Video: The Tallest iPhone Yet

tallest iphone

It's Friday and time for some levity! I truly enjoy a good spoof and love when it's targeted towards a company like Apple (of which I'm a total fanboy). Brand perfection brings with it the opportunity for ridicule… and this video from Satire nails it! Although the guitar idea is pretty cool 🙂

On a side note, iOS6 is out and we've seen some really great features. I've also seen a couple bugs. One example was that I was on a phone call this morning and my alarm went off… not sure if that worked the same way on the last version but it was a little bit annoying.

Quite a few apps are having some difficulties with some bugs. I think both Apple and the software developers are responsible there. Apple keeps a tight rope around its application process to assure quality. It's some of the sacrifice in freedom that Apple users trade for the benefit of stability. It looks like they didn't really do any testing of existing applications to ensure they were fully functional, though.

And Application developers had the opportunity to download iOS6 and fully test their applications prior to the release, so shame on them for some features not working. I've not seen any huge issues… just minor navigation and postback issues.

PS: Thanks to Ben McCann at Catalist Consulting for sharing this find!

    hilarious… but to the “fanboy” up there. The fact that you ARE a fanboy shows a complete lack of understanding of technology, marketing and hypnosis. apple spends much of it’s revenue in advertising that targets credulous groups of people that want to be included wen it comes to tech, but have limited technical abilities, are easily suggestible and like to dream. Nothing wrong with dreaming, but by using hypnosis in ads, apple cultivates hidden messages that excite tech lovers, links them to the concept of dreaming/being different and finally links those to the apple symbol. Of course people will say this doesn’t happen, but it’s easy to do that when there are things going on that are beneath their level of consciousness. Furthermore, apple designs it’s ads to make users think they are getting the most technologically cutting edge advancements when in reality they are often stale, old hardware that they get for cheaper, and sell for higher prices. The imac is the perfect example. Apple being an “innovator” should for a price of $2000 give only the latest in hardware for their imac right? Wrong, instead while PC had core i7 for nearly 2 years, apple was still shipping lousy core2duo cpu’s to unsuspecting customers.

    Hence, whey I say they are not quite as technically savvy as they believe they are. And that really stinks, because mac customers have a large base of people who believe that editing video on these is the best. But it would 40 or 50% longer to render anything on a $2000 imac than it would on a $700 pc running windows. Sure people will say, “windoze, omg, windows movie maker”, but after you save $1300 on a pc, buying an $80 to $150 video editing program is a no brainer. OR getting one for free on the web. But most fanboys are fansboys due to the deceptive speeches that Jobs gives during keynotes meetings. Not saying there aren’t at least a few cool items and ideas and successes, but every one I watch has hidden lies in it, exaggerations and so on. It’s always the same formula. Jobs in jeans, memorizing the crowd, OR the get-a-mac commercials with fat guy being PC and thin guy being mac, making fun of pc etc etc. Jobs has hundreds of videos where he’s subtely deceptive too. In one old one he admits that it’s all about marketing, and says he was adapting the Nike sneaker way of selling macs. Don’t talk about mips or megahertz, just talk about the future, and people who have accomplished great things, like Einstein, etc. For Nike they just used Michael Jordon and shazam, quadrupled sales. To me, apple is and always be phony, especially for their desktop computers.

      Hypnosis? Really? Doesn’t that contradict your premise that they aren’t tech savvy?

      And I can’t find your descriptions credible for the same and opposite reaction you have to mine. It’s absolutely evident that you dislike Apple and don’t use the products. I actually have used both Microsoft and Apple. In fact I still have a very nice PC at home. But my Mac is faster, more reliable, and beautiful. And of my friends that have bought the $700 PC you describe, they’ve also been through 3 of the shitty plastic things in the same time I’ve had my one Mac Book Pro.

      Oh.. and iOS7 is awesome! 🙂 Have fun looking for your Start button… is it back yet?
