Apple Posts Two New iPad Television Ads, 'Alive' and 'Together'

Apple tonight posted two new television spots for the iPad and the iPad mini on its YouTube page. The two ads, titled 'Alive' and 'Together', highlight some of the 300,000 apps made specifically for the iPad, using a variety of words to describe them.



Apps shown in the ads include AmpliTube, Style.com, GarageBand, TED, iMovie, iBooks, Dinosaur Zoo, Toca Hair Salon, The Lonely Beast ABC, Brian Cox's Wonders of the Universe, Vimeo, Rockmate, Glow Hockey 2 HD, and FaceTime.

Apple has launched a companion billboard campaign, as well.

At least these ads show people doing stuff with the device unlike the Surface where we get people dancing and an emphasis on the click of the keyboard and kickstand.

These somehow missed for me. Usually like apple's ads, but these are annoying.

Simple and to the point, as usual. There's also a sort of grace to the ads that I like very much.

It's not ALIVE until I see an iPad 5 with thinner and sexier bezel.

It's going to be a LOUD update and I prepare to dig DEEP into my wallet for it :D
