One could also say this the logical follow up to the 1984 commercial in that it shows an open non-comformed world free to explore and communicate with tools that are flexible and personal instead of mindless subjects chained to a desk staring at C:\ all day long. Basically the era of peace after the war.

Nice comment.

That doesn't make sense. Why would Apple think the event is beneath them. Apple didn't want to spend money on an ad. Period.

At time 01:07ish there's a beautiful app with lots of dots, lines, etc. What is it? I'd love to give this a try on my projector like it's been demonstrated here. Thank you!!

From my perspective the super bowl represents everything that is anti-apple. Apple is about science, art, sophistication, style and beauty. The super bowl, not so much.

Your prospective is wrong as Apple has and will advertise during football games and other sporting events.

I wrote perspective not prospective. It is impossible for a perspective to be wrong. It is just a point of view.

Yes, auto correct. A perspective can be wrong if evidence points to the opposite. Our perspective back in the day said the sun revolved around the earth.

It is not a technical issue. I think something is beautiful, someone else thinks it is ugly. There is no way to prove one viewpoint is true or the other false.

Honestly, I find almost everything about the NFL repulsive from a cultural "point of view". I'm glad Apple did not participate in this objectionable venue. Just my opinion. I prefer to watch olympic sports.

You may think it's ugly or barbaric but you are trying to project your views onto Apple.
