After receiving harsh criticism from fans, Apple has pulled ads that featured an Apple 'Genius' from its YouTube channel.

The ads first aired during the Olympic Opening Ceremonies and were met with immediate dislike.

Ken Segall, the agency creative director that named the iMac, said, Repeat after me: "The sky is not falling. The sky is not falling." I know it's hard to say after viewing the new batch of Mac ads that debuted on the Olympics. I'm still in a bit of shock myself.

It appears Apple now believes the ads may be doing more harm than good, thus their removal from YouTube.

Isn't it common knowledge that Apple devices are designed for people that are not technically inclined. Every day 50,000 people get serviced at a Genius Bar.
