Jon Stewart yesterday called Apple “Appholes” on Comedy Central’s The Daily Show:
|The Daily Show With Jon Stewart|
|“Appholes” – April 28, 2010|
MacDailyNews Take: The best comedy is based on truth. Unfortunately and as usual, there are many points, ranging from somewhat subtle right on up to blatantly obvious, that Jon Stewart fails to fully or even partially understand, yet, equally as usual, that doesn’t preclude him from doing over 8 minutes of commentary on the issue. Funny stuff.
Note to advertisers: (including those who advertise via third-party ad networks and become, in effect, our advertisers): Your Flash-based ads are no longer reaching the most well-heeled customers online: 50+ million iPhone owners. They’re also not hitting brand new iPad users or 35+ million iPod touch users. If you care about reaching people with discretionary income, you might want to consider dumping your flash-based ads and moving to a more open format that people with money and the will to spend it can actually see.
