Ouch: Apple iPhone Ad Banned in UK

iPhone 3G

Looks like the people in Apple’s advertising department might be in danger of some extended time off. The iPhone ad that shows off the new iPhone 3G was banned by the advertising standards watchdog because the webpages in the ad loaded way too fast. Well, not that every iPhone ad doesn’t show this, but I guess the particular ad was just too out there for the Watchdog group to deem fair to consumers.

Apple stated the claims the ad made were “relative rather than absolute in nature” – basically they were comparing the first generation iPhone 2G’s speed with that of the 3G. Totally not implying you’d be able to load up the New York Times homepage in under one little second because they wanted you to buy the new iPhone.
