1st iPhone Ad Premieres, Sucks
...Apple aired its first iPhone commercial during the Oscars. It's basically just famous clips of actors saying "Hello" in TV and movie classics. Then there's an iPhone. Then it says "Hello" in white text on black. And that's it. It might well be the perfect Oscars ad, incestuous as it is. But it's already passed its expiration date. It's instantly irrelevant. And they could have at least used the Mac saying "Hello" at some point."
I think this is a misstep. It might work for the Oscars, but as a launch, it's a mistake.
