Latest Verizon iPhone Ad Touts Network Quality

With pre-orders for the Verizon iPhone selling out in less than a day, I think it’s safe to say the Verizon and Apple have a very successful partnership on their hands. While their have been many commercials from both AT&T and Verizon, each trying to promote their own network’s benefits, I happen to really like this latest one from Verizon.

A few tech blogs have stated that the commercial “slams” AT&T, which to me is a big overstatement. Every time a commercial like this emerges, it always a “slam” on the competitor… and it never really is. For what it’s worth, there is definitely a jab at the AT&T network, but I think the real takeaway is the quality and reliability of Verizon (it’s more of a ‘we’re good’ than a ‘they’re bad’). Either way, it’s a good commercial. Check it out below:

Best Unintentional Ad Ever – ‘Atomic Tom’ Jam on iPhones

The title may sound a little hyperbolic, but once you see the video in this post, I think you’ll find it hard to disagree.  The video sets up the premise that the New York band Atomic Tom had their instruments stolen, but were able to improvise.  The result is the following video:

Just playing the guitar riff on a iPhone would be a challenge, but the band manages to perform the entire song “Take Me Out” using only their phones. It’s an extremely clever idea, it sounds amazing, and it’s giving Apple some serious publicity (not that they need it).  Not only is this video promoting Apple, but I liked the song so much I will likely buy the band’s entire album from iTunes.
