iPad vs Newspaper
This is another hilarious commercial for an iPad app, and points out why the iPad won’t be completely replacing a newspaper anytime soon, at least for some tasks. Dubbing itself as ‘better than a newspaper in all kinds of ways’ the commercial pokes fun at another traditional usage of rolled up trees: fly swatting.
If you want to see another great app ad, check out iPad Buddy & Steve Young football. It’s really interesting to see commercials popping up for ads in the iOS ecosystem, but I guess it’s not too surprising. I’m also amused at the different approach the app advertisers are taking, focusing more on humor than on the user experience, which is a stark contrast to what Apple does in ads like their new iPad commercial.
