Macworld UK is reporting – “Misleading” Apple iPhone ad has been banned in the UK after viewers complained that the ad implied a full internet experience on the iPhone, but that because the device does not support Flash and Java these claims were incorrect.

Apple argued that the two standards in question were proprietary, and not integral to the web experience. The ASA did not agree and declared against the company on a number of counts, saying the ad breached CAP (Broadcast) TV Advertising Standards Code rules 5.1 (Misleading advertising), 5.2.1 (Evidence) and 5.2.2 (Implications).”

Very interesting! I wonder if this will have an impact on the Ad here in the states?

New Amazon Kindle? Are you Kindling me?

There is news around the “geek” blogosphere that a newly redesigned Kindle will be making its appearance soon.
 
The rumor is – The new Kindle will be thinner, come with a better screen and should sport a more stylish design with a lower price tag.

The price should be around $250 to $300, the original kindle is $359.

I believe the sleeker design and the lower price will appeal towards the younger demographic. No word yet about a color screen.
