New iPhone Ad Focuses on Finding, Figuring, and Fixing

No sooner did we mention Apple's new "reading" themed iPhone ad, then another one caught our attention. Fix highlights Rocket Taxi for finding a cab, Tipulator for figuring out a tip, and MultiLevel for fixing a bookcase (presumably where your reading apps are sitting?)
