i don't find anything anti-iphone in this ad, all they are doing is promoting their product like others doing, but the wakeup protest you can say was anti-iphone, and these kind of cheap marketing tactics are not effecting iPhone.

It seems people are hearing what they want to believe here. This is a 100% positive slant ad. There is no hint of a mention of any other device, it just says that the blackberry is the only choice for business. Fair enough, talking up your biggest market and biggest strength. People really seem to want to kick BB when they're down! I agree that if the wake up campaign was by blackberry then that shows desperation, but highlighting the fact that most apple product owners have sheeplike tendencies is the most obvious chink in the apple armour. I can see why they went that way, if it indeed was them.

Unfortunately, such were the Nokia fans, such are the fAndroids and such will be the fans of ANY future dominating brand (I'm talking about your 'sheep-like' reference). So, for less stressful days in your life, learn to live with that!

I'd laugh if apple did a one of their slick marketing ads slating RIM! Blackberry OS 10 ain't going to save your sorry ass...
