suddenly newton said:To any ornithologist: how do dimming of lights reduce the risk that migratory birds will strike the side of buildings? It seems counterintuitive. The reason buildings and other tall structures are lit at night (either entirely or with those flashing red marker lights) is so aircraft won't hit them.
"The reasons are not entirely understood, but nocturnal migrants often navigate by the stars and illuminated windows and other night lights often divert them from their original flight paths, especially in low-ceiling or foggy conditions."

That ad features (spends much more time on) Justin Long, not the phone. Great for his career but not sure how this helps the phone stand out. Even then, hasn't every single potential customer moved beyond buying a phone because of looks? It does throw in the Alexa integration at the end, but again, that's not about the phone. It's about something that's not the phone.
