Apple Airs New AirPlay and FaceTime iPhone Ads

Tonight, Apple released two new iPhone commercials advertising AirPlay and FaceTime features of the iPhone 4.



The ads appear to be an extension of the "If you don't have an iPhone" campaign which started in March. This time the ads end with "just one more thing that makes an iPhone an iPhone."

These smug commercials are really annoying.

If you don't have an iPhone you're probably not a douchebag.

(yes I have an iPhone and I'm a douchebag)

Every time I see an Apple commercial, I get this weird, tingling feeling in my heart and I feel extremely happy. I believe in Apple more than I believe in Jesus. Apple stores are like church, the ads are the scriptures, and Steve is like the second coming.

Wow - extremely misleading advertising.
You can only send music via airplay if you have an airport express connected to speakers or a compatible stereo system - both of which are expensive and which isn't mentioned at all.
Want to send your photo's or watch a movie from your iPhone on TV?
Then you'll need an Apple TV for that - something else that isn't cheap and isn't mentioned.
I have 2 airport express in my home and an Apple TV and it works just great, but I think this iPhone ad is VERY misleading as it would suggest that all this is possible just via the iPhone itself - which it isn't.
Shame on you Apple! :(

I'll probably get rated down for this, but personally, for how amazingly creative Apple is known for being when it comes to their commercials, these ones are like polar opposite. To be honest it sounds like something Microsoft would do. "If you don't have..."

Apple's new iPhone ad tagline:

"If you don't have an iPhone, then you're a slave to Google."

:D

P.S - The girl running through the sprinkler is really cute...

Does anyone use Airplay? If so, in what situation?

I love both of those features, but I'd love FaceTime even more if it worked over 3G!

I mean, lets face it. If apps on the app store are allowed to use 3G for video calling, then surely an app that comes with the device should be able to!

Anyone else miss those "Hi, I am a Mac" ads? I don't really like the iPhone ads compared to the Mac ads...
