Marsalis_apple_adFor a while there, as you may recall, this blog was the official home of the Apple/Lugz controversy, and we also joined in on stirring the pot over Apple’s kerfuffle with Postal Service. However, in the interest of giving credit where credit is due, the new “iPod + iTunes” spot, featuring Wynton Marsalis, which aired on the Grammys last night, is way cool. Best of all, though it does a terrific job of evoking the Jazz Era, it doesn’t appear to be a ripoff of anything. Here’s a link to it. Enjoy.
