    I just saw a new Palm Pre ad on TV! All new, not flow! It showed the same girl looking at the screen talking about the Pre... Very cool!

    I saw one last night that I hadn't seen before. Had like a white blocky looking thing with all the multi-media features/music/etc. then it (the white blocky thing) turned and there was a girl and a pre. It was an eye catching ad. Made me want to get "that" phone. Imagine my bliss when I found it was a pre commercial Is that the one you saw?

    LOL! I just saw it, too, this very minute on CBS. She talked about seeing a juggler and all the balls he had in the air but still being able to handle them and said something about this being like her life and turned to her Pre and began swiping away.

    at least they took my suggestion, kept the girl and will use her to tell a longer story . Good to know.

    I saw it this evening, I believe on MSNBC. Sharon's description is accurate. I wasn't as impressed, struck me as "naked lady babbling about phone"! :-) If you really pay attention she has two thin straps on her shoulders holding up a wrap, however. There are some Pre ads on Youtube, but they've been up for a month or more and none of them are the one I saw (and I hadn't seen the older ones). This link on the Palm website suggests you can see their ads, but I haven't been able to get it to work:

    That's Sprint's commercial for the Pre, versus Palm's commercials. The blocky thing is a stage set that sort of has openings in it for various aspects of your online life, like Facebook. The Sprint commercial goes to the heart of using the Pre for all it's various social apps, etc. whereas the Palm commercials are more ethereal and relative to balancing your life.

    Been pretty sad with the marketing campaign so far. It's good they are doing commercials, but frankly it would be nice if they actually showed off the features.
    Number of Pre's in household: 2, one for my wife and one for myself.

    Dude! Your first link just made my browser go bonkers like it was being infected. The infinite loop syndrome with no way to shut it down and multiple windows opening!

    It could be an IE 8 thang, but jeez!

    Thanks for clarifying which one it was. I would have to say then that Sprint has the right idea, because that commercial got my attention

    It's the same woman from the first Palm Pre ad that is surrounded by the Olympic synchronized dancers in orange. What she is wearing appears to me like the dress of a ballet dancer (no not a fluffy tutu).

    From my recollection, which may be faulty, Palm has a total of five different ads they'll be airing.

    You've got a real phone, now get a real browser.


    If these are airing on TV, why in the world are they not somewhere that can be played online? Bandwidth is much cheaper than air time.

    People seem to relate to the iphone more because the commercials helps them 'understand' it better. They always show a "this is email", "this is how you browse the web", "this is how you find a place to eat", etc. People 'understand' how to use essential functions of the phone when the commercial is over. Each different commercial builds upon the last, to show another specific function that will have mass appeal.


    Palm's commercials leaves a mystery taste in the back of the mouth. People will still want to know what the Pre does but they don't want to actually put forth the effort to learn about it on their own. They want it spoon fed to them right there in the commercial, which Apple actually does. Palm needs to work on marketing in such a way that shows that people don't need to 'learn' to use the Pre. Everyday common gestures will allow them to use it to its full capacity. You can't make someone want to learn something.

    Honey, I don't even have a real phone YET. I'm just posting in envy. I'm unemployed right now and it's kinda hard to justify the expense considering my unemployment check is sorta needed to cover actual bills.

    I figured I've give IE8 a try, but I'm thinking more and more to go back to Firefox. It seemed promising in the beginning, but crap still happens, although less often than previous versions.

    Whew! Glad it wasn't just me. I had to shut down the computer via the surge protector. I did read about a new ActiveX vulnerability they've yet to patch which can be picked up just by being directed to an infected page.

    DANG! I just got this computer (it's a refurb turned science project for me; ripping out some old guts from a better equipped puter with a dead processor and putting the parts in this one) and haven't yet installed a virus protector.

    (sigh) Hey Norton! We've got an appt. tonight.
