‘Newsday’ Ad With Smashed iPad Riles Apple


Apple recently took the next step in becoming a cult by overreacting to fake mistreatment of its precious iPad. Specifically, they took exception to the Newsday ad below, by the Brooklyn Brothers, in which a guy mistakes his iPad for a newspaper and goes after a fly with it, smashing it to pieces. Oddly, the ad promotes Newsday's iPad app, but an anonymous Newsday employee tells the press that Apple freaked out and threatened to yank the app if the paper didn't kibosh the ad. How ridiculous is that? Next they'll be demanding that people stop making iPad smoothies in their Blendtec blenders. Via Geek.com.
