… was downloaded by someone chinese.
… was called “where’s my water” (no jokes).
… was rewarded with a $10,000 itunes gift certificate. what do you even do with that much fake money?!?
duuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuude. i’m an android fangirl, but this… this…
apple is a marketing MACHINE.
this apple “concept video” is about to go viral, and i’m about to help. this is what the past thought its future looked like…
ios has always been beautiful, and i love the ease and classiness of the user interface when i’m playing with our ipod touch or ipad2. but i always felt that there was so much more raw coolth to android — the way you could customize, the way you could add on apps and workarounds, the way google’s services integrate so neatly into anything you’re doing… i also don’t particularly like the look of mail, or the gmail app, on ios (google obviously has its priorities right, and apple probably doesn’t want to capitulate totally to google’s style…)
but this video almost (*almost*) makes me wanna switch from my incredible to the new iphone. their hardware is sleek, their software is smart… but their marketing? that’s sheer genius.
(also, i’m still a teeny bit bitter that there’s no instagram on android. the vignette app i’m using instead is cool, but it’s got nothing on the ‘gram.)
postulate 1: sxsw (south by southwest), the major music/film/tech fest happening in austin, has long been known as where the cool kids define cool before said cool hits the rest of the world.
postulate 2: the festival begins tomorrow — also the day the ipad 2 comes to market.
postulate 3: there isn’t an apple store in austin.
so, apple is *creating* a 5,000 sq. ft. popup store which will open in time for the launch on friday.
