Good OSX Ad

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
On the inside cover of Newsweek, Apple has a 2 page ad for OSX and its a good one. Screen shot in the middle, a jab at Microsoft being a monopoly on top, and the screen shot is surrounded by quotes from reporters touting it as a great OS and the fact that its better than Windows XP. Nice to see Apple getting more aggressive in its ads. Now, how about a TV commercial?....................................... .....

I saw that too. I pointed it out to my Dad, as it was the first good ad from Apple in awhile.

I believe the ad was also in last week's Time magazine (dated ~12/10/01).

Sorry I still don't have a scanner for my old 8100. I keep saying I will buy one after Apple makes a computer I want at a price I can afford. Still hasn't happened ..................................

I still think if they ever do a TV ad it should have James Earl Jones' voiceover and end with "Introducing Mac OS X. The most advanced operating system in the world."

There it is.

Please do not mind the rough scan :-)

I think it's a good one. Especially the headline, seems Apple started their competitiveness again, probably it's the agreement between MS and Apple close to the end.

But I think it'll be even better if they do not show the display, just the OS X desktop will be wonderful, and more focus. This is a little more like an ad for the monitor than the OS.

Thanks for posting the ad.
post #22 of 24
Ah, thanks for the scan!

Though, I agree with eboy. Apple should have gone OSX-only with the picture or used something like the G4 PowerBook's screen so that less attention was drawn to the monitor/computer and more to the operating system.

Nice try, Apple. I'm hoping to see some more...

They should use something else than the "official MacOS X screendump". It have always looked too crowded for my taste. I also use a 1024*768 but my screen never look like that.

Perhaps they should have used the 17 inch. The 15 inch look a bit small on pictures and a Ti or the cinema display look too expensive

Yeah, I've always thought so too. I never understood why Apple did that.
