Apple debuts two new iPhone ads (with video)

Apple has debuted two new iPhone ads online which each showcase iPhone’s Safari Web browser capabilities.

One of the ads is focused on the popular social networking service Facebook. The ad displays how it is convenient to keep in touch with their Facebook friends even when you are away from a “computer.”

The other new ad is based on car buying. The ad displays how powerful it can be to have the internet at your disposal when dealing with a car salesman.

    It must be something to do with the area, because in the S.F. Bay Area, the EDGE network is pretty fast and I could probably perform those car steps in under a minute. It’s obviously way faster than dial-up. What AT&T;needs to do is upgrade their lame speed regions and get them up to snuff.

  2. Forget the iPhone, print out all the best prices and take them with you, pull it out while you are looking and make notes right on the paper. While your shopping, dont forget that most places will BEAT the price by 10%. You are in the drivers seat. If you show them you can get it cheaper and they only match the price, what is your incentive to buy from them? Be upfront and tell them are price comparing. They may even offer additional accessories.

  3. “pull it out while you are looking”

    Pulling it out sure would take them off guard. I see your point. Wait, no I don’t.

    (“Forget the iPhone, print out all the best prices and take them with you” I hope you weren’t serious.)

    “…Although honestly the car one is stretching it a bit…”

    I was at a store trying to decide on speakers. On my Touch, I surfed reviews of all the speakers that were available. Perfect.
    If I had an iphone, the shopping utility would be used more than checking Facebook.

  5. If you look at the ad frame by frame you will see on one facebook page that ‘Alix Hamilton just wants to get home, and not be stuck in Auckland a wee bit stinky!’

    As a (albeit Australian-resident) Kiwi I am wondering is it Alix or Auckland that is a wee bit stinky?

    Now a conspiracy theory would go that ‘Steve Jobs is still pissed off about the iTunes NZ store being pre-announced before he got a chance to tell us, and slipped this in to the ad after all these years to get even.’
