I guess Samsung's taking dead aim at the douchebag demo with their marketing.  Anyone talking like the narrator in the Samsung ad in real life is just begging for a fist between the eyes.

 

The ad reminds me of the online a-holes that try to prove they're the smartest-guy-on-the-board by bringing up obscure references that few people care about (e.g., non-mainstream music or movies that hardly anyone saw or obscure books, etc.).  In order to "get" what Samsung's getting at with this ad, you'd have to remember the iPad Air pencil ad to begin with, since it dates back to October and didn't run for very long.  While the Apple pencil ad was nice, it does not approach the more memorable "Misunderstood" holiday ad or current "Your Verse" ads.  Apple doesn't even have the pencil ad on their website or YouTube page anymore.

 

Just compare the "Your Verse" ad with the Samsung pencil parody. The "Your Verse" ad is about raising the bar, using a device to explore your interests in new ways.  Samsung is just pulling it all back to specs and feature checklists, and doing it with a rather juvenile and snarky delivery.  Beyond the usual fandroids who hate all things Apple or who live for the "my-screen/feature checklist/clockspeed-is-bigger-than-yours" nonsense, I just don't see how the ad increases the brand appeal for either Samsung or the Galaxy Tab line.

"hiding behind the iPad Air". That's all I heard.

Help! I'm trapped in a white dungeon of amazing precision and impeccable tolerances!

Someone claimed that every Android handset can do that?  Who did that?  Who has access to every Android handset?  I hope you're not referring to my post where I said "every Android phone I've had" because if that's the case then you're cutting short the quote to take what I said way out of context and I don't appreciate it.

I’ll take this opportunity to mention that I misread the original claim to not read ‘read’, and therefore operated under the assumption that a call could be put on hold while other voicemail was actively listened to, rather than just viewing the interface thereof. I apologize for the misreading.

OK just a screenshot of your visual voicemail will do, slap your palm across the screen or whatever you have to do on your piece of crap droid f*ck the world (as was once common on jailhouse tattoos).

Droid being early Verizon Android based phones, so you own any or just like the name?

If you owned one tell us about the visual voicemail.

Now about that flip phone...

Is that ad even truthful regarding "two things on screen at once?" You can have more than two things on the screen at once, you just can't have side-by-side apps that aren't part of the iOS system.
No fair¡ You're getting info an informed discussion about the utility of the product.
I think taking the pencil is to imply that even a cheap Number 2 pencil is more desirable than the iPad Air.

I like it! A parody of a discruntled samsung user. It's so cunning you could stick a tail on it and call it a fox. Bravo! Very subtle

This "new" "multi-tasking" reminds me of the Xbox One "multi-tasking" where your movie keeps on running despite being blocked by something else or while you're looking at something else. If it's not blocked then it's reduced to tiny size, and you continue to miss your movie. Ridiculous.

 

If someone wants to watch a movie, they'll watch a movie. If they want to check their e-mail, they'll stop the movie and check it, otherwise they'll miss the movie. What an absurd advert promoting a ridiculous "feature". Yeah, keep your Galaxy and pencil. I'll stay with the iPad, a more serious tablet for whatever it is I'm doing.

 

Just pondering...

 

P.S. Notice there's no comment on the weight of the Galaxy Tab only that it's .0000000000000000000x thinner. The iPad Air looks beautiful. Thanks Samsung for making the iPad Air look so good.

I think it's a great testament to how good apple are. Why wouldn't Samsung want to improve on it...,the trouble is that the ad highlights that actually they are only as good as following apple and get a but messed up in the process. The fact they put the iPad in the ad demonstrates this. I think Samsung can be innovative but they should run they're own race. Noted they didn't touch the App Store lol and that's where there game changer really is. If the iPad had a crap display was bulky and slow then it might have had traction but why would you bother. Lazy ad agency or lack of creative at samsung...

So is that one of the "every Android phone I've ever had" as you claimed or did you just misappropriate the name for other reasons?

My method of multitasking involves multiple devices, TV screen, MacBook screen, iPad screen, iPhone screen all working at once, all readily available depending on the circumstance and all synced together thanks to the Internet, iCloud and Apple TV.

 

Who wants two things on an iPad screen when I've got an iPhone right next to it?

...but you couldn't multitask like an iPhone on GSM i.e. use voice and data at the same time.

 

Verizon's CDMA network was incapable of simultaneous voice and data, that came later with 4G.

Ah I see, well having WiFi or similar would solve that, but I didn't consider that limitation. We're all GSM over here. Thanks for the clarification.

If you want multiple apps visible at once, get a laptop or a desktop computer.

 

If you're one of those people that wants two apps visible simultaneously then you would probably not be happy if Apple offered that and then Samsung offered three simultaneously. You'd then want three too or risk "being left behind". At which point the usual pointless feature comparison/techie madness would kick in and your phone would have to be running OS X's interface to handle it all.

 

Apple provide one app on screen at once and several simple multitasking / app switching shortcuts for just that reason.

Has 7.1 fixed the memory bug or is everyone just adapting by dumbing down websites etc?

3 days. There's only 3 day and 10 day bans. Huddler might not let you know the details but some people sign up with disposable email addresses and won't get notifications. That's a good and bad thing depending on who it is that was banned.

It's not frowned on to call things out, just to do it in certain ways. There were a few infractions but the one that led to the temporary ban was the rant against Spamsandwich, which had multiple personal attacks. Infractions are most commonly for personal attacks towards long-term members.

There's a block list that people can and should use to avoid repeatedly getting into arguments with long-term members as it hides all their posts and it's not appropriate to announce who you're putting on it during a thread as some people like to do.

If you think a post is inappropriate, there's a flag icon to mark it. Inappropriate doesn't mean expressing an opinion you disagree with or coming from a poster you don't like though.

The simplest and most important rule to remember is don't address attacks at people. Don't call someone stupid for making a post, explain why their post is stupid or simply ignore it. People who come here to annoy people do it for the attention (e.g MrSimple) and when they get it, they got what they came for regardless of what happens. They don't want to be corrected because they'll just cycle through the same arguments they've had for years so it just derails a thread into insults. A lot of the nuisance posters are the same ones coming back so they get wiped immediately.

My mother in law has a galaxy tab 2. It does everything she needs it to. Buy wool and yarn from specialist retailers, books from amazon (ebooks, audiobooks and real books). Surf the net without a problem.
The reality for the non techie, non fanboy (from everyside) is that tablets from Apple and Samsung et al are just the same.
The trick is get that first sale to drive future sales, get people locked into the ecosystem.
Make them think that they cant leave. Apple being the first mover in the category has had a massive lead and everyone wants a piece of that pie.

Sorry, Samesong, iPad Air remains best in class, considering hardware alone.

Quite, and notice how duplicitous Samsung are in their ad: when they show their tablet side to side with the iPad Air, they are both playing a film. This was done deliberately to make it look as though the Samsung tablet had a bigger screen than the Air. This illusion was created due to the black borders when watching a film. In fact, the side bezels on the Samsung tablet are substantially thicker than the Air's, and the screen size of the Samsung is substantially smaller than the Air.

Although Apple hasn't made an "us vs them" ad in many years (which is a good thing), obviously people will bring up the Mac VS PC ads. Those ads bear no resemblance to Samsung's anti-Apple  ads, because of the following:

1. The ads were in context of an industry where Apple was a massive underdog- Macs held a marketshare in the single digits. 
2. The ads were funny, witty, and creative. It's why the've gone down in the advertising history books as classics. They did not lazily use other's companies ads as templates, then throw the product in the end proclaiming "and ours is even better!"
3. Never once did the ads bash USERS of competing products, which Samsung's ads tend to do.  

Not only are these Samsung ads ridiculous, they're painfully creatively bankrupt. Size, really? Talk about beating a dead-horse. Stylus, really? I have YET to see a fucking person in real life using a stylus with their phone, even though I know MANY people with Samsung phones, including the Note. But yeah, I guess you need to attract the demographic that has nothing better to do than trace out a photo of Kobe Bryant and text it to people. Can't wait to see how they will spin the "our fingerprint reader is even better!" angle on their next phone.  

You're back! Love your posts.

It's such a snarky, dislikeable voiceover in the ad, designed to appeal to the most hardened Apple haters.
