This commercial is about the dumbest I've seen in a while. The lady with the kindle is wearing SUNGLASSES and the guy with the other device ISN'T... It doesn’t take a Rocket Scientist to conclude that it’s easier to view the screen when wearing SUNGLASSES on a bright sunny day!! I cringe every time I see this ridiculous commercial; it's an insult to humanity. It should be taken off the air A.S.A.P.

Sounding a bit insecure there. This ad is obviously targeting people who'd mainly use an iPad as an ereader.

Looks like it touched a nerve with redribbon there. An anti-glare cover? What is this, a CRT from the 80's? 900 dollars for the top iPad and you can use it to put your makeup on or have a shave, as it's so reflective.

Yup, just like you read real books in the dark... The Kindle isn't trying to be an iPad. The iPad's trying to be Kindle++.
