The next big thing part II

Back in November on this blog Neil wrote about Samsung being brave enough to tackle head-on the hype that surrounds Apple’s iAnythings.

They’ve gone and done it again with a very smart and cutting ad.  Love the guy saving a spot in the line for his parents – who else can afford to buy a new £500 phone every 6-9 months.

Here’s another update to a previous iPhone parody – not sure why they call it ‘banned’:

I won’t bother linking to the raft of other iPhone 5 and iOS 6 piss-takes, although Jimmy Kimmel deserves a mention if only for his quote on how people react to new iPhone releases “Some people actually get mad… ‘why would they make another product I desperately want to buy, those bastards.'” – articulating perfectly that iPhones are £500 fashion accessories that people just won’t admit are fashion accessories (this goes for other smartphones too if we’re honest).  After all, the 4S is hardly like try to watch snooker on a black and white TV, like I remember doing.
