Despite what you may have read in the press, Apple's influence on the tech world is just as strong as it's ever been. The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 released last month is clearly aimed at the iPad mini, and its Wallet app, let's just say, is inspired by Passbook. Amazon's recent TV ad directly pits its 1900x1200 Kindle Fire HD against the iPad's retina screen (and price). And Blackberry is so tweaked by Apple, at least one of its executives can't even bring himself to speak his competitor's name in public. But no matter how hard they try, no matter how much time Apple gives them to catch up, there's one thing none of them can seem to get right: the art of the product reveal.
Over the weekend, Apple released their first television commercial for the new iPad 2, likely to the frustration of the many who continue to find their store shelves bare of the refreshed tablet -- but it’s a cool commercial, just the same.
The Verizon iPhone 4 isn’t the only thing that Apple is touting in its recent commercials -- the company has just unveiled their latest showcasing the iPad, which Cupertino reminds us is an “iconic” device.
Apple confirmed last month that its wildly popular “Get a Mac” television commercials had seen their final sunset, but there is a last-minute WWDC rumor out that at least one half of the commercial’s team might see one last appearance.
