The iPhone-man Cometh

14 Jun

You’ve probably heard that Apple is releasing the iPhone at the end of this month. If you haven’t heard, how’s life under that rock going? You may or may not, though, have seen these commercials for it. One interesting thing about these commercials that I can’t really think of any other commercials for any other products doing is that they show only one thing: the product being used. That’s it. There’s nothing else. No slogan, no humerous anecdote, no sex, no violence, no “special offers” or deals, no nudity, just the iPhone being used. They simply say “this is the product, this is how it does what it does” and that’s it. They have enough confidence in their product that they let it speak for itself. Almost like it’s just an honest ad, and not propaganda. Almost. (As opposed to those other commercials from Apple…)

In any case, the iPhone looks damn cool, and if it had enough storage for all of my music, had already been out “in the wild” for a long enough to be tested and improved, had useful battery life, and was cheaper (or I were richer) I would totally buy one. Totally.

    i had thought that too. what a new concept. showing the product. but how much do you think the person’s hands got paid for that commercial?
    and the more i see the commerical the more i want the phone. but i agree with your reasons not to buy it. who needs all of that combined into one. i mean a phone should be to call people on not to do eight zillions of other things.

      Can you hire just hands?
      Well, I mostly agree with the phone really only having to do one thing: make calls, but I really do like carrying around all my music with me in my pocket. As long as I’m going to carry around an iPod and a phone, they might as well be combined.
