The Big Apple

Cool new iPhone ad, targeted at NYC.

Thanks, Dave.

From a posting at

"It's made by a production company called "The Consultants." It's certainly more representative of real life in New York City than the other "diversity" oriented ads I've seen.

According to, this ad was the result of a Craigslist casting call. The casting call asked for "people of diverse ethnic backgrounds discussing different functions and attributes of the unreleased phone in their native tongue while participating in everyday activities." The song used is called "Young Folks" By Peter Bjorn and John.

So what's your take on all this iPhone mania? Are massive amounts of people going to fork over $600 and upwards of $60 a month for this thing? We've got 12 days left. Are you gonna get one?"

I'd like to get one, but can't really afford it. Plus, I'd rather wait till version 2.0, let the early adopters deal with all the bugs. On the bright side, I'm already on Cingular/AT+T, so the switchover won;t be bad.

Also, I don't like owning stuff that is so ostentatious. I've never been into the whole "look at me and my expensive toy" thing.
