iPhone 3G Ad Shown at WWDC 08

iPhone 3G Ad Shown at WWDC 08

Remember the iPhone 3G ad that they were reportedly filming at the Fifth Avenue Apple Store? Well it came to fruition at WWDC and it's pretty slick. Not quite as epic as the 1984 commercial or as flashy as those iPod dancing ones, but the iPhone 3G "hallway" ad has its own appeal.

It starts with two security guards handling a silver lockbox and walking through an uber-modern, top-secret hallway. As the security guards walk, a voiceover says, "It's finally here. The first phone to beat the iPhone." As they set the safe down and it opens, the voiceover goes on to say "...introducing the NEW iPhone...3G"

How do you guys like it? Click the Read Link to watch the new ad.

iPhone Risk Domination: Apple to Launch iPhone 3G in 70+ Countries!

iPhone Risk Domination: Apple to Launch iPhone 3G in 70+ Countries!

What is best in life?

An iPhone 3G in your pocket, the wind in your hair, and 70+ markets to roam in?

WRONG!

To crush your enemies, see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentation of their handset users.

Thus Apple dropped the Steve Jobs Keynote BOOM! On the first round of iPhone Risk with news of over 70 regions signed on to carry the all new, all spectacular iPhone 3G. North America and much of Europe are currently set to get the next generation universe dent'er on July 11, with the rest "Coming Soon"/

Blanketing almost all the known continents (sorry Antarctica, see you come 4G!) and countries (with the huge gaping exception of China?), iPhone Risk, post WWDC edition, is now soundly under the "Epic Win" column, even as the scorecard strains under the map-bending load, which we include after the break.

WWDC 08: iPhone Games Roundup

You'll probably hear from a lot of people who attended WWDC that the app demo section of the keynote was much too long and even :gasp: boring. But the games showcased at WWDC continue to prove that the iPhone is going to be a force in mobile gaming.

Apple Launches MobileMe: ActiveSync + Web 2.0 Apps For the Rest of Us!

Apple Launches MobileMe: ActiveSync + Web 2.0 Apps For the Rest of Us!

During the 2008 WWDC Keynote today, Apple VP of Marketing, Phil Schiller, confirmed the rumors of a .Mac maga-revamp in the form of MobileMe.

Apple's answer both to previous critiques of the admittedly out-dated .Mac service, and the expected cloud computing boom (see Android, Google), MobileMe features ActiveSync-like "push" email, calendar, and contacts syncing between your iPhone (or iPod Touch) and your Mac or PC, or via any web browser with some pretty spectacular looking Web 2.0/AJAX style online apps. It also adds photo syncing, clearly targeting consumers.

Attack of the iClones: RIM and Samsung Double-Team Clonetacular Edition

Attack of the iClones: RIM and Samsung Double-Team Clonetacular Edition

Pop Quiz: You're the brain trust up at RIM and Samsung. You know that Apple might just be dropping something hawt today, and last time they did that they set your profitable if complacent industry on its ear, and your execs scrambling to clone catch up. So, your on the precipice of the WWDC 2008 Steve Jobs Keynote -- the only thing anyone has been talking about of late -- what do you do?

If you answered stay quiet and wait for the hype to pass, you're now officially smarter than either RIM or Samsung. Absent something innovative and decidedly non-Apple of their own to announce, better not to announce anything at all.

As such, they would have loved to give you a preview of the game but due to their NDA they're forced to edit some portions of their preview detailing the specifics of the game.
