It won't be long before Apple's lawyers go after them.

Not so much false as using a questionable definition. They consider 'two or more things at the same time' as 'having windows do two or more apps open on the screen at the same time' just like they considered 'creating on a tablet' or 'using a tablet for business' as 'running Microsoft Office on a tablet'

We techies dissect these things too much.

 

I think almost all normal viewers would understand the ad as meaning that the USER can do more than one thing at the same time.

 

It's the whole point of having multiple windows on the screen, after all.  Every computer user these days understands the concept, and the ad was showing two user activities at the same time, which pretty much makes it obvious what they were talking about.

They wanted to the point and interesting, yes in a Samsung add running a PowerPoint and a notes app made more sense.
