How can you write this crap here when the Beats Solo 2 is getting rave reviews all over the world?
It is an excellent headphone at great price point. Your hatred cannot possibly be about the headphone.

Hummm…************ has a link to the ad I can actually play on my iPhone. Why doesn't AI have that?
Why? Mine is.
Well, if you say so...
The fact remains folks that Apple is in the hood, because they want to be there.
Yeah, that’s not a fact at all.
How would you know? " src="http://forums-files.appleinsider.com/images/smilies//lol.gif" />
Same way you do.
Also because zero of their other products is tailored to just one group of people.
Haha, I told you all, keep on defending Beats.
I just clicked on the ad a minute ago, and what complete crap! What the hell?
Is it supposed to be funny or something? It's pretty damn tragic.
Whoever came up with the lame idea behind that ad should be immediately fired.
I did like the recent Macbook ad with all of the stickers, but this piece of crap ad is absolutely terrible.
Ok, That does it. Go watch the ad 10 times and then write a report about it.
And this brings me back again to my main argument against Beats.
It's not about their profits or whatever, I don't give a crap about that. It's about their image, their culture and their advertising, and it cheapens the whole Apple brand.
I'd put money on it that this ad will have no effect on Apple's brand/image.
My report about the Beats ad
By Tallest Skil
lol, centering text Grade 3 as in “3 out of 3”
It’s incomprehensible garbage, promoting products wholly distinct from the rest of Apple’s lineup. That people believe Beats’ hardware will continue to be made, given everything we know about what Apple does to acquisitions, is hilarious.
If it actually aired on tv then I'd put money on it that it would affect Apple's image... for the bad.
The contrast between Apple and Beats images couldn't be displayed better than in this ad.
smart and savvy compared to cheap and gaudy.
How does their culture cheapen the brand? If you could only see how out of touch your comment is...
...And this makes me so happy that Apple is doing this as it may yet save the United States of America. "A Force for Good"
Meh, people here were saying Apple would never make the gold iPhone because that would be gaudy and didn't match Apple's style. Apple did and it became the best selling one in the lineup. People here at AI aren't the best judge of what Apple's style is and what the majority of Apple consumers want.
Except that I wasn't one of those people.
How does their culture cheapen the brand?
The ad speaks for itself.
I fear that it might be... but then this is what I expected anyway from an in-house team.
Hoping it isn't.
