Apple’s iPhone 4S Santa Siri ad was the most effective holiday advertisement

Apple’s iPhone 4S Santa Siri ad was the most effective advertisement for the holiday season according to ad analysis company Ace Metrix.

Ace Metrix scores ads based on perceived effectiveness by a selection of randomly selected viewers, which it says are “representative of the U.S. TV viewing audience.”

Apple’s ad scored 652 points out of a total of 950 and beat other huge manufacturers like Coca Cola, Nintendo and Duracell. The ad shows Santa using Siri on an iPhone 4S to help him with his annual task of delivering presents all over the world.

The Three Stooges aren't quite sure what to make of the iPhone

Larry, Curly and Moe are coming back to the big screen in 2012, and they aren't quite sure what to make of the iPhone 4S.

Amplify your iPhone with this ceramic handcrafted passive megaphone [video]

Italian design company en&is has manufactured a ceramic passive megaphone to use with your iPhone to amplify its sound. If you want to avoid the raft of powered iPhone speaker docks and are looking for something just that little bit different, this could be for you.

The horn like design sits on a thin wooden frame which allows it to float off the table to optimize the sound experience. The iPhone slips into the top of the horn and all you need to do is press play. The megaphone will then passively amplify the sound into the room. It can also be used as a speakerphone if you so wish.
