Good Lord people. These ads weren't for you, nor we're they for the average Apple customer. They obviously were targeted to the non-Apple user who is thinking about getting an Apple computer, but worries about the kind of support to expect. Add a touch of humor and a smidge of absurdity and you have these ads. All Apple ads do not have to be (and have not all been) artistic wonders, clever and smart with a touch of irony, or massively hip. They have to reach the targeted...
Good call on the count genovelle. Over the past three years, you are comparing a total visitor registry for M/soft of 13 million, to a three year Apple visitor registry of 1,245,816,000 or 1.245 billion. Any further analysis of this disparity only deepens the embarrassing nature of the Microsoft Store concept and delivery. Once again Mr. Ballmer demonstrates that ihe s fixated to the detriment of his company on Apple. Neil, can you really call this "head to head" when...
Seriously?   How can you know categorically, that Apple is IN FACT (not just supply line speculation) doing any of the things you described, here let me help you - YOU DON'T.   Strike one.   Your wayback machine is busted, or you are blind. Apple had lines out the doors at most Apple retail store buying up the 1st gen iPhone. It was successful out of the gate. Each subsequent model simply expanded that success into a significant chunk of the smartphone market...
The big publishing houses use new, popular titles to generate a significant amount of revenue - which is why new releases are higher priced than classics or older popular releases - no one in this forum should be unfamiliar with that fact. Which is why many of these are released in hardbound version first with the paperback being released some weeks down stream.   What was happening in the case of Amazon is the fact that the publishers were holding back popular...
LOL!! So FAIL twice - first you listed "all the Apple devices I own" and then you followed up and used the "f" word. You fell for the classic troll-bait ruse. In which case if you aren't trolling you're seriously un-savvy, if you are, that was spectacularly obtuse! *GRIN*
@scotty123:     Rich text editor, ContentEditor_0, press ALT 0 for help. So , um NO. Wrong. Let me list an abbreviated list of the celebrities that Apple has used in their ads over the years, and you can stop typing nonsense:   Albert Einstein, Bob Dylan, Martin Luther King, Jr., Richard Branson, John Lennon, R. Buckminster Fuller, Thomas Edison, Muhammad Ali, Ted Turner, Maria Callas, Mahatma Gandhi, Amelia Earhart, Alfred Hitchcock, Martha Graham, Jim...
Solutions are simple. Most operations classify fundraising under education because they "acquaint the citizen with their recent efforts to save the planet". The IRS should declare that any attempts at solicitations of funds by a non-profit organization that are masked under the education classification, be correctly categorized as fundraising, since more than 50% of funds received are used for more fundraising, they must show their contacts and supporters the real...
Does the phrase "lighten up Francis" ring any bells?   Just as a passing observation, the immediate resort to "not getting any" really unqualifies your responses as something to be taken seriously as commentary.   OTOH, perhaps your sense of humor is simply unequal to the task this Monday morning, and a step back-deep breath-adjust attitude moment is in order. I know I have Mondays that challenge my sense of humor and proportion.   Note I gave you the benefit...
So instead of a 7" iPad, Apple brings out the 7" iPod Touch Pro (64GB), drops the price on regular iPod Touch to $99 (16GB) $199 (32GB).   It could happen.   It could.   Makes as much sense as the rumor, maybe a tad more. 
Now, now, since when has ZZZ ever used factual logic to defend an opinion? ZZZ always runs deflectors on full power after dropping the usual class of opinion.   Just sayin'... ;)
