iPhone ad Banned

August 29th, 2008 by admin

Ironically, it was just our last post where we griped that the great music sharing site, grooveshark, could not be used on iPhone because it does not have flash capability. And today we hear that Apple have had their wrists slapped for claiming in a UK ad that:

“all the parts of the internet are on the iPhone”

Check the “offending ad” out in this video!

Apparently this ad sparked a lot of hostile objections, with UK consumers claiming that the ad will totally mislead potential buyers as to the iPhone’s capability (we wonder why the Apple promoters think this is necessary?) Enough so that it got investigated by the Advertising Standards Authority in the UK and they banned the ad!

And that was despite Apple’s best attempt to argue that their statement was - in ‘some sense’ -true!

Hmmm… Another dark mark against the once seemingly highly ethical company? What was that old saying about absolute power…?

What do you think?

Grooveshark we can listen to just about any music ever produced - all for free! Now, just so you know, you can’t copy any of the music. Its more like listening to a radio station - only you get to choose what you listen to and when!

But - sad fact is it can’t be got on our iPhones - it runs in flash, so….

So we figure its time for an application to be developed just for us iPhone lovers. Dan Wasyluk over at the TheDanosphere is in full agreement and has even set up a way we can let the people over at Grooveshark know that we all want a Grooveshark app for our iPhone! Just follow the ‘21′ link to give the idea your thumbs up!
