    ROFL!!! That’s why I love using my Bose Bluetooth headset and on occasion my jawbone Bluetooth headset. Now pat yourself on the back Apple… I can see them telling each other that it’s a new innovation and they will be suing everyone in 3 years for using their innovation!!!!

  • fordcom

    I hate Apple

  • MrNewCastrati

      I see you haven’t moved on from the election. So sad.

      • Hanz Y

        he’s probably the same folks that predicted a Romney landslide. lol

    Well they don’t have any innovations anymore so they only have to try to make look the phone like a good one. Poor Apple the noise canceling and the panoramic picture are things that other phones had it already and they are not making a lawsuit of that. (Of course Apple had to patent the turning of pages “ridiculous” they are not the one to create it that effect but the first one to patent it. I think the patent laws have to change).

    I’m not a fan of either sides, I have the Note 2 and iPhone 5 (I prefer the Note 2 though). As a consumer the more the choices, the better it is for us. The noise cancelling maybe old tech, but why is it that iPhone 5 is the only latest tech phone using 3 microphones? And I can tell you that it does work! A lot of times when I am in a noisy environment and using my Note 2, the person on the other side of the line tells me they can’t hear me clearly because of the background noise. I call them back with the iPhone 5 and the problem is solved. So, I’m not laughing at this Ad and fact is, there will be many others who will also acknowledge the call quality of the iPhone 5 and the marketing message gets passed on. Apple has excellent marketing strategies, whether or not the content is BS, it still works for Apple, their products focus on the details a lot more and thats one of the reasons why they still have increasing sales. Moreover, they are taking over 70% of the operating profits in the smartphone industry. Samsung is the only manufacturer other than Apple thats making real money in this business. For the hardcore Android fans, sure, Android dominants because of the large alliance of manufacturers using the Android OS. However, in the real world for these tech companies, making profit is what counts and Apple is by far dominating the smartphone industry.

    • Moto phones have had 3 mics since the droid x…hence the lulz

    this was one of the features of my first smartphone.. the Droid X

  • smirkis

    i laugh at apple commercials. from the noise canceling to CHEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE -ahhhh- EEEEEEEEEESE. apple is halarious

  • Mike Clark

    so let me get this straight… how many people think Apple gets their ideas from google?

  • CapnShiner

    When I first saw this ad I nearly facepalmed myself. This is a feature that most Android phones have had for years. It’s never really been marketed and I assume that’s because it’s actually pretty old technology that was around long before either the G1 or the original iPhone. If Apple is resorting to using such an antiquated Idea to market the iPhone, they must really be scraping the bottom of the barrel. I wonder how long Apple can keep this up- releasing “new” iPhones with “new features” after those same features have been available for at least a year on Android devices. I think Apple’s record of innovation died along with Steve Jobs.

  • trololol

    Droid life is running out of things to talk about so they post this and recommend crappy games that might steal your info. Then delete your comment and block your ip

  • Drgn

    So let me get this straight they are showing how good the noise canceling feature which means they never perfected it before or never had it at all in the previous iphone models. Plus what is up with the panoramic feature all android phones had that featuse ever since day one.

  • johnc7995

    Why does this article even exist? What relevance does this story have with Android? Absolutely nothing, that’s what.

    Kellex and his obsession with Apple is really getting annoying.

    • Nickan Fayyazi

      It’s just a reminder to Android fans that Apple is still evil and stupid.

  • G Davis

    I have the iPhone 5, only because it is a work phone. The ad is pretty pathetic yes, but the noise cancelling mic does at least work as they say. I hate when you are told something works this way, and of course never does except in the perfect test environment settings

  • sk3litor

    I think apples genius comes from targeting ads towards t the ignorance of people. things that intelligent people take for granite, people like Kim Kardashian say things like ” like omg this is like totally cool. It’s like my phone totally has a brain… like!”

    • SeanBello

      what about the people that say “take for granite”? lol

  • MikeKorby

    is there just a single compilation of all these misleading ads? Perhaps a side-by side where the ad is on the left, and the original product the idea was stolen from on the right?

  • I am waiting for the “it’s dark grey with an apple logo” ad.

    • Nickan Fayyazi

      I’m waiting for the “It’s a tangible object” ad.

  • whytecountry

    Apple is so advanced. My Droid X from 2 years ago only had THREE mics 🙁
