Here is what the banned iPhone advertisement should really look like. :)

"Apple was forced to pull a television advertisement in the UK for the iPhone 3G after the Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) decided it exaggerated the speed of mobile browsing.

In the 30-second clip the iPhone is shown loading a webpage, finding its current location in Google Maps, opening a PDF from an email and finally taking a phone call.

The ASA concluded that the iPhone cannot do what was shown in the mere 29 seconds afforded in the advert, ruling that it was misleading. So this site (see link above) decided to replicate the clip to see how long the advert should really be."

What i don't get with these adverts is MANY people fail to see the small print on the bottom of the advert saying something about "actions simulated" or "speeds simulated"

I saw something like that on one of the adverts. The others idk if its there but i just watched all iPhone adverts and i do have to say....what ever firmware that phone is running on i want it now, im kinda tired of the lag.

Unfortunately.... i cant update just yet. Since i lost almost everything on my old dell laptop im kinda stuck without a computer and i refuse to buy vista to pass the time.

Ill soon be going to London for college, so hopefully i can get my hands on the new Macbook pro's for Christmas with an education discount.

and thats why its called a commercial and not a whole television show.

I'm sorry, but people who believe the speeds in the commercial are dumb and they have no one to blame but themselves.

If they wanted the real speed, then Apple would have to schedule a time slot on a channel and make it a reality t.v. show or something.

Use common sense people!

Whoa whoa whoa! So you mean to tell me that I won't be able to renovate my whole house in less that 30 minutes like those HGTV shows? That's really misleading! I think I'm gonna have to speak with my attorney now.
