I guess when apple will have a respond to the samsung-the next big thing is already there ads, you wouldn't find them funny either. The first two samsung ads against apple were funny but the last not

I guess we don't have the same "funny bone" located in the same place. so let's agree to disagree, as a Lover of most Apple things. i think this Ad is funny while telling the truth.

LOL, I think I got Sam-Sunged, instead of getting myself a bigger version of an iPod touch, i got me Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1, I mean why would you buy an iPod when you have an iPhone? [doesn't make sense to me] i luv my iPhone alot, but iPad? Not much.

I think is good to experience a diffident OS, but what differentiate Android devices are the manufacturer's skins, which in most cases keep Android fans experimenting with other manufacturer's devices within the same OS, unlike iOS which looks the same across all iOS Devices,

They won't feel worlds apart I mean it all feels like its on the same ecosystem (not counting sense) but there will be some noticeable differences of course. Thats one of the reasons the carriers like skins over stock to the android fan's dismay.

i wouldnt be surprised if many android phone owners also owned a ipad....its funny how some fanboys will literally just buy apple or just buy android,it makes no sense to stick to one brand when there is other better brands or devices out there.

It's kind of sad when the only way you seem
To be able to sell your product is to stereotype
The competition and incessantly mock them.

Turn by turn directions? Come on. Does Samsung think
This is the future? Is that as far as they are looking?

Me: Siri, is Samsung too old-school to matter anymore?

As a lover of things Apple [i love any gadget that'll simplify my life], At least Samsung doesn't blow things out of proportion and kind of deceive us, which is what Apple is doing with "This changes everything".

Come on! this is funny and it's all true, as a media student, this Ad tops them all from me with little details that just sprang out, when you watch the video for the second time. So let's stop making excuses for Apple. Apple needs to catch up, it's 2012 already, sometimes it's not how something is designed, it's how it functions and that little extra mile it can take [i hope i make sense]. Samsung is showing off those little details that makes SGS2 different from Apple, and that my friend it's called "Competitive Advertising"

this isn't their only commercial dude, umad siri doesnt understand you half the time or you look like a complete moron talking to your phone because you are too lazy to type whatever you want siri to find for you?

siri lol if it only worked the way it was advertised then it would be awesome...for some reason it just has a hard time even getting close to remotely what i ask...the only thing that worked consistently for me was when i asked whats the weather but its actually quicker to just go into the weather app to see the weather than to ask siri.

Siri is still in beta, in case anyone forgot. And I
Don't know what kind of weather app you're using
But my Siri is much faster than going to any weather
App. And she can do sooooo much more. Siri is the future. Voice control is the future which is why the
Siri team is now one of the largest at Apple inc.

It's so funny to watch apple make products then
Watch everyone else copy them... Then mock them
Lol when apple is clearly leading the industry

Galaxy S2 has been one of the few Android devices out there bringing a real competition with the iphone.

Funny, doesn't Google Maps for iOS come with voice navigation as well as the Android version? And Google Maps Navigation is free.

Well my iPhone 4, doesnt have voice navigation, and I use a TomTom to go around, and I'm not quite sure if it re-calculates.
