New iPhone App Store Ads... Will Change Everything

Already seen Dark Knight like 5 times and itching for some new content to fill your Saturday night? Well, if you're into short form, Apple has your fix of three all new, all App Store-focused new iPhone ads.

Continuing to showcase function -- almost the polar opposite of the Mac "Switcher" ads -- these make for a pretty smart next step in iPhone marketing, especially when it comes to the new tag line:

This changes everything.
