the apple "bean counter" ad.

Wow. Are there really any words for this?

Well, actually, there are words, and they were said by Michael Arrington, my favorite technology blogger.

Suddenly, Apple looks a little elitist. I mean, they were elitist before, but in a way that made you want to be a part of the club. Now, they just seem a little snobby.
At the time, Arrington was referring to a new Apple ad in the NYT, nearly a month ago, but stated plainly that these ads simply aren't funny anymore.

Erick Schonfeld, also of TechCrunch, made some pretty valid points about the two new ads as well.

I'm still a happy Apple user, but I'm exasperated with the petty picking already. It's time for a new campaign.
