Remains of the Day: Seeing is believing
Apple devices could let you get a little FaceTime Santa, Apple designs its retail stores with vision, and one musician wants to juice up your smartphone’s camera. The remainders for Monday, November 26, 2012 are seen and not heard.
You’d be excused for mistaking this Best Buy ad, in which a young boy uses a variety of Apple products to try and meet Santa, for an Apple commercial. Except for the end, when the salesperson tries to upsell the kid to a Surface.
An internal video from Apple’s retail division teaches us two things: First, Apple’s internal videos are basically exactly like its external videos. Second, I bet John Browett’s sad he never got his moment on the stool.
The first product developed by the Black Eyed Peas musician is an external camera with a higher-quality sensor and flash that attaches to the iPhone. Just as long as it doesn’t turn my smartphone into this genius.
