Good OSX Ad

in macOS edited January 2014
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.

    yes I saw that to. I got a kick out of it!! It says in big letters "The only thing we have a monopoly on is complements" And there is a studio disply with a screenshot of OS X in it and great quotes seronding it. I thoght it was great! A direct shot at M$ with out a dout. We need more of these! How about a billboard of it!

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

    Is it possible to hate someone else more than you love yourself?

    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.
