursday, this time showing how an entire family uses the combination iPod and smartphone."
Called "Family Man," this one shows how a family uses the iPhone for a variety of things like sharing photos and cooking and opening the trunk of their Touareg. You can see all the ads at Apple's gallery page.
"Apple has posted their latest iPhone ad to their iPhone ad gallery. The ad, titled "Commute," is another ad that spotlights "everyday use" features for the average user."
The ability to use the phone capability in conjunction with another program on the iPhone is something I use at least once a day. And if that isn't enough, follow through as we check out the commercial titled "Concert" that was posted after "Commute."
"Apple co-founder Steve Jobs was in attendance at the Oscars Sunday night, and during the telecast the first iPad ad revealed, upon closer look, prices for some titles in the new iBookstore."
So some eagle eyes out there watching the first commercial noticed prices on some of the books, ranging from $7.99 USD to $14.99 USD. Jobs was also on hand, in his words, "To see Up win," which it did, so perhaps he was good luck.
"If you want your branded app to be included in Apple's next iPhone commercial, the first rule is not to ask. The second rule? Make the app really useful to consumers."
The Apple commercial exposure can really boost the exposure. One app, Epicurious, saw a boost in downloads of 20,000 just after a commercial ran that had featured their application. But when it boils down to it, the people making these adds use the product too, so fill the need and don't make a crappy app, perhaps you will get noticed. I think it is more luck than anything when it comes to being featured in one of the commercials, or perhaps a little of who you know.
