Apple: What You’re Missing Without an iPhone

So Apple wants to make sure everyone knows what they’re missing if they don’t have an iPhone.  In their latest advertisement campaign, Apple has created a string of new television advertisements to push all the advantages of having an iPhone.

With the craze of Android and competition becoming tougher, digging into Apple’s profits, this move promotes the easy connectivity to their other popular products and features such as iPod, iTunes, iBooks, and of course the App Store.

Do these ads make you want to buy an iPhone?

    Not missing anything, But in saying that if your the kind of person who likes simplicity over functionality then the i-stuff is for you.

    If you want functionality at all, you're pretty much bound to jailbreak which still doesn't do much, in fact some (most) people use it to pirate apps..

    SmochinaAnd who's at fault for Iphone's walled it OS? You moron, when you pirate software, music you are pushing developers towards walled it environments. You know, those people that work their asses off to make applications, to create music, art, books. All those people have families to feed and take care off. So screw you and your 'freedom'.
    Wow... You, uh, realize that Apple's fascist attitude toward its hardware and software has little to do with piracy, and everything to do with control? They literally have a stranglehold on a demographic who will throw money at them whenever they release a new product, regardless of functionality/quality. If Apple allows their sheep to be exposed to the outside world, then they risk losing that stranglehold, and they're going to f**k that chicken for as long as they possibly can.

So screw you and your 'freedom'.Being able to install apps that aren't from one app store does not mean you pirate them, stop being so stupid. What most people like about Android is the ability to customize and not having Jobs deny an app just cause it does something better then Apple's built in app. I tried an iPhone long ago and decided I did not want it when I couldn't change the background, something my then 3 year old phone could already do, that is the freedom people want, don't assume people who want open phones want to pirate.

    Pirating has nothing to do with not liking the iphone smochina, which is obviously done on a regular basis on said phone. People like choices, and have every right in my country to have their own opinion. And I'm pretty sure we all enjoy our freedom in the US...

    No, it's not the fault of pirates that Apple has walled iOS. They, unlike google, want to have complete and total control over the user experience with their product. And by walling in their product, things like Flash and 3rd party apps are nonexistant. I jailbroke my piece of iShit in order to watch flash video with iMobileCinema, as well as use SBSettings to quickly enable/disable things like Wi-Fi, my VPN, change my brightness, and manage running processes. Not to mention being able to play NES and SNES games from ROM's that I legally own. Oh, and changing the theme with Winterboard is pretty great as well. Pirated software has absolutely nothing to do with walled OS's. Keep your Apple fanboy-dom to yourself in the future, trolllll.
