Sir has always been and still is a temporary novelty and a gimmick and the apple ads are starting to reflect this,it was after all the wool over the fans eyes to get them to buy the 4s

Apple are getting desperate, using great actors for extremely unnatural and weird ads. Dislike all of them so far.

Aw, C'mon. You disliked the Samuel L. Jackson spot? He could read the dictionary (throwing in the occasional "mother f***ing" adjective, and I'd listen to it. He's cool on wheels.
The Zooey spot? Well, she's pretty annoying in general. But the Malkovich ad is the worst by far. Very unnatural and forced looking, which is a shame because he's a great actor. Maybe bad direction?

These ads are designed to take customer's and potential customer's away from the real issues.

"what a time waste"
So what you're saying is that this is just like every other crappy TV commercial right now. A company trying using ads to get people to buy their crap, seems like this trend might catch on.

Wow, you really know how to put the dots together don't you?

Not all tv commercials are terrible. Geico has put out some great ones. Remember the beer commercials of the 70's? Chester Cheetah makes me smile.
Bad ads make me want to not buy the product. For instance, Old Navy commercials make me want to never spend a penny in Old Navy. And gouge my eyes out.

he should ask her about the meaning of this ads :D

He should ask her what's the best cell phone of all time? Now that Apple has lobotomized her on that point.

Honestly .....I couldn't agree more....Apple using these paid actors to try and. Gimmick you to buy an iPhone.....using such words as gazpacho and risotto. And what malkovich said......she would never comprehend on first try......and I guarantee after their paid. They hop right on their berrys to find work and scripts lol..........

Siri is always "I'm sorry...I'm unable to...". I call her Sorry not Siri. I don't like her being in the cloud!! She's never available when I need her!!! WTH Siri!!?? I need you in my phone, not in the freakin clouds!! I never know what she's doing up there!! All I want is to dial a number (or some meatloaf!!) and she never is available for me!!! Siri, excuse me, Sorry, remains turned-off on my 4s. An update from the iPhone 4 to 4s is an app, and Apple calls it magical!!?? WTH!!??
The Siri celeb ads were quite funny.
