    Do you think the Samsung line of adds are effective? The adds show the Samsung as innovative and "cooler" t
    Han people waiting in line for the next IPhone. All the while the a guy walks by and pulls out his "Built in" stylus on a Samsung with a 4 inch bright, clear screen.

    Could it be that "I" equipment will be looked upon as for old people, parents and dweebs as the commercial shows. Was it a mistake to not relapse the ipad3 info during the supper bowl,? Is apple on the back side of the mountain of successes? Will apple still be king?

    Cheers

    No. I was planning on getting a Samsung phone way before the commercial came out. Not everyone knows you can jailbreak apples products. Will this effect apple? I say no.

    I honestly thought getting "Samsunged" was a slam on Samsung. My moms Samsung Galaxy S sucks.

    I thought alot of the SB ads were weak, and that was one. Though I am all for poking fun at those who would sit on a sidewalk for anything other than being homeless.

    Sign of desperation when you start attacking a competitor directly.
    Products should speak for themselves.

    Hmmm Siri or stylus?

    I thought it was pathetic. First, people are waiting in line because they get a thrill from it. The idea of being swept up by another product is ludicrous. The Galaxy Note is meant to take on the iPad Touch. When was there a time when people waited in line for any iPod? The real kicker is how they lauded the stylus. Hey, Samsung, the stylus killed the Palm Pilot. Join 2012.

    Ads such as these are not designed to convert a competitor's customers. They're designed to reinforce the attitudes of those already committed to the advertiser's product by highlighting an attitude toward a competitor's customers a viewer already has. In this case, the notion that Apple fans queue up patiently for whatever Apple introduces is a widespread perception. The commercial's intent is to flatter those not in this category by suggesting that they evaluate products on their own merits.

    I think it could work, I can see samsung aiming for that large following of people that want top products but refuse to submit to Apple for one reason or another, therefore making Samsung that cool alternative in their minds.

    That was funny. I see everyone point however my teenage son does in fact see the Samsung as cool. He tells me the his circle of friend dont want iphone a I think I'm the cause because parents are now getting iPhone.

    Cheers
