Blackberry vs Apple: The Ad That Did Not Run

applerimad Call me crazy, but I wish we’d see more advertising chutzpah like this when it comes to countering Apple’s marketing mastery. I’m not against Apple or its products at all, but I think too many companies let Apple define them allow Cupertino to dominate unnecessarily (Hello, Microsoft).

    I really wish they had run that ad. I thought it was creative and had the kind of spunk needed to counter Apple in a way consumers would find entertaining.
