Hoag and Kennedy Books Appear in iPad Commercial

Our sibling blog was paying very close attention to last night’s iPad ad, embeded here once again. GalleyCat points out that two titles from iBooks were featured in the ad: Tami Hoag’s novel, Deeper than the Dead and Ted Kennedy’s memoir, True Compass.

And Here’s a funny observation from the post: “The advertisement’s hypothetical user had eclectic tastes: shuttling between books, the NY Times articles about Florida, photos of kids, snowboarding articles, Google Maps pictures of Paris, and Star Trek.” The user also had many laps.
