Friday Funnies: Newsday iPad App Ad is Smashingly Funny



Just because it is a Friday, here’s a little comic relief. Newsday has come out with an iPad App and is doing some advertising for it. This YouTube video tells us how it is better than a traditional newspaper in all but one way. Watch to find out.

    That was pretty funny.
    I am surprised apple is not irked at the thought of implanting the public perception that the ipad is delicate.

    Most likely at the next even Steve either:
    a. kills a fly with an ipad successfully.
    b. announces that any tablet which comes swat equipped is a failure.

    Looks like Apple pressured Newsday to pull the ad. See this post:

        Good question about the comments. we’ve got a gremlin we’re trying to track down that leaves some comments closed unless we manually open them up on each post. Sorry for the inconvenience.
